Pogacar won the 15th race, Bernal was difficult to defend the final yellow shirt. In the 16th race, Kamna won the race.

Tadej Pogacar won the Tour de France 2020 bike race, but it was here that defending champion Egan Bernal almost turned off his hopes for the final yellow shirt. Previously, Tadej Pogacar also made an excellent breakthrough in the 13th and 14th race of the Tour de France.

Again, the Slovenian races dominate the Tour de France 2020 race. Parallel to that, Colombian defending champion Egan Bernal almost had all hopes for the final yellow shirt.

Egan Bernal’s hope was no longer because it took him about 7 minutes 20 seconds because the crowd abandoned 13 km in front of his destination, after passing a 17.4 km journey in the Col du Grand Colombier mountain.

His fellow Tour de France runner-up, Nairo Quintana, also lost contact with the top team led by Roglic’s teammates in Jumbo-Visma.

The defending champion Egan Bernal almost no longer has the opportunity to compete for the final yellow shirt. However, Pogacar has proven that he is the most prolific racer when he rushes past his compatriot Roglic at the end of the 174.5-long roadway through the Jurassic mountains.

Kamna won the 16th race. German racer Lennar Kamna finishes 16 of the Tour de France 2020 bicycle race from La Tour-Du-Pin to Villard-De-Lans.

German rider Lennar Kamna won the 164-kilometer-long Tour de France 2020 leg from La Tour-Du-Pin to Villard-De-Lans. The second was Richard Carapaz from Ecuador, followed by Sebastien Reichenbach of Switzerland.

Happy to let the group of 23 riders rise first, the main group gathered the top candidates for the final yellow shirt after 17 minutes, so Roglic and fellow countryman Tadej Pogacar still maintained a distance of 40 seconds.

The remaining top positions were also unchanged. Rigoberto Uran ranked third, followed by Miguel Angel Lopez of Colombia and then Adam Yates of England. The defending champion Egan Bernal had almost no hope of the yellow shirt due to falling behind.

In the green shirt battle, neither Sam Bennett nor Peter Sagan actively attacked early, so Bennett still had 45 points more than the racer three times the World Championship.

Tour de France rescheduled to August because of Covid-19 pandemic

Tour de France, the world’s leading road bike race, has been rescheduled to August this year, due to the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic. The original schedule of the Grand Tour on French soil this year was from June 27 until July 19. Meanwhile, the reorganized schedule will take place from August 29 until September 20 this year.

The reschedule of Tour de France 2020

Currently, France is still one of many countries in Europe that are executing orders to close and isolate society when more than 15,000 people die of corona virus. In this situation, many people are concerned that the Tour de France – a “sports icon” of France – will not take place in 2020.

However, when decided to reschedule the Tour de France schedule. By August, Director Prudhomme believed that this was originally a sign that France in particular, and the world in general, was gradually recovering from the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The UCI World Tour 2020 is currently heavily affected by the Covid-19 epidemic. While the organizers of the Giro d’Italia (Grand Tour in Italy) have not yet made an official decision on the fate of this year’s tournament, that the tournament will be canceled or rescheduled like the Grand Tour in France, the tournament.

Tour de France will take place 2 months later than the original schedule and plan. Historically, there has never been a tournament taking place at such a late time, but this year’s tournament will be postponed and will take place from August 29 until September 20 this year.

The Grand Tour in Spain – Vuetla a Espana, and the UCI World Road Bikes Tournament (to be held in Martigny – Switzerland) are still “motionless”.

The thing is, with the Tour de France moving to August and September, both of these tournaments will be greatly affected, as Vuelta a Espana 2020 is scheduled to take place from August 14 to September 6, while the World Championship expected to take place from September 20 to September 27.
