Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) will re-start his 2020 road season with another bid for the podium in Strade Bianche on August 1, according to Sporza.

The 25-year-old made his first splash in top-tier one-day road racing at the Italian race in 2018, taking third behind Tiesj Benoot and Romain Bardet in Siena in only his second outing with Jumbo-Visma. In 2019, Van Aert rounded out the podium behind Julian Alaphilippe and Jakob Fuglsang.

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.
