Jakob Fuglsang will be at the start again in Tour of Flanders this season, six years after his first participation.
Fuglsang, now 36, started the Tour of Flanders in 2016 and finished it with a 25th place, just over one minute from winner Peter Sagan.
This year, Fuglsang will therefore once again be tackling the Flemish cobblestones for his new team Israel-Premier Tech.
“I want to get off the starting blocks right away. I didn’t have the best season of my career last year, but I want to show that it was just a one-off”, said the Danish rider.
“I want to show that I still have it in me, that I am still capable of winning games.”
Fuglsang will focus on Strade Bianche in the spring and hopes to shine in the Ardennes classics after the Tour of Flanders.
