Brussels (Dispatches) - Julian Alaphilippe has confirmed he will make his debut at the Tour of Flanders in 2020, saying he needs "new challenges”.
Alaphilippe won Milan-San Remo, Strade Bianche, and a second Flèche Wallonne this spring, but has yet to taste the cobbled Classics of northern Belgium.
Having hinted at a debut earlier in the year, Alaphilippe confirmed his plans to race the Tour of Flanders in 2020 while collecting the Velo d’or prize, with the possibility of other races in Flanders in the preceding week as part of a radically different spring programme.
