The early part of the 2020 cycling season has so far been defined by record-breaking rides. On the track, the Danes twice broke the team pursuit world record at the Track World Championships, while the road has also seen a number of riders send previous best times tumbling.

Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic) broke the Chalet Reynard climbing record on Mont Ventoux, although some dispute this, while Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) set a new fastest time trial record on the three-year-old course at the Volta ao Algarve on his way to the overall victory.
