Sepp Kuss is putting aside personal glory to help bring Jumbo-Visma a Tour de France win with one of its three big stars.

The American, who helped Primoz Roglic win the Vuelta a España and took stage 15 victory for himself, will line up for the 2020 Tour with leaders Roglic, Tom Dumoulin, and Steven Kruijswijk.

"It's a big job," Kuss told FloBikes of his Tour role.

"It's really the same amount of pressure as any other race, but you have the knowledge of what's possible when you're working for all those those big names. It's really motivating and you want to really rise to the occasion to be there for them."

Dumoulin and Kruijswijk have both finished second in the Tour already. Dumoulin, who won the 2017 Giro, joined the team over the winter

25-year-old Kuss, from Durango, Colorado, kicks his 2020 season at the Tour de la Provence in France this Thursday. After he worked for Roglic's Vuelta and won a mountain stage solo last summer, the team named him in its Tour squad.

"The Vuelta stage win was really big. It maybe took a while to sink in just because we were so focused every day on getting the the overall win with Primoz," Kuss added. "Now that I look back on it, it gave me tons of motivation, knowing what's possible. Knowing that you can be in that position, gives you tons of confidence."

With Egan Bernal winning the Tour at 22, and riders like Remco Evenepoel and Mathieu van der Poel dominating the sport at such a young age, anything seems possible for Kuss.

"Winning the Tour in 2020? Maybe, you never know! I think you always have to shoot for something and I think everybody would want to win something like that," said Kuss.

"But for me at this point, it's pretty special to be part of a team that's winning because not everybody can say that they've won a Grand Tour with with a rider. And to do that already in the Vuelta is pretty cool. And yeah, hopefully we can do it again this year."
