In his third season as a professional, and his second at Team Sunweb, Casper Pedersen had something of a breakthrough year in 2020. The 24-year-old Dane won his first major race at Paris-Tours, as well as shining as part of Cees Bol's lead-out train on his Tour de France debut. 

The season ended on a sour note, as he crashed out of Scheldeprijs and was robbed of a Tour of Flanders appearance but he was able to reflect on a great campaign and set his sights on bigger and better things as one of the riders to watch in 2021.
