Deceuninck-QuickStep's third-year professional Fabio Jakobsen enjoyed a strong start to the season, taking three sprint victories before the COVID-19 lockdown postponed racing from mid-March onwards, and he will look to the same goals when the season restarts at the end of the month.

The 23-year-old is currently with his teammates in the Dolomites preparing for a return to racing in August, having already taken part in a practice race, the GP Vermarc Sport earlier this month.

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.
