Jumbo-Visma: Dominating the Tour de France
Jumbo-Visma has emerged as a major force in professional cycling, particularly at the Tour de France, where their strategic acumen and team strength have challenged the dominance of traditionally stronger teams like Team Ineos Grenadiers.

The Rise of Jumbo-Visma

Jumbo-Visma, a Dutch professional cycling team, has roots that trace back to the 1980s but took its current form in 2015 when the supermarket chain Jumbo became a co-sponsor. The addition of Visma in 2019 further bolstered the team’s resources, allowing for strategic acquisitions and a focus on developing a high-caliber roster capable of winning Grand Tours.

Team Strategy and Strength

The team's strategy revolves around a strong lineup where multiple riders are capable of challenging in the General Classification (GC), creating a multifaceted attack strategy. This approach was evident in their Tour de France campaigns, where they often had more than one rider in contention for the yellow jersey.

Key Achievements

  • Tour de France 2019: The team marked its presence strongly, with multiple stage wins and a significant challenge for the overall classification.

  • Tour de France 2020 and 2021: Jumbo-Visma was a central figure, with Primož Roglič and later, Wout van Aert, showing outstanding performances. Roglič, in particular, wore the yellow jersey for many stages, although the team faced heartbreak in the final time trial in 2020.

Key Riders

  • Primož Roglič: A former ski jumper turned cycling phenom, Roglič has been crucial for the team’s success at the Tour de France, finishing on the podium multiple times.

  • Wout van Aert: Known for his versatility, Van Aert has achieved several stage victories and has been instrumental in both flat and mountain stages, supporting his team leaders and also securing wins himself.

  • Jonas Vingegaard: The latest star to rise from the Jumbo-Visma ranks, Vingegaard has quickly made a name for himself as a formidable contender in Grand Tours, notably clinching victory at the 2022 and 2023 Tour de France. His remarkable climbing abilities and time-trialing prowess have positioned him as a central figure in the team’s future plans.

Innovations and Future Prospects

Jumbo-Visma has not only focused on strong team dynamics but also on technological and training innovations. They are pioneers in adopting new training techniques and technologies, including advanced aerodynamics and race simulations, to give their riders an edge.

The team has also been actively involved in developing younger talents through its development team, ensuring a strong future lineup to continue its presence at the top of professional cycling.


Jumbo-Visma’s strategy, innovation, and team depth have allowed them to challenge the dominance of other teams in the Tour de France and are set to be a defining feature of professional cycling for years to come. As they continue to build on their successes and learn from their challenges, their influence in the world of cycling is only expected to grow, making them a team to watch in every race they enter.
