Advantage to climbers as 2020 Tour de France route revealed

Tour de France organisers put a spring in the step of the climbers after unveiling the route for the 2020 race featuring a first mountain stage on the second day and only one time trial on the eve of the final parade on the Champs Elysees. The race could be decided on the penultimate stage in the 36km solo effort against the clock ending up the Planche des Belles Filles, home to fan favourite Thibaut Pinot, who was in position to win this year’s race with two days to go but had to pull out injured. Pinot will be back on the Tour next year and the super hilly route will favour him as well as defending champion Egan Bernal of Colombia. He will face internal competition within Team Ineos as four-time champion Chris Froome returns after missing this year’s event through injury.
