The 2020 Tour de France ran from Saturday, August 29 after being postponed earlier this year. Here, you can find the full route for 2020’s Tour, with the courses, distances and stage types.
The Tour de France, first run in 1903, is known as the biggest race in world cycling and is one of the three grand tours, alongside the Vuelta a Espana and Giro d’Italia. The grand tours are the only races allowed to go for three week’s duration and are the most prestigious tours on the calendar.
The 2020 Tour de France was won by Slovenia’s Tadej Pogacar, who also took out the Mountains and Youth classifications. Fellow Slovenian Primoz Roglic finished second, while Australia’s Richie Porte finished third. Ireland’s Sam Bennett took out the points classification and Marc Hirschi of Switzerland won the Combativity classification.
Cadel Evans’ victory in 2011 is the only time an Australian has been named the Tour de France’s general classification winner. Australia has won the points classification five times, however, with Robbie McEwen doing so three times.
