What to know
Formerly Dimension Data, the South African squad hasn’t had true ambitions of a top Tour de France finish in some years. It looks like 2020 will be no different; expect NTT to target stage wins with its lineup of opportunists. Giacomo Nizzolo is a fast sprinter who can survive medium hills. Roman Kreuziger and Edvald Boasson Hagen are skilled breakaway riders. And Louis Meintjes just might crack the top-10 overall.
A stage win would be a boon for the South African squad. Look for them to animate the breakaways, but don’t expect them to challenge for any jerseys.
