Jakob Fuglsang targets Ardennes Classics and Tokyo Gold

Turning Rio´s Silver into Tokyo´s Gold will be the main goal for Astana – Premier Tech’s Jakob Fuglsang this season. The Danish rider will start his 2021 season, like in previous years, with the  Ruta del Sol stage race, aiming to make it a hat-trick before turning his attention to the Tour of Flanders and Pais Vasco as preparation for his first goal of the season, the Ardennes Classics. At the one-day race and Monument the Danish rider will aim to achieve another great result.
During his second part of the season, after Tour de Suisse comes the start line of the 108th Tour de France in Brest. The overall general classification will not be the priority as he will ride the Grand Tour as preparation for the Olympic Games in Tokyo afterwards.

The main goal for the season is the Olympic Games. The Danish rider will give his everything to change his Silver medal from Rio into Gold in Tokyo.

My first highlight of the season will be the Ardennes Classics, with the Italian spring races as preparation. After that, alongside an altitude camp, I will take on the Tour de France to prepare for the Olympic Games, where I hope to change Rio’s Silver into Tokyo’s Gold medal. Of course, it will be great to collect at least one stage win at the Tour de France, but my main focus will be the Olympic Road Race. I am happy with my calendar and think the Tour route, like the parcours in Tokyo, suits me to achieve something great.
