Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne 2020 start list

Provisional list of teams and riders taking part in the 2020 edition of Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne in Belgium on Sunday, March 1

The 2020 Classics season is almost upon us with Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne being the second semi-Classic of the weekend on the March 1 after Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on the Saturday.

Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne is usually a race for the sprinters, with riders like Dylan Groenewegen, (Team Jumbo-Visma), and Mark Cavendish (Bahrain-McLaren) being past winners. But, the race can be very open and solo riders or small breakaways can stay away.

Last year’s winner, Bob Jungels (Deceuninck-Quick-Step), won with a solo attack ahead of Owain Doull (Team Ineos) and Niki Terpstra (Team Total Direct Energie). Doull won’t be on the start line to try and go one better than last year.

The 2020 start list is almost complete, however, there are some notable absentees, including Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin Fenix) Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and Philippe Gilbert (Lotto-Soudal). Other notable absentees are that of Team Jumbo-Visma, who aren’t on the start list at all.
