Tour de France champion Jonas Vingegaard is returning from a two-month hiatus from the Tour of Croatia this week, his Jumbo-Visma team announced on Monday.

Dane Wingegaard took his first Grand Tour triumph in July, ahead of two-time defending champion Tadej Pogacar of Slovenia and Britain’s Geraint Thomas.

The 25-year-old has not raced since his win at the Champs-Elysées on July 24, missing the Tour of Denmark on home soil and the World Championships in Wollongong, Australia.

Last month, Jumbo-Visma sporting director Frans Maassen spoke of the “hard times” Vingegaard has gone through since winning the Tour.

“I understand that the fans want to see Jonas,” Maassen said. “But after the tour, he had a very rough time.”

His main rival in Croatia will be Ineos Grenadiers’ Tomas, who was not selected by Great Britain to play in the World Cup.
