Bob Jungels (AG2R Citroën Team) will switch his focus to week-long stage races and the Ardennes Classics this year as he takes on a more focused race calendar after admitting that in the past he had stretched himself to thin and across too many race formats.

Jungels moved to AG2R Citroën Team after five years at QuickStep and gained success at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, and sixth overall in the Giro d’Italia.
