2020 French Road Cycling Cup

The 2020 French Road Cycling Cup was the 29th edition of the French Road Cycling Cup. Compared to the previous season, the same 15 events were held. The cup was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in France, as originally 16 races were scheduled, but only 8 were eventually held, including some replacement events. [1] · [2] The defending champion from the previous season was Marc Sarreau, he was succeeded by Nacer Bouhanni who managed to win two events.

Events edit

The calendar was heavily disturbed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To obtain a reasonable number of events, replacement races were included in the calendar, such as the 1st stage of the Route d'Occitanie and the 4th stage of the Tour Poitou-Charentes en Nouvelle-Aquitaine. A notable race added was also the sprinters' classic Paris–Tours.
