Team of the Year


Team Jumbo-Visma dominated professional cycling this year, pulling off a men's Grand Tour hat trick and impressing at La Vuelta Femenina with three stage wins. They racked up a mind-blowing 70 victories in well as Strava's Team of the Year crown.

Dutch-based team Jumbo-Visma owned the pro cycling scene in 2023, bagging a staggering 70 victories, including Primož Roglič's win at the Giro d’Italia, Jonas Vingegaard at the Tour de France,Sepp Kuss at La Vuelta a España, and Marianne Vos dominating La Vuelta Femenina.

The team’s sporting director Merijn Zeeman’s summed it up when he said: “This is by far the best season this team has ever had. We have made cycling history by winning three Grand Tours in one year. And now, after the week in China, we have reached 70 victories." 

Team Jumbo-Visma stood out in both quantity and quality. Besides the three Grand Tours, the team also conquered the general classification in WorldTour races like Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour of Catalonia, Tour of the Basque Country, Critérium du Dauphiné, and the Tour of Guangxi. They even triumphed in one-day races like Christophe Laporte’s trio of successes at the European Championships, Gent-Wevelgem and Dwars door Vlaanderen, Wout van Aert’s win at E3 Saxo Classic, and Dylan van Baarle’s glory at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

And the women’s team? They nailed 2023 too with nine wins, including Marianne Vos’ impressive win on Stage 3 of the inaugural edition of the La Vuelta Femenina in Guadalajara. She also claimed the red jersey during stage 4, while her teammate Anna Henderson won the first stage of the race.

As they evolve into Visma-Lease a Bike for 2024, losing Primož Roglič to Bora-Hansgrohe but gaining a fresh look and name, can this team keep the magic alive? One thing's for sure, their dominant 2023 season – ranking as number 1 for the men and number 8 for the women’s World Tour teams – will be etched in history. Jumbo-Visma's 2023 performance stands as their finest hour (so far).
