Team TotalEnergies rider Chris Lawless is hoping he will get the opportunity to ride a number of Classics with new team-mate and former world champion Peter Sagan this coming year, with the Slovak joining the ProTeam from Bora-Hansgrohe. 

Lawless, who won the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, joined the French-based team at the start of 2020 from Ineos Grenadiers but has only competed in one Classics race, at the 2020 Tour of Flanders. He finished 99th on that occasion, but he is targeting better performances this season, which he hopes will be alongside Sagan.
