Van der Poel to have his pick of 2021 WorldTour events as Alpecin-Fenix earn automatic invitations



Mathieu van der Poel will have his pick of the Grand Tours and Classics in 2021 after his Alpecin-Fenix team earned automatic invitations to all WorldTour events thanks to finishing this season as the best-ranked ProTeam, the UCI announced on Wednesday.

Alpecin-Fenix finished 12th overall in the World Rankings this season, thanks in large part to Van der Poel’s victories in the Tour of Flanders – where he beat Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) in a nail-biting sprint – and stages of Tirreno-Adriatico and the BinckBank Tour.
