Jumbo-Visma will back Jonas Vingegaard's top-ten aspirations in this year's Tour de France but have insisted that Primož Roglič will return next year and aim to win the race after crashing out in 2021.

Roglič came down heavily in the first week and struggled before abandoning the race on the eve of stage 9. The Slovenian came into the race as the joint favourite, having finished second last year and won back-to-back editions of the Vuelta a España in 2019 an 2020.
