Tom Dumoulin is Team Sunweb’s grand tour general classification leader.

In 2017, he became the UCI time trial world champion, and won the Giro d’Italia.

The same success could not be matched in 2018, where he was second at the Giro, Tour de France, UCI world champs time trial and team time trial.

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.

However, in more recent years he has worked on his climbing, helping him in the three week grand tours.

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’.
