The Tour de France 2020 is well underway after kicking off in Nice on Saturday, August 29 - here are all the riders who have abandoned this edition of the race so far.

After a chaotic opening stage which resulted in dozens of crashes on the wet roads around Nice, there are still plenty of riders carrying injuries.

Those wounds are still taking their toll as each day we are seeing riders pull out of the 2020 Tour due to the injuries they picked up on the first day.

The peloton will take on a notoriously tough edition of the Tour, with a challenging start on the mountain terrain around Nice in the South of France, followed by eight mountain finishes and an uphill time trial on La Planche des Belles Filles to conclude the general classification battle.

Injury isn't the only reason to abandon the Tour however, as we've seen riders ejected from the race for finishing outside the time limit (John Degenkolb on stage one) and some forced to leave the race due to illness (Gregor Mühlberger on stage 11).

Here is the full start list for the 2020 Tour. 

Over three weeks of racing, the Tour de France is often defined by the crashes, injuries and illness as riders try to battle through the enormous endurance test.
