Jack Haig’s Tour de France came to an abrupt end this year as he crashed on stage 3, shattering his collarbone and hopes for success at the first Grand Tour he was targeting with overall ambitions. 

Nevertheless, the Bahrain Victorious rider is preparing for another shot in 2022 with his morale refreshed as he now knows that he has what it takes to perform over three weeks after his injury rebound landed him in third place overall at the Vuelta a España.
