The Jumbo-Visma men's team created its women's counterpart in 2021, with the recruitment of Marianne Vos, an icon of women's cycling for the past 15 years, as a significant asset. The Dutchwoman, who won two classics in the first year of the team's existence (Amstel Gold Race and Gent-Wevelgem) enabled the yellow and black team to join the World Tour in 2022.
The 35-year-old Marianne Vos has won almost everything, and the prospect of wearing the yellow jersey naturally whets her appetite. The multiple world champion on the road (3), track (2) and cyclo-cross (8) will principally aim for stage wins. She doesn't climb as well as she used to -her Giro victories date back to 2011, 2012 and 2014- but her rivals will also have to be wary of her for the general classification because you never know with Vos. American Coryn Labecki (ex-Rivera) will be a rider to keep an eye on in the sprint finishes.

2. Marianne Vos was still without a win at the beginning of the summer, a rarity for the Dutch rider. Second in Gent-Wevelgem, she was unlucky this spring when she contracted covid on the morning of Paris-Roubaix Femmes. She nevertheless found her way back to success in the Giro with two stage wins.
4. The number of Jumbo-Visma riders in the top 50 in the UCI ranking on 5 July: Marianne Vos (11th), Coryn Labecki (28th), Dutch champion Riejanne Markus (39th) and British rider Anna Henderson (43rd). Jumbo-Visma is a strong squad that does not rest exclusively on Vos' shoulders.
