2021 is Bauke Mollema’s 14th season in the professional peloton, and the Dutchman marked it with his second stage win at the Tour de France. In an exclusive interview with Procycling, the Trek-Segafredo rider speaks about winning from breakaways, as well as balancing his career objectives between those break days, general classification racing and targeting one-day classics. 

Despite being an understated figure in the sport, Mollema has won a monument, Il Lombardia, three Grand Tour stages, and has finished in the top 10 of a Grand Tour six times. It is the range of his performances that impress, from third at the 2011 Vuelta to winning Clásica San Sebastián in 2016.
