With the approaching Grand Départ of the Tour de France, Utrecht is becoming more and more excited. With only a few days remaining, cyclist Tom Dumoulin seems to be the fan favourite. T-shirts with prints such as “Tom under the Dom” are already being sold.The Utrechters hope that Tom Dumoulin can grab the ‘Maillot Jaune’ in the first course, which will be a time trial. Dumoulin is considered a specialist in this kind of cycling and the Dutch have their hopes up that he will win the first course. If he manages to win the yellow jersey, Dumoulin will be the First Dutchman since 1989 to do so.
Next Friday, 19 June, the yellow jersey will arrive in Utrecht and will be exposed in the Catharijne convent museum for two weeks.
