Bahrain McLaren's Dylan Teuns will restart his season at Strade Bianche on August 1 ahead of assuming a support role for Mikel Landa at the Tour de France and targeting the rainbow jersey for Belgium at the World Championships road race at the end of September.

"My role will be slightly different compared to last year. The team has big ambitions for the Tour with Mikel Landa and Wout Poels, so I will have to ride more in their service," Teuns said on Monday, ready to play a more defined role when the race starts in Nice on August 29, without the level of freedom he enjoyed in 2019, when he rode to victory on the stage to La Planche des Belles Filles.
