It’s only March of the 2021 road season and already young American Matteo Jorgenson is matching the number of stage races that were part of his entire freshman campaign of last year with Movistar. The 21-year-old will line up at his first Paris-Nice on Sunday, March 7, which by the end of the eight days of racing will make it a homecoming on the familiar roads of his base in Europe.

“A few days ago I rode stage 7 of Paris-Nice. I know all the roads of stage 8. It’s really exciting,” Jorgenson, who is based in Nice, told Cyclingnews.
