Supporting and promoting international sport worldwide

The week in review

21st to 27th September

Today has been stage 20 and the individual time trial and prelude to the final day tomorrow of the Tour de France 2020. Apart from concerns with supporters without masks getting too close to the riders, it has been a very successful tour. Primož Roglic of Slovenia held the yellow jersey at the start of the stage and after a dramatic day, it has been taken from him by fellow countryman Tadej Pogacar. The rider is set to become the youngest winner of the Tour de France since the inception of the yellow jersey, as tradition states no other riders challenge on the final day. In Italy it is also the final day of the Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile with the results not through yet. We stay in Italy for the UCI Road World Championships starting on Thursday until Sunday. It is understandably a very condensed season for road cycling as in October there is still the Giro d'Italia and La Vuelta to complete. On Sunday it will be the first day of Roland-Garros, the final Grand Slam of the year. It follows very closely on the US Open where Naomi Osaka and Dominic Thiem won the singles. Wimbledon was the only casualty during the lockdown period. In golf, the U.S. Open and the penultimate major, is currently underway with Patrick Reed as the interim leader.

The biggest FIA World Endurance Championship race has started. The 88th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will test drivers to the limit with the winners of the different classes determined by midday tomorrow. Returning to cycling and specifically for mountain bike fans, the UCI Eliminator World Cup starts this week on a revised schedule. This is followed the following week with the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Also returning to tennis, the Fed Cup has been renamed the Billie Jean King Cup in honour of the tennis champion and founder of the Women's Tennis Association. Finally, athletics saw an amazing achievement this week when Swedish star Armand Duplantis cleared 6.15m on the outdoor pole vault discipline at the Wanda Diamond League in Rome. 

With various nations across Europe dealing with an increase in new cases of Covid-19, we expect potential restrictions to come in to place. This may impact the weekly calendar that follows. Until next time, have a great sporting week!
