Rohann Dennis after leaving for Jumbo Visma: "Ineos were copying Jumbo"

Rohan Dennis decided to make a big change and leave the Ineos Grenadiers team for Jumbo Visma He also explained his decision as to why he did it "There's a lot of things that the team is doing really well."

Dennis said, as quoted by cyclingnews "I noticed when I was with Ineos that they were copying Jumbo with a lot of stuff. And I thought: Well, why would I want to be in a team that is copying a team on the other side of the fence? "Why not go join that team and be on the front foot, not the back foot.

So basically I want to move here because technically it is a better team. It looks like a great structure. He is happy with his decision and believes that he can progress in the new team and achieve success "I'm also coming back to semi-where I started, back when I was with Rabobank in 2011.

It's slightly different, that was a Conti team, so a lot different." "But I think it's a nice move and I'm really excited about it. In the sport, there's usually one or two teams that are really pushing to find the one or half a per cent and at the moment the team leading that is Jumbo."

Rohan Dennis and pressure

Rohan Dennis believes there is pressure, but we have no doubt he will know how to deal with it "There's a bit of pressure when you get a label. It's not pressure I don't like, it makes me realise my importance in the team," he said.

"It's not just coming here and having fun. You're here to do a job, you're here to keep performing and that's what I like to do. It's one of those things that I've worked my whole professional career and even before, to get to this point."

"It's always been a goal to be one of the best riders in the world."
It is interesting who Dennis labeled as the biggest enemy next season, and his biggest goal is Tour de France "The big goal for me in the team is to do the Tour de France," he said directly.

"It's a huge race, it is a circus and I really want to be part of a team that is potentially going to win. "I'll try and help the team beat old mate Tadej [Pogačar]. I like him but he is the enemy." Rohan Dennis is obviously happy in the new environment
