The playfully dramatic bow he took on the podium in the shadow of the great cathedral marked a satisfying conclusion to the young Swiss’ 2021 season, his first with Bahrain Victorious and one which could be easily read as his coming of age.
Bahrain Victorious have announced contract extensions for Damiano Caruso and Gino Mäder as the team continues to confirm its roster for 2022 and beyond. In the last two weeks Bahrain Victorious has extended the contracts of Paris-Roubaix winner Sonny Colbrelli, Matej Mohoric, Mikel Landa, Britain’s Fred Wright and others, while also letting go Wout Poels, Scott Davies and Marco Haller.

Gino Mader won stage six of the Giro d’Italia as Egan Bernal and Dan Martin took a step forward in the battle for pink. Mader took the win for Bahrain-Victorious out of the breakaway, handing a huge morale boost to the team after their leader Mikel Landa crashed out 24 hours earlier.
Gino Mader took stage six of the Giro d’Italia 2021 holding off a group of four of the big favourites led by Egan Bernal, with Attila Valter going into the pink jersey. Mader (Bahrain Victorious) attacked the day's main breakaway with 3km to go before soloing to the finish to get his first professional win ahead of Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) in second with Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation), Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) and Giulio Ciccone (Trek-Segafredo) taking the the next respective placings.

Many fans were heartbroken watching Gino Mäder get caught in the final few metres of stage seven at Paris-Nice, Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) surging past to take his third stage of the race as he closes in on the overall victory, but it likely pales in comparison with how the 24-year-old Swiss and his Bahrain-Victorious team were feeling.
At the finish of Paris-Nice's penultimate stage Gino Mäder passed the 50 metres-to-go marker at the top of Valdeblore La Colmiane and decided to take a final look over his shoulder before sitting up and celebrating his first victory as a WorldTour pro. Just before he could do so, his vision flashed yellow, and by the time his focus was back on the finish line, there was another figure punching the air.
