Jonas Vingegaard Rasmussen is a Danish professional cyclist who competes for UCI WorldTeam Team Jumbo–Visma. He first garnered attention in the cycling world with his Grand Tour debut at the 2020 Vuelta a España, followed by a remarkable second-place finish in his first Tour de France in 2021. Vingegaard’s career reached new heights in 2022 when he won the Tour de France, becoming the second Danish cyclist ever to win the prestigious race.
Vingegaard’s journey in professional cycling began with Danish UCI Continental team ColoQuick–Cult, where he showed early promise. His breakthrough came in 2019 after joining Team Jumbo–Visma, where he achieved his first UCI WorldTour win in stage 6 of the Tour de Pologne. In 2020, he finished eighth in the Tour de Pologne and completed his first Grand Tour, the Vuelta a España, as a domestique for Primož Roglič. His performance in the 2021 Tour de France, where he finished second overall, solidified his status as a top-tier general classification contender.
Vingegaard’s career is marked by significant achievements and collaborations. In 2021, he was named as a replacement for Tom Dumoulin in Team Jumbo–Visma’s Tour de France squad, where he originally rode as a domestique for Primož Roglič. After Roglič’s withdrawal due to injury, Vingegaard emerged as the team’s lead contender. His victory in the 2022 Tour de France, where he also claimed the polka dot jersey, was a testament to his all-around capabilities and strategic teamwork.
Vingegaard’s accolades include winning the 2022 Tour de France and setting a record for the highest average speed throughout the entire race. In 2023, he achieved his second successive Tour de France general classification victory. His rise from a relatively unknown rider to a Tour de France champion highlights his remarkable talent and determination in the world of professional cycling.
