The revised and rearranged cycling season has seen a number of riders alter their goals for when the sport returns from the COVID-19 shutdown. Deceuninck-QuickStep leader Julian Alaphilippe is among them, with the Frenchman heading to Italy when the season restarts in August.

While not part of his original plans for the 2020 spring calendar, the Frenchman will return to Strade Bianche and Milan-San Remo in August. Alaphilippe won both races in 2019, a season which ended up as the most fruitful of his career so far.
