Jumbo-Visma's Dylan Groenewegen has reiterated that he'll be targeting sprint victories at this season's rescheduled Giro d'Italia in October, while his team will keep its focus on the general classification at the rescheduled Tour de France.

Even without the enforced suspension of the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 26-year-old sprinter was always set to race at the Giro, which was originally due to run from May 9-31, and not at the Tour, where Jumbo-Visma's focus was always going to be – and is set to remain – on its three general classification leaders, Steven Kruijswijk, Primoz Roglic and Tom Dumoulin.
