Cyclist Dylan Groenwegen will make his comeback in the Giro d’Italia after his suspension. First, the 27-year-old sprinter from Jumbo-Visma would return in the Tour of Hungary. The AD reported that he and his team have therefore opted for a larger event.
The newspaper reported, among other things, that the much-discussed Groenewegen would first start at a quieter, somewhat less important course.
Groenewegen rode his fellow countryman Fabio Jakobsen in August during the Tour of Poland last year. Jakobsen was seriously injured and was in a coma for a few days. Groenewegen did not come off well, was under fire and was suspended by the UCI for 9 months.
Jakobsen recently made his comeback in the Tour of Turkey. That went well and the team management of Jumbo thought differently with regard to Groenewegen. Groenewegen replaces Chris Harper by the way. The Australian has an injury.
Dylan Groenewegen makes his return in the Giro d’Italia. The sprinter, who will be suspended for nine months until May 7, has been added to Jumbo-Visma’s selection for the first big round of the year.
The Giro starts on Saturday, May 8. https://t.co/NNVM2acaLS
