“Dumoulin did a good job”
“It’s a shame that Tom is coming home. Every day we watched her fatigue and it kept increasing. Despite this, he played an important role in the team and did a good job. Although his short participation in the Vuelta was a good investment for 2021, we now see that we are encountering limits and we take the responsibility that goes with it, ”said Merijn Zeeman, the team’s sporting director, who still has some nice names to surround Roglic.
Unfortunately @KennyElissonde won’t start today’s stage 8 @lavuelta due to gastroenteritis.
We’ll miss our French climber dearly and wish him a swift and full recovery 🙏# LaVuelta20 pic.twitter.com/eBApMC5Dii

Finally, while Matteo Moschetti was out of schedule on Tuesday, Trek-Segafredo also saw Kenny Elissonde hurriedly leave the Vuelta. After his beautiful 9th place during the 7th stage, the French rider had to give up because of gastroenteritis.
