Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), winner of three stages at the 2019 Tour de France, including the final stage on the Champs Elysees in Paris, told Cyclingnews after the official route unveiling today that chances for the sprinters will be limited next year.

"The course looks very tough, but we need to look at all the profiles of all the stages to really see, but at the moment it looks like maybe only three of four sprint chances," he told Cyclingnews' Stephen Farrand after race director Christian Prudhomme unveiled the 2020 parcours in Paris.
