The organizers of the Tour have a Plan B according to the media

According to the media, the organizers of the Tour de France already have a plan B with the new term of the Old Lady. The world's most famous race, endangering the coronavirus pandemic, could take place on 25 July.

 

This year's 107th Tour still has its original date from June 27 to July 19 but is expected to be translated. In France, about 94,000 people were infected with coronavirus, and the number of victims of covid-19 is close to 14,000.

 

According to the French newspaper Le Parisien and the Spanish agency EFE, the tour organizers have already contacted the mayors of the towns where the stages begin and end this year to make sure they support a new date. Under Plan B - if approved by health professionals, the French government, and the UCI Cycling Union - the Tour should start in Nice on July 25 and end in Paris on August 16.

 

The organizing agency ASO has already stated that the fate of this year will be decided by 15 May at the latest. Last week, Tour Director Christian Prudhomme categorically rejected the idea of ​​going without spectators.
