Dumoulin: "I can give 5 names capable of winning the Giro"

Roglic, Yates, Nibali and Miguel Ángel López are some of the main rivals highlighted by the Dutch for Cyclingnews.

Tom Dumoulin will be on the starting line of Giro de Italia for the fourth consecutive year. The Dutchman will lead the Sunweb team with the highest possible aspiration: to conquer his second Corsa Rosa, which would also be the second Grand Vuelta of his career to date.

I'm definitely in a much better situation than last year, mentally, last year, after spring, I made a change and it was much better. "44444 44

And as for his rivals for the victory, Dumoulin did not shrug when it came to giving several important names of the international squad: "There are really a lot of favorites. I could name five runners who could win, who definitely have a great chance of winning. I'm one of them, I hope. Roglic was very good this spring, like last year, and he was still excellent on the Tour. Definitely going to be one of the big opponents, along with Simon Yates and Vincenzo Nibali. Nibali showed good form again in the Tour of the Alps. We also have to be alert to Miguel Ángel López. There is a long list of contenders and I am aware that it will not be easy to win the Tour of this year ".
