Sonny Colbrelli and Matej Mohorič have agreed new multi-year contracts with Bahrain Victorious and so will form the leadership of the team in 2022 and 2023 alongside Grand Tour rider Damiano Caruso and Classics rider Dylan Teuns. 

31-year-old Colbelli enjoyed a superb 2021 season, winning the rain-soaked Paris-Roubaix, the road race title at the European Championships, the Benelux Tour and the Italian national title. Always a consistent sprinter, Colbrelli cited the help of a mental coach and further weight loss as the key to his 2021 success.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
