Marc Hirschi to Julian Alaphilippe, The Best Descents of 2020

Dec 31, 2020

During the unpredictable 2020 season, viewers were treated to some of the most dynamic and explosive racing in recent memory.

The uncertainty of the season created a sense of desperation in the peloton. The next day of racing was never guaranteed, which resulted in heroic performances and big risks.

March Hirschi had fans on the edge of their seat as he hurtled down the descents of the Tour de France. Miguel Angel Lopez's Tour almost ended before it started thanks to the tactics of his Astana teammates. And Davide Formolo's plunge off the Col de la Madeleine earned him a victory in the Criterium du Dauphine, despite the commentators worried critiques.

Watch our favorite and most memorable descents of 2020.
