Earlier this year, Alexander Kristoff learned he would not be on UAE Team Emirates' squad for the Tour de France and said the 2019 edition might have been his last. But his Tour dreams have been given new life as the coronavirus-shortened 2020 road season created unprecedented overlaps with the Classics.

According to Norwegian TV2, Kristoff has revised his plan to race the Giro d'Italia because it overlaps with the major Classics and will race the Tour de France on August 29 - September 20.

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.
