Jumbo-Visma sports director Merijn Zeeman has given the Belgian press a glimpse of which races the team's riders may take part in when the revised UCI calendar hopefully begins again with Strade Bianche on August 1. According to Het Nieuwsblad, serious training will begin again for the team from June 1.

As previously reported, Zeeman said that the plan remains for Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk and Primoz Roglic to spearhead Jumbo-Visma's Tour de France challenge, and suggested that Belgians Wout van Aert and Laurens De Plus would also be part of the squad for La Grande Boucle, which has been rescheduled to take place from August 29-September 20.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
