Primož Roglič has warned that Jumbo-Visma need to ‘think carefully’ about how they balance his ambitions with those of Wout Van Aert at next year’s Tour de France

Roglič has enjoyed sole leadership with luxury assistance from Van Aert in the past two years but suffered disappointment on both occasions, losing the yellow jersey on the penultimate day in 2020 before crashes derailed his ambitions this year.
