Edoardo Affini has been part of Team Jumbo-Visma since 2021. The Italian significantly impacted the success of the opening weekend of the 2022 Vuelta in the Netherlands. Affini wore the red leader's jersey for a day after the team had won the time trial. Affini has also reaffirmed his abilities several times in the Giro. He has already achieved a top-three finish in a single stage four times. In Australia, he demonstrated his ability to overcome himself in a race against the clock. At the World Championships in Wollongong, he won a stunning silver medal during the Mixed Relay with his country. In 2023, the Italian was an important part of Olav Kooij's sprint train, which last year managed 13 victories. He was also part of the team that gave Team Jumbo-Visma, with Primoz Roglic, its first overall victory in the Giro d'Italia.
