AG2R La Mondiale's Axel Domont – one of team leader Romain Bardet's key lieutenants at the Tour de France in recent years – is determined to ensure that he hits the ground running when the 2020 season restarts in earnest in August, fighting to return to his best after suffering yet another injury setback after crashing at the Race Torquay in Australia at the end of January.

Domont rode in Bardet's service at both the 2017 and 2018 Tours de France, but crashed out of the latter with a broken collarbone on stage 4. He was then unable to ride the Tour last year due to breaking both his hip and collarbone at the Volta a Catalunya in March 2019, and the Frenchman already knows that he's not set to ride this year's Tour.

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.
