If this season had gone as planned, today would mark the third stage of the Tour de France 2020 and the riders would start from Nice and prepare for the arrival of the sprint in Sisteron after 198 km.

Instead, the race is still on hold and we look forward to the return of the WorldTour competition.

But Zwift offered another innovation to fill the race vacuum this season, by announcing the very first virtual Tour de France with rankings for men and women.

The new online event, which will take place over three weekends in July, will feature star runners including Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas, Egan Bernal, Marianne Vos and Chloé Dygert.

While 23 male and 17 female teams run over six stages, including a virtual recreation of Mont Ventoux and the iconic Champs Élysées in Paris, amateur runners will also be able to get involved thanks to the online participation event The Tour Stage.
