The 2020 Tour de France began in Nice, France on Saturday, Aug. 29 and concluded on Sunday, Sept. 20 on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Tadej Pogacar became the youngest winner of the Tour de France since 1904, securing the yellow jersey a day before turning 22.

After the win, Pogacar expressed his excitement to even just be at the iconic race, saying it was the cherry on top to win.

"It's unbelievable - really crazy. Even if I din't win – if I was second or even last – it wouldn't matter, it would be still nice to be here. But this is just the top of the top. I cannot describe this feeling with words," he said.

The race is traditionally 3,470 kilometers, or 2,1576 miles, long and consists of 21 stages. There was one stage per day, except for Sept. 5 and 14. The route for the race included eight mountain-top finishes and one key mountain time trial.

The 107th Tour de France was different than those in years past, due to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. The schedule was moved around due to the COVID-19 outbreak, meaning the Tour de France was the first Grand Tour of the season, following a two-month postponement.
