Tom Dumoulin has explained his reasons to choose the 2018 Giro d'Italia over the Tour de France, during the presentation of Team Sunweb in Berlin, Germany.

The Dutchman will be back in 2018 to defend his title, the first one for his country in the Italian Grand Tour. "The course of the Giro seems to suit me more than the one of the Tour," said the rider.

"In the Tour, it seems harder and more difficult to achieve the final victory. In years before I had already fallen in love with the Giro and after last year's victory even more. I like the supporters, the region and the atmosphere."

It is still not clear if Dumoulin will also ride the Tour de France. "That will depend on the Giro and the feelings after that," he explained.

The Italian Grand Tour will start in Israel on the 4th of May and finishes in Rome on the 27th.
