The reigning road race world champion, Mads Pedersen, is likely to ride the rescheduled Tour de France from August 29-September 20 before turning his attention to the postponed spring Classics, of which the bulk are this season set to take place in October due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now in his fourth year with Trek-Segafredo, Pedersen has so far had relatively few opportunities to show off his rainbow jersey, although he did ride the Tour de l'Eurométropole, the Tre Valli Varesine and Milano-Torino at the end of last season.

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.
