Jumbo-Visma's Tom Dumoulin – currently riding in the service of team leader and race leader Primoz Roglic at the Tour de France – is not ruling out racing the elite men's individual time trial at the World Championships on September 25. The 2017 TT world champion said that everything will depend on how he's feeling after finishing the Tour on September 20, which is all that's occupying his thoughts for the time being.

As Dutch newspaper the Algemeen Dagblad pointed out on Friday, Dumoulin hasn't raced a time trial since June 2019 at the Critérium du Dauphiné, and the Tour de France's mountain time trial on La Planche des Belles Filles on the penultimate stage of the race should give him some indication of what he might be capable of.
