The Dutchman who will be in the Giro d'Italia spoke ahead of the 2022 season
Tom Dumoulin is one of the most anticipated runners this season also at Fantacycling . The Dutchman, who had stopped to "take a weight off his shoulders", is back in the final of 2021, showing some glimpses of his quality, but now he is ready to return to what he was, or one of the strongest runners in racing in stages. It will not be easy, but the talent is intact and at the Fantacycling level, betting on him could be interesting, given that he will race in the Giro d'Italia and will not have a prohibitive price: 20 million . Meanwhile, the Jumbo Visma rider talked about his last period to Ciro Scognamiglio of La Gazzetta dello Sport , saying he had no regrets about the stop: "It helped me not only mentally but also physically - said Dumoulin - I was ended up over-training: I didn't recover well, sometimes I didn't rest well, even the blood values were not good. The break did me a lot of good ».
Will it extend his career? “I don't see it that way. I will continue as long as I like it and as long as I have the desire to bet for the maximum. Whether it will be for a year or ten ... I don't know and I don't care to know. '
Tom, why did you decide to come back after the break? «Not so much the love of the bike: I have that even without being a professional. I would say that I still had the desire to aspire to the maximum, to bring out the best in myself. Then, I realized that being able to fight for the standings on a great lap is special. Few are capable of it, I am one of them. This is a great story, which I am writing for myself » .
