We continue our look back at bikes raced over the years by the teams in Le Tour 2020. In this collection, we trace the Ridley and Canyon bikes raced by riders from the Belgian-registered Lotto-Soudal team.
One of just three teams in the Tour de France of 2020 that has a sponsorship association with Campagnolo, Lotto-Soudal also has a long association with Ridley bikes. This Belgian team / bike supplier arrangement was first established in 2005, when Cadel Evans joined the line-up and Robbie McEwen was one of the dominant sprinters in the pro peloton.
The Ridley relationship was interrupted for a few years, when Canyon started to get a foothold in the top-tier of the pro peloton. From 2009 to 2011, the team raced Canyon but the Ridley connection picked up again in 2012… and that brand association remains in place in 2020.
