The bewildered look of Elia Viviani and the primal cry of the Belgian. You know, that sprint victory of Wout van Aert (25) in the Tour 2019. We will not see a repeat this year with 95 percent certainty. In the mass sprints, Van Aert has to keep the leaders out of the skirmishes and also in the transition stages only the final classification of Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk and Primoz Roglic counts, “Wout is a 100 percent servant in the Tour and he sees that completely to sit. He wants to contribute to the overall victory in Paris ”, says Merijn Zeeman, sports manager of Jumbo-Visma.
