While two of last year's top three won't be taking the start line, as Egan Bernal and Michał Kwiatkowski's Ineos are one of a number of teams to drop out of the French stage race, a host of strong riders are still set to contest Paris-Nice 2020.

With the cancellation of Italy's March races, Paris-Nice's line-up has been bolstered, with the likes of Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Romain Bardet (Ag2r La Mondiale) being added to their team's squads at the last minute.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
