Thomas De Gendt reveals plans for 2020 Tour de France breakaway victory


Thomas De Gendt has said he will try to appease fans by winning another Tour de France stage in the 2020 edition, following his sensational solo victory in last year’s race.

“I will try to win a stage of this Tour, but it is not easy to win a stage, but I will do my best,” said the Belgian after the third stage.

The plan before the Grand Départ in Nice was not to put all the pressure of the escaped success on De Gendt, but to have lost Tim Wellens before the start of the race as well as Philippe Gilbert and John Degenkolb after the first day, responsibility on the shoulders of De Gendt.

“There were three guys who were going to participate in the breakaway as well, Tim and Phil in particular. It was two guys who were going to be in the breakaway, so it wasn’t just for me to take part in the breakaway.
