Team Jumbo-Visma (Italy) - Press Release: Koen Bouwman has scored an impressive double in the nineteenth stage of the Giro d'Italia. The 28-year-old Dutchman won his second stage and secured the blue mountain jersey. If he arrives safely in Verona on Sunday, he will be the first Dutchman to win the Giro mountain jersey.
After the eighteenth stage, Bouwman announced that he would try to get in the breakaway. He kept his word and joined Edoardo Affini in a sizeable leading group. After the blue jersey wearer had already taken the points on the first two climbs, he was also first on the Kolovrat.
