The Chrono des Nations was the last competition for Bigla in 2020 and it finished with the victory of Leah Thomas.

The time trial took place over a 26-kilometre long course in Les Herbiers under rainy conditions. The Pan American champion Leah Thomas completed the circuit in 36 minutes and four seconds, being 41 seconds faster than Vita Heine (Hitec Products) and 55 seconds faster than her teammate Emma Cecilie Norsgaard.

"I think this was a good parcours, one for the pure time trial specialists," Thomas explained. "It wasn’t necessarily easy with the bad weather conditions today, and I crashed at the first big roundabout. However, I was able to get back on the bike and was determined not to give up, despite this setback. At the World Championships in Yorkshire, I was injured, and also disappointed that I wasn’t able to produce my best result.

"So I wanted to do particularly well here and end my season on a high note. Even after crashing, I persisted and the result is a testament to staying focused and putting your best foot forward despite the circumstances. I also want to thank Bigla for all the support during the year, and I’m happy to be able to reward that with the win today."
