Vingegaard: from “fisherman” to winner of the Tour de France

The one who dared to beat Tadej Pogacar. Ok, it's not MTB but these stories always have a great charm: here is the story of the Danish Jonas Vingegaard.

Jonas Vingegaard Tour de France

This boy pictured is Jonas Vingegaard, the winner of the 2022 Tour de France, when he worked part-time at the fish market as a rocket.

Jonas Vingegaard Rasmussen (Hillerslev, 10 December 1996) is a Danish road cyclist who currently rides for the Jumbo-Visma team. The personal story of him, even if perhaps romanticized, remains incredible for the determination that he has put into every choice of him.

Jonas started racing as a child with good results in the youth categories, then moving from Under 23 to a continental team. At that time, however, he worked part-time in the fish market. The times were typical: he wakes up at 5 in the morning and goes away until 13.

A sacrifice that could appear human for a worker who can then relax on the sofa at home, but for Jonas his life began in the afternoon: he ate quickly and off with his bike training. In the team his nickname was "the fisherman".

After setting a record time on the Coll de Rates climb during a retreat in Spain with his former team ColoQuick, he joined Jumbo-Visma in 2019 and started his exponential growth there, being able to dedicate himself 100% to cycling . 

Today Jonas won the Tour de France 2022, the most important stage race in the world, beating an athlete who for many was unbeatable, namely Tadej Pogacar.

In this modern society, it's always good to dream.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
