Alpecin-Fenix to ride all three Grand Tours in 2021

Alpecin-Fenix to ride all three Grand Tours in 2021



The competition for wildcard slots at the Grand Tours has become more intense in 2021 after Alpecin-Fenix owner Christoph Roodhooft confirmed to Wielerflits that the squad will take up their berth in the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. Alpecin-Fenix earned the right to compete in this year’s Grand Tours after winning the 2020 Europe Tour.

2019 Europe Tour winners Total Direct Energie took up their Tour and Vuelta places but declined their automatic invitation to the Giro, which allowed organiser RCS Sport to assign three wildcard spots.
