Tom Dumoulin says that Jumbo-Visma will have to adapt and be more clever with their tactics at the Tour de France even though Primož Roglič  has demonstrated a level above the rest individually, and the Dutch team have dominated their rivals at the recent Tour de l'Ain and so far at the Critérium du Dauphiné as a group.

"This tactic of being on the front and each of us setting the pace one after another is fine at this race where all we're focused on is Primoz taking victory, but it won't work at the Tour where everyone else's level will be higher. We'll need a different tactical plan there," said Dumoulin after the Dauphiné's third stage.
