Laurens De Plus, one of the several new signings at Ineos Grenadiers for 2021, has said that he'll get the chance to take his own opportunities at the team next season as well as working for the numerous big names on the squad.

The Belgian might have been expected to slot into an exclusively domestique role at the British squad, which features four Grand Tour winners in the form of Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz, Geraint Thomas and Tao Geoghegan Hart, as well as several other top tier leaders. However he told Sporza that there will be certain races where he can go for his own results. The Ardennes Classics will be one such set of races.

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.
