After winning Milan-San Remo and taking a career-best fourth-place finished at the Tour of Flanders and his hometown World Championships, Jasper Stuyven has said that he can head into the 2022 season with a more relaxed attitude and added confidence.

The Belgian said at the start of 2021 that every year he is asked when he will finally get his 'first big win', despite having the likes of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, and a stage of the Vuelta a España on his palmarès.
