French WorldTour team Groupama-FDJ will this week conduct three very different, separate training camps in the French Alps for their riders, in order to best prepare them for the restart to the 2020 season later this month. As the team explains, its riders have been sorted into three distinct groups at three distinct locations, dependent loosely on their season goals, dividing them into Tour de France candidates, sprinters and those riders taking on the one-day WorldTour races in early August.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
