Still handicapped by his knee, Tom Dumoulin will not participate in the Vuelta
The nightmare continues for Tom Dumoulin. After having to decide to forfeit for the Tour de France, the leader of the Sunweb will also not participate in the Vuelta. He is still not sufficiently recovered from the knee injury that forced him to abandon the Giro in May. The news was announced by his team at the Dutch daily AD.
Dumoulin dropped off during the fourth stage of the Tour of Italy the following day during the parade route. He then did everything to start the Tour de France, lining up for the start of the Dauphiné, before having to give up again. Still in recovery, he is not sure he can use this season.
