Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) may have arrived at the Vuelta a Espana with one eye on the World Time Trial Championships in Richmond, but lying second overall and just five seconds off the lead after four days, it would be remiss not to try to make hay while the sun shines at the end of his campaign.
It’s a philosophy that has served him well already this year, after all. Dumoulin’s season was centred on the Tour de France and he appeared on the verge of becoming the first Dutchman in the yellow jersey in 26 years only to crash and dislocate his shoulder en route to Mur de Huy on stage 3.
