Tom Dumoulin is struggling with back problems: ‘It’s not going great’ | cycling

The Dutchman is dealing with physical problems, although he had already put the general classification out of his mind. “Honestly, I don’t feel any better. I have some back problems, so it’s not going great.” The Limburger is therefore 33rd at 19 minutes from the pink jersey.

Dumoulin got through Wednesday’s sprint stage well, he indicated. ,,It was a quiet day, a day to get through well. We don’t have a sprinter and no real rider for the standings anymore, so we didn’t have to do much.”

On Thursday the peloton will pass Passo del Bocco, the descent where Wouter Weylandt lost his life in 2011. It is the first time since the fatal accident that the riders will pass here again with the race. ,,I didn’t cycle with him, I was sitting in front of the TV when it happened. That was terrible to see,” said Dumoulin.
