Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) is the current UCI time trial world champion, and has one Grand Tour title to his name – the 2017 Giro d’Italia.

Despite his best efforts, Dumoulin was not able to overtake GC lead Chris Froome (Team Sky) in the 2018 edition of the race, finishing second overall.

He’s currently in second on the GC at the Tour de France, sandwiched between Team Sky’s Froome and Geraint Thomas. 

In 2017, the Dutchman moved into the Giro lead last year following a powerful performance in the stage ten time trial. He lost valuable time during stage 16, when a nature break forced him to stop before the final climb. However he maintained the pink jersey until stage 19, where he lost it to Nairo Quintana (Movistar) – but his time trial performance on the final stage was enough for him to win the general classification.

The Dutchman’s time trial and climbing ability has drawn comparisons with 2012 Tour/Oympic winner Bradley Wiggins, and Dumoulin himself has said that he has been inspired by the Briton’s performance.

Having steadily built up a solid selection of results, Dumoulin’s breakout season came in 2015. After disappointingly crashing out of the Tour de France on stage three, Dumoulin went on to give a stand-out performance in the 2015 Vuelta a España, winning two stages of the race and only dropping out of the lead on the penultimate day.

The Dutch rider has collected a host of Grand Tour time trial wins, including the opening time trial stage of the 2016 Giro d’Italia at home in the Netherlands, stages 9 and 13 of the Tour de France (both ITT). He was also second in the 2016 Rio Olympics, behind Fabian Cancellara, who Chris Froome called ‘unbeatable’.
