It was hardly a surprise to read last week's news of Bauke Mollema extending terms with Trek-Segafredo. The Dutchman has been the team's most consistent and reliable winner for several seasons, and with the resumption of racing on the horizon, the American squad was keen on tying down the 33-year-old for a further two seasons.

Mollema will race an action-packed few months from August, with the Tour de l'Ain first on his schedule before the Tour de France later that month. He may indulge himself with the defence of his Il Lombardia crown, but that's yet to be finalised as Trek-Segafredo plot their return to racing and the necessary training camp that will take place in July.
