Wout Poels and Jack Haig outlined their program and goals for 2021, setting broadly similar goals for the new season. This will be Poels’ second year at Bahrain Victorious and Haig’s debut in the team, which he joins after five years at Mitchelton-Scott.

Both men aim to compete in the Tokyo Olympics in August – if that happens – with the Ardennes Classics as a key part of the selection process along the way.
