Trek-Segafredo have reiterated that Richie Porte and Bauke Mollema will remain focused on this season's rescheduled Tour de France (August 29-September 20). Monaco-based Porte is now able to train outside once more, and says that "the fire is burning" in readiness for the Tour.

As previously reported, 2020 Trek-Segafredo signing Vincenzo Nibali will remain targeted on winning the Giro d'Italia for the third time in his career, while Porte and Mollema will be co-leaders at the Tour, at which they finished 11th and 28th, respectively, in 2019.

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.
