Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) speaks at a pre-race press conference on Wednesday, May 4.  Said Dumoulin: "The Giro is very special this year with the start in the Netherlands. Utrecht last year was amazing, it was like riding through a wall of noise. I couldn't even hear the radio properly and I hope I can get that same feeling again this year."  He added "The general classification won't be my target for this year's edition. I will be focusing primarily on the time trials on stage one and stage nine, as well as the uphill time trial, which should suit me very well. If you want to go for the overall classification in a Grand Tour these days you need specific preparation and have to go to altitude camp."
