Zvečer je pred začetkom dirke po Španiji potekala slavnostna predstavitev ekip in kolesarjev. Predtem so imeli favoriti novinarsko konferenco. Med šesterico tudi Primož Roglič.

"Končati tritedensko dirko na odru je lepo. Ampak to mu je uspelo že na Giru. Zdaj želim tukaj zmagati."
Primož Roglič
Primož Roglič, ob njem pa Miguel Angel Lopez, Nairo Quintana, Alejandro Valverde, Jakob Fuglsang in Esteban Chaves. Kolesarji, ki naj bi spadali med najresnejše kandidate za rdečo majico na prihajajoči dirki po Španiji. Vsi so seveda nekoliko previdni v izjavah. Roglič pa je priznal: "Končati tritedensko dirko na odru je lepo. Ampak to mu je uspelo že na Giru. Zdaj želim tukaj zmagati. Naredil bom vse za zmago."

Ob sebi bo imel kolesarje, kot so Tony Martin, Lennard Hofstede, Neilson Powless, Sepp Kuss, Robert Gesink, George Bennett in Steven Kruijswijk. Nizozemec je bil tretji na dirki po Franciji. Lansko Vuelto pa je končal na četrtem mestu. Pred letošnjo Vuelto je dejal: "Tu sem, da ekipi pomagam do zmage. Seveda bi rad zmagal jaz. Primož pa je tudi eden izmed favoritov in po polovici Vuelte bomo videli, kako bo. Začeli bomo z mislijo, da bomo v igri in bomo lahko taktizirali, saj smo kot ekipa zares močni."

Na uradni spletni strani moštva Jumbo Visma je športni direktor Grischa Niermann poudaril, da so na odru za zmagovalce letos končali že na Giru in Touru: "Na Vuelti imamo velik cilj. To je, da dirko dobimo. Primož je vodja ekipe, nadomestna liderja sta George in Steven. Pomemben bo že uvodni ekipni kronometer, ki bo priskrbel dober izhodiščni položaj. To je prvi cilj."

Finally, a team with the depth, of talent and pockets, to challenge the Grand Tour supremacy of Team Ineos. Perhaps, though there is another possibility. They could turn out to be the new Movistar. For one of the lessons from the Spanish team over the past few years should be that it takes more than simply having the best rider(s) to win a Grand Tour. A singular focus on the ultimate goal is a prerequisite, too. Despite a few differences and difficulties here and there, Team Sky/Ineos have always had that. Do Jumbo Visma? I’m not so sure.It’s not that the emperor has no clothes - four stages and a podium at the Tour de France are not to be sniffed at - but I’m sceptical they’re the fine robes of ermin and silk that everyone else seems to suggest.Take the 2018 Tour de France. It was perhaps too soon for Roglic to win it but a podium was well within his reach. Not that it came down to a single moment but Steven Kruiswijk’s stage-hunting on Alpe d’Huez was not indicative of a team with its eyes on a single prize. Then there’s this year’s Giro d’Italia. It wasn’t bad luck that cost Roglic the overall victory, nor was it that he wasn’t physically capable. Rather it was that he was on his own for most of the race and at crucial moments the team let him down. Sure you can also point to a gradual decline in form over the three weeks, but the margins were small enough that had he had stronger support - specifically better climbers who could have chased Carapaz down - that difference could have been neutralised.  Though he’s definitely got the potential to podium in a three week race, George Bennett is a decent bloke who’ll suck it up and get stuck in; Laurens De Plus is young enough that he’s maybe got a year or two before he starts itching for big race leadership. On the other hand, even while he might have a few years on the others it’s hard to see Kruiswijk settling into a support role. Roglic himself is the lonest of lone wolves. Add Dumoulin to the mix - a good guy, but he didn’t make the move to play second fiddle to anyone - and Jumbo could easily have a Valverde/Quintana/Landa situation on their hands. Maybe they can manage the talent better than Eusebio Unzué has, find space for all of their ambitions and provide opportunities to satisfy every rider. But there are only three Grand Tours a year. It’s not going to be easy.https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?u=dad5b5234f5f13853274f7479&id=3777d46286&e=cbb150f3d9
