“I was concentrated on the Tour in 2018, as was my team (Sunweb),” Dumoulin told journalists at a presser in Berlin to present the 2019 team and program.

“But this Giro route looks very interesting, while the Tour route this year seems extremely hard,” explained the 2017 world time trial champion.

“As I totally love the Giro, I’m absolutely delighted with the decision.”  said Dumoulin.
