Lorena Wiebes (Sunweb) won Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne Women 2020 after Jolien D'hoore (Boels Dolmans), who crossed the line first, was relegated for irregular sprinting. Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) moved up to second place, with Lotte Kopecky (Lotto Soudal) rounding out the podium.

The Women's WorldTour Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne was initially to be held on March 26, but will now take place on October 20 as part of the revised late-season calendar. 

The UCI announced the revised-late season calendar in May, and although there have been some cancellations since then, the Women's WorldTour has retained 12 of the original 22 events.

The women’s peloton has traditionally raced a 134km route that begins in Bruges and finishes in De Panne. This year, however, the organisers increased the distance to 159km. 

The women's race began in Bruges and race 48 kilometres, passing through Leeuw, Koekelare and Schoorbakke, and then entered the final circuits in De Panne where they passed through the finish line for the first time. The peloton contested two laps of the circuit and then De Panne in a sprint won by Wiebes.
