I think my first year on the WorldTour has gone okay. I know that the team is happy with me, and they’ve liked what they’ve seen so far. Unfortunately, I’ve not done a tonne of races. For me personally, it’s definitely been a bit of an awakening. Wha

The final sprint at the 2020 Scheldeprijs was not untypical: a hectic build-up, an illustrious winner in Caleb Ewan, and, as has been the case in this event before, a crash. What was atypical was the reaction of German rider Rüdiger Selig to that cra
