Defending champion Alberto Bettiol (EF Pro Cycling) is down to start with a strong team around him as they come up against the likes of Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) and former World Champion, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) who is coming in off the back of his Gent-Wevelgem win.

On-form Deceuninck-Quick-Step bring with them a strong team, including World Champion, Julian Alaphilippe, who makes his debut at the race, Yves Lampaert, Kasper Asgreen and Zdeněk Stybar.

Possibly the out and out favourite is the star of the year, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), as he looks to continue his amazing form going into the cobbled monuments.

Mark Cavendish (Bahrain-McLaren) continues racing despite the rumours he is retiring after his tearful interview after Gent-Wevelgem. This is his first time riding the Ronde since back in 2011.

In the women’s race, defending champion Marta Bastianelli is no longer down to defend her title as her team Alé-BTC-Ljubljana pull out due to Covid-19.

So the race will likely be between the likes off World Champion, Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans), European Champion, Annemiek Van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) as the main favourites.

Other on-form riders and real dangers for the race win are Jolien d’Hoore (Boels-Dolmans), who is coming in to the race after winning Gent-Wevelgem ahead of two of favourites, Lotte Kopecky (Lotto-Soudal) and Lisa Brennauer (Ceretizit-WNT).

Elisa Longo-Borghini (Trek-Segafredo), Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo), Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb) and Lauren Stephens (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank) are just a few other names worth noting in the list of possible winners.

Équipe Paule Ka will not be riding as the team folded a few days before the race after their sponsors had not payed the team for three months.
