Amateur careerEdit

Dumoulin rode as an amateur for the TCCT[3] (Tonic cyclo club of Ternay). He won the national youth championship in 1996, then the espoir (young professional) Paris–Tours and Paris-Auxerre in 2001.

He dropped out of the 2004 Tour de France when he crashed after hitting a dog. Recovery took him four months and he did not race for the rest of the season. In 2008 he won the third stage after a breakaway of nearly 200 km, beating William Frischkorn and Romain Feillu.
