Two-time Tour de France winner Jonas Vingegaard decided to move to Switzerland with his family. There, in contrast to his hometown Glyngor in Denmark, he will have more opportunities to train close to home, which will also have a favorable effect on his family life.
“I think the fact that we haven’t traveled as often in recent years as in previous years has had a good effect on us,” said the two-time Tour de France winner Jonas Vingegaard admitted in a conversation with the Danish media. “In the past, we traveled all the time to different locations, now that’s over, which had a good effect on us. We settled down with our family and our life became easier,” said the 26-year-old Danish ace from the Jumbo-Visma team.
Vingegaard is with his wife Trine Marie Hansen and a daughter Frida until recently, he lived in his hometown of Glyngor in Denmark, where, due to the relief, he had no opportunities for training in rugged terrain, so traveling was an integral part of his life.
To put an end to this, he decided to move. Just like his countryman Mads Pedersen chose the Swiss canton of Ticino, where the Vingegaard family will create a new home, while the family is expected to live in France for a certain part of the season. The move will allow him to train better and reduce the number of trips he had to make in previous years.
