UAE Team Emirates manager 'Matxin' Joxean Fernández believes that Team Ineos is headed into the 2020 Tour de France as a team that can be beaten. According to a report in Tuttobiciweb, Maxtin felt that the team was less strong this year than in previous seasons where they have won seven of the eight editions of the French Grand Tour.

"This year is probably the year when they are less strong," Matxin told Tuttobiciweb. "As a Spanish proverb says: in the river in flood the fisherman wins. Let's see. I'm not a magician, but it's obvious that with all the statements they're making everyone is trying to carve out their own space. Froome has won four times and asks for respect. Bernal is the last winner and demands respect. Thomas has won and finished second."

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling.

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.
