Speed Interview with La Vuelta rider: Steven Kruijswijk

La Vuelta has started! Vifit Sport sat down with the cyclists from our partner, team Jumbo Visma, that will take the challenge in Spain. In this series of speed interviews, you will get to know the riders a little bit better. Today we sat down with Steven Kruijswijk.

You got great results in de the Tour de France – Do you think it was better than your Giro of 2016?

As it is not your main goal this year, what are your expectations from La Vuelta?

"It is a bit of a wait and see how far I can go for the general classification. I felt really good in the Tour and I will try to take that with me for La Vuelta."

"Win a bunch sprint."

What is your favorite tour to ride?

"Giro, for its beauty."

Where is your favorite place to train?
