Tour de France 2020 route presentation - Gallery

Cycling's stars shone brightly Tuesday morning in Paris for the 2020 Tour de France route presentation, where race director Christian Prudhomme unveiled an unconventional and mountainous route for next year's Grand Boucle.

Four-time Tour winner Chris Froome joined Team Ineos teammate and 2019 Tour winner Egan Bernal for the festivities, along with general classification rivals Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale), Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ), Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma).

Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates) and Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) represented the sprinters, although 2020 may prove to be a fairly unfriendly route for the fastmen.
