The 2020 edition of the Tour de France has been presented in Paris and Romain Bardet was at the Palais des Congres.

The 107th edition of La Grande Boucle will have plenty of opportunities for the climbers with a route that will go through all the mountain ranges in France. Bardet was at the presentation and he talked about the parcours of the race at the end of the event.

"Once again the Tour de France has created a very beautiful route," the Frenchman commented. "The number of stages in the mountains will offer us the chance to put on a good show, and I imagine that many riders will want to take part in it.

"This presentation has given me the chance to see what we'll be facing more clearly, and offers new elements to finish drawing the outlines of my 2020 season."

Pierre Latour also talked about the race, where he would want to return in 2020. "It is a nervous route with fairly short stages and a lot of beautiful climbs," the rider said. "Even the flat sections promise to be exposed to the wind.

"I am happy to see that many stages will be held in my region. It's always nice to race at home. The time trial on the Planche des Belles Filles may also suit me well. After having missed the Tour in 2019, I cannot wait to be there."
