Danish champion Kasper Asgreen has mapped out his 2021 season plans, with a return to the Tour de France high in his thoughts along with more spring Classics success and, hopefully, a berth at the Tokyo Olympics.

The 25-year-old, currently training with his Deceuninck-QuickStep team in Spain, said that the cobbles will be his first aim this year, hopefully replicating his 2019 Tour of Flanders runner-up spot and 2020 Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne victory.
