Mark Cavendish to make Le Samyn debut with Deceuninck-QuickStep



After starting his 2021 season in the Clasica de Almeria, Mark Cavendish will rejoin his Deceuninck-QuickStep squad for Le Samyn in Belgium on March 2 along with 2019 winner Florian Sénéchal. Alvaro Hodeg is also due to return in Le Samyn after suffering a crash in Almeria.

The UCI 1.1-ranked race is 205.4km long and begins in Quaregnon, outside Mons in the Walloon region of Belgium. It heads north for an out-and-back loop before turning south to touch the French border, then heads toward Dour, where the peloton will face four laps of a lumpy 26.6km circuit that includes five stretches of cobbles, the last within five kilometres of the uphill finish.
