by Matt de Neef

Coming into the 2020 Tour de France it seemed like Sunweb had hamstrung itself by not selecting Michael Matthews. The Aussie sprinter was on great form and seemed to be a real chance of a stage win. We’ll never know how Matthews would have gone, of course, but it’s fair to say Sunweb has made do without him pretty well.

The German squad has now won three stages, all of them from daring solo breakaways. The most recent of those, Friday’s stage 19, was Soren Kragh Andersen’s second win of the race, and another great demonstration of timing and strength.

Here’s how stage 19 of the Tour de France unfolded, through the lenses of our great photographers at the race.
