Sepp Kuss states that the Vuelta victory changes his life, reinforcing rumors about a change in his role at Jumbo-Visma

Sepp Kuss finally secured the overall victory in the Vuelta a España 2023 this Sunday. After many years of serving others, Sepp Kuss achieved glory for himself, becoming the first American winner since Chris Horner in 2013.

During the interview right after the 21st stage, Kuss stated that this victory changes his life, indicating a potential shift in the hierarchy at Jumbo-Visma. Watch the interview with the joyful American: “This was incredible. I’m especially happy that it’s been done,” said Kuss with a big smile. “I had a feeling the attacks would come fast because they were ready to attack right from the start of the stage. I suffered a lot with it, even more than on the Angliru. But it’s good to finish like this.”

Above all, the final stage to Madrid was a journey of glory for Kuss towards his first Grand Tour victory. Has it changed him? Now that he can officially call himself the ultimate winner? “It’s not different at all,” he says. “I remain myself. It changes my life, but I look back with many wonderful memories. It still takes some time to grasp the magnitude of this. It takes some time.

“Tonight, we’ll first celebrate in a big way. My family and friends are here. It will be very special, including the cyclists and the staff,” said Kuss, who will have a big day filled with honors with the team in the Netherlands on Tuesday, as it happened previously with Primoz Roglic and shortly after with Jonas Vingegaard.
