Once the most dominant organisation in the women's peloton, the Canyon-SRAM team had, at least on paper, the most sluggish season of their 16-year history in 2020, with just one stage of the Herald Sun Tour in their UCI race win column. The results hardly reflect the strength of the team, however, and Kasia Niewiadoma's fine second place overall in the Giro Rosa, with a pair of stage podium finishes, helped to keep the team in the top 10 of the world rankings.

There were far fewer of the races that suit Canyon-SRAM in 2020 - with most of the stage races on the calendar cancelled because of the coronavirus - but there were a few bright moments for the team last season and with a few important transfers, likely more to come this year.
