Team Jumbo-Visma superior in Tour de France Team Time Trial

Team Jumbo-Visma has won the Team Time Trial in the Tour de France in a superior way. In Brussels, the team covered the 27.6 kilometres in a time of 28'57, twenty seconds ahead of number two Ineos. As a result, Mike Teunissen retained his leading position in the overall classification. The team now occupies the first five positions. Teunissen is also in possession of the green points jersey. Wout van Aert has taken the white jersey as he now is the leader in the best young rider classification.

For Team Jumbo-Visma, it is the third victory in a team time trial in just a few months time. Last year, the team won the team time trial in the Tour of Britain and earlier this year in the UAE Tour. It is the 37th victory of the team this season.

“Today, everything came together”, Teunissen said. “You can see that everything is possible if you are in a flow. We maintained our speed and everyone worked very well. The boys were all very strong. Our big goal was to win the team time trial. We succeeded and that is simply amazing. The fact that I won yesterday was very nice, but winning as a team is actually even better. We haven’t won here with eight, but with about one hundred people. This is the reward for all the hard work that we put into this the past few weeks, months and even years, with the right people in the right positions. Holding on to the yellow is a nice bonus. Now I can enjoy the yellow jersey for a whole day tomorrow.”

Leader Steven Kruijswijk was very happy with the victory. “I was not focused on my position in the GC today. The fact that I am gaining time on my competitors here is a nice bonus. We came here to win the team time trial and we succeeded in that. Wout, Mike and Tony were the team’s engines. All went well today, the pace was good and everyone did their job. We went really fast. We have started the Tour well and hopefully we can keep this flow in the coming days and weeks to achieve even more.”

According to performance manager Mathieu Heijboer, this is the ultimate triumph after years of investment. “This is really fantastic. In 2015, when we started with Team LottoNL-Jumbo, the team time trial became a very important part of our process. We have had a steady development with ups and downs. Recently we were in a good flow with the victories in the Tour of Britain and the UAE Tour and the second place in the Tirreno-Adriatico. Today, everything fell into place. We worked on this team time trial for weeks and months. We did a recon of the course several times and we went through various scenarios. We were really confident and the yellow jersey provided us with extra motivation. This victory characterizes our team and the philosophy we have. Winning together.”
