Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) won the Swiss road race championship for the first time in his career on a hilly circuit in Märwil on Saturday, October 31. The championships were rescheduled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Küng won the Swiss time trial title for the third time in Belp in July before taking the European title in the time trial in Plouay in August and the bronze medal at the UCI Road World Championship time trial in September.

The 26-year-old soloed to the victory in the 175.1km championship race by almost five minutes over Danilo Wyss (NTT Pro Cycling) and Simon Pellaud (Androni Giocattoli).

Elise Chabbey of the now-defunct Equipe Paulé Ka squad, beat Linda Indergand and Lara Krähemann to take the road title in the 82.4km elite women's race.
