Tour de France-2020 was to be held from 27 June to 19 July, however, the decision of the President of France Emmanuel Makron banning of public events through July 11, has made it impossible to hold the race as scheduled.
At the same time to cancel the race organizers did not expect:
“Given that the conduct of the Tour de France in the scheduled date is not possible, we consult with the UCI (International Cycling Union) to find a new date,” said the organizers of the “Big loop”.
With high probability, the Tour de France will be held in August-September that would entail the transfer of the Spanish Vuelta. Giro d’italia, which was to be held in may, could be held in late October.
General Manager of French team Ag2r La Mondiale Vincent Lavenyu said that the holding of the Tour de France is necessary for the financial survival of the teams and expressed the hope that the race will not be cancelled.
