“I can’t quite realize it yet and it will take some time,” said the 29-year-old, who celebrated his first Grand Tour title. In recent years, Kos has often been a stalwart for the Jumbo-Visma team and supported Denmark’s Jonas Winggaard and Slovenia’s Primoz Roglic in their Tour victories.
“I’m usually on the other side. I’m often on winning teams, but to be the one wearing the jersey is unbelievable. So yeah, I’m still living a dream,” said Kos, who won the Tour. -de- France winner Vingegard and three-time Vuelta winner Roglic were left behind this time.
“We made history and took all three podium places,” said Vingegaard, trying to defuse criticism of the Jumbo-Visma team’s driving style in the meantime: “We are of course very happy and proud of the way this year has gone. “I think we can call it a historic season for our team.”
In the final week of the Tour, Roglic and Vengegaard attacked their teammate Kos, who was leading, sparking controversy. But in the final difficult stage on Saturday, they led their teammate to the finish line without taking any action. After the triumphant trip to Madrid, the three professionals celebrated together on the podium with champagne.
