British rider Jake Stewart is set to turn pro with Groupama-FDJ in 2021, with the team announcing his move up from their Continental development squad after a series of impressive rides this season.

A newly-introduced UCI rule has enabled Stewart to race with the WorldTour squad at ProSeries races this season, the first rider from the development squad to do so. He made his debut at the Volta ao Algarve in February, also taking part in Le Samyn, the Mont Ventoux Dénivelé Challenge and the Tour de l'Ain as part of the senior squad.

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.
