After falling just short at the Tour de France, Jumbo-Visma’s collective strength delivered a Grand Tour triumph at the Vuelta a España, where Primož Roglič secured overall victory for the second year in succession in Madrid on Sunday.

George Bennett was part of Roglič’s supporting cast in both France and Spain, and he believes that Jumbo-Visma have established themselves as a reference point for the rest of the peloton, though he acknowledged that maintaining their position into 2021 will be a challenge.
