Visma-Lease a Bike
2022 and 2023 Tour de France champion Jonas Vingegaard, born December 10, 1996 in Hillerslev, Denmark turned professional in 2016 with the Danish Continental team ColoQuick-Cult and with a top finish in the Tour du Loir et Cher and taking best young rider, he gained the attention of Jumbo-Visma and signed as a neo-pro in 2019. A win on a tough stage of the Tour de Pologne was his first major professional result. The COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 interrupted his season but he made his Grand Tour debut in the Vuelta a España, where he supported teammate Primož Roglič in the overall victory.
Vingegaard had his breakthrough season in 2021, winning the Jebel Jais stage of the UAE Tour ahead of Tadej Pogačar, then claiming two stages and the overall of the Settimana Coppi e Bartali. After finishing as best young rider in the Itzulia Basque Country, Vingegaard made the Jumbo-Visma Tour de France squad and soon proved his talents.
He entered the 2021 Tour de France as a backup plan for leader Roglič and, when the Slovenian crashed out, Vingegaard tenaciously clung onto Pogačar, tracking him closely though the Pyrenees to hold onto second place.
In 2022, Vingegaard showed he was equal to the two-time Tour de France champion Pogačar or better, and took the maillot jaune off his rival's shoulders on stage 11 to the Col du Granon, going onto win outright.
In 2023, Vingegaard had another stellar season, claiming his second Tour de France overall win with a blistering display of force in the stage 16 time trial then crushing arch-rival Pogačar in the remaining Alpine stages. Vingegaard also turned in dominating performances in the Itzulia Basque Countryand Critérium du Dauphiné. Following the Tour captured two major mountain stages in the Vuelta a España en route to second overall behind Jumbo-Visma teammate Sepp Kuss.
