Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal have been confirmed as Team Ineos' co-leaders of the 2020 Tour de France. Team Ineos boss Dave Brailsford outlined a preliminary race programme that highlighted the team's Grand Tours leaders in a video posted on the team's social media account on Thursday.

"You pencil in your plans at this time of year, but you always know that things can change in the sport," Brailsford said. "As it stands at this moment in time, we are looking at Richard [Carapaz] going to race the Giro and try and retain his title there, and then for Geraint [Thomas] and Egan [Bernal] to take on the challenge of, and focus on, the Tour."
