With three of their Grand Tour riders heading to the Tour de France this July, the Jumbo-Visma squad have put their faith and trust in George Bennett for the Giro d’Italia. 

The New Zealander was not selected alongside Tom Dumoulin, Primoz Roglic and Steven Kruijswijk for the Tour de France, but with the Dutch team putting so much emphasis on ending Team Ineos’ reign at the Tour, the 29-year-old will be handed the chance to ride for himself in Italy.
