Paris-Nice 2020 – Stage 7 – Near Live

Defending Tour de France champion Egan Bernal leads an ambitious Columbian contingent with Nairo Quintana and Sergio Higuita as serious rivals, but Primož Roglič, who won the Vuelta, and his young countryman Tadej Pogacar also have a shot of adding Slovenia to the list of winning nations on Paris-Nice. On this particularly competitive 78th edition, 2019 Vélo d’Or winner Julian Alaphilippe will be hosting his rivals before his local fans at Saint-Amand-Montrond for the first major battle of the week where other French riders could also show their strength: Thibaut Pinot and Pierre Latour have the potential to aim for the sharp end of the order. Caleb Ewan leads an impressive list of sprinters that includes Sam Bennett, Pascal Ackermann and Matteo Trentin.
