Dylan Groenewegen will make his return to racing at the Tour of Hungary in mid-May, five days after the expiry of his nine-month ban for causing the crash which nearly ended Fabio Jakobsen's career at the Tour de Pologne.

The Jumbo-Visma sprinter unveiled his 2021 schedule as part of his team's pre-season media day on Friday. Somewhat surprisingly, his program only contains 14 days of WorldTour racing in the shape of the EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg, BinckBank Tour, and Tour of Guangxi.

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.
