The Slovenian is set to wear the bib number "1" of the race at the start line of the 2020 edition of the Spanish grand tour, which will take off on the 20th of October in Irun. His Dutch team will have a very strong roster as he will share the lead with Tom Dumoulin, and they will have the support of Robert Gesink, George Bennett and Sepp Kuss.
