I heard Sky still has one spot left to fill their team next year.

Please. Froome is already dangerous enough with his riding style, give him stillnoct and he probably flattens the peloton involuntarily

A calendar with plenty of 300-400 meters uphill sprints. :D

They started posting some videos to their Youtube channel, akin to the backstage pass of Michelton Scott, I quite like them but they seem to need more views.

It's good that they are animating the race a bit instead of the usual duo of Sky versus Movistar.

Not just animating the race. They have won two sprint stages with Groenewegen and they have two riders in the top 10. For me, next to Sky and Quick-step the best team so far this year in the Tour... And of course those two teams have much bigger budget than LottoNL Jumbo.

Now they’ve signed van Aert, they seem to be building up quite the versatile roster.

Apparently they bring in their own mattresses and curtains to the hotels, in giant bags:

Makes tons of sense, so you're used to the stuff and it's almost like having the same bed for the whole gt, improves the quality of your sleep a lot and should help you to recover better.

Thanks for linking to these videos. It's nice that they make them - you get to know riders a little better that you not normally see outside the races.

I especially enjoyed the video of Roglic' Mende stage. His accent is top notch with his constant "Ah" and I loved his little conversation with Kruijswijk after the stage.

Yeah I love them as well, obviously Michelton Scott have set a real standard with the backstage pass, so I really like this backstage view into what happens in the Lotto Jumbo team as well.

Wtf, how did I miss this? Lotto nl suddenly getting a star roster.
All though roglic and groenewegen were risks when taken in they have become absolute top quality riders.
Van Aert is a rider everyone wanted to have so I'm really surprised they managed to get him on the team, if it's true.

They started small budget, but Jumbo is steadily increasing their budget (Lotto is stepping out)

Frans Maassen is sooo blunt.

He said of Grondahl Jansen that 'He's very intelligent, he drastically increases the average intelligence of our team'

Bianchi extended the contract with Jumbo

So the rumours they were going back to Giant are gone

First time Im cheering for this team to do something good since they kicked Rasmussen out 11 years ago. Go Rogla and Steven!

Team is also really different now. Gesink and Mollema were both physically not in the same mindset like Roglic and Kruijswijk.
Kruijswijk also a much more attacking rider and Roglic physically much better. It's a different dynamic

How is one "physically in a mindset"?

A part of my post fell away. I meant both physically and in mindset
