2017 Giro d’Italia winner, Tom Dumoulin pointed out: “It’s a new year, new start. I don’t see it as defending my title. I’m going back to do my best. It’s s cliche but it’s true: everybody starts from zero on January 1.”

The Dutchman added: “We looked at the courses of Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France and the Giro was more favourable to me. I’d like to go for the win again.”

Dumoulin was also awarded the Association Internationale des Journalistes du Cyclisme (AIJC) most media-friendly rider. “I’m honoured to receive this award and bring it back to the team,” explained Dumoulin. “We really value a good relationship with the media and understand that this is part of my job as a cyclist throughout the year. I’m pleased to be considered as an approachable, keen-to-talk rider and I am happy that this is appreciated by the award.”
