Stage 1 - Nice Moyen Pays to Nice

One of the most chaotic starts to the Tour de France in recent memory. 

Stage 2 - Nice Haut Pays to Nice

The victor of Stage 2 continues to entertain with his swashbuckling style, but he also brought us to tears with a tribute to his father. 

Stage 3 - Nice to Sisteron

A sprint star dear to the hearts of Australian fans came from nowhere, battling through a maze of riders to prove that his stage wins in 2019 were no fluke. 

And Robbie McEwen broke down the amazing sprint:

Stage 4 - Sisteron to Orcières-Merlette 

The first mountain finish at the 2020 Tour de France saw the main contenders stretch their legs, and each other. 

Stage 5 - Gap to Privas

A surprise winner and surprise new rider in yellow. 

Stage 6 - Le Teil to Mont Aigoual

A lone survivor of the breakaway took his first Tour de France victory.

Stage 7 - Millau to Lavaur

The race was blown to pieces by an early climb and crosswinds, producing some thrilling racing. 

Stage 8 - Cazères-Sur-Garonne to Loudenville

Another rider survived the day's break to bask in Tour de France stage glory but the real battle, the one for the yellow jersey, was happening behind him. 

Stage 9 - Pau to Laruns

As the mist rolled in over the Pyrenees, the contenders for the yellow jersey battled it out and a solo breakaway rider fought for survival to the finish.
