The decision to hold the Tour de France 2020 Cycling race will be made in mid-may.
So far, the multi-day event is scheduled for the period from June 27 to July 19.
The race organizer ASO said that it is considering four options for the development of events in the context of the coronavirus pandemic: the Tour de France will be held as usual, held without fans along the tracks, will be postponed or canceled.
French sports Minister Roxane Maracineanu believes that holding the race without an audience is the best option, but the decision will still be made later.
“Tour” is our sports monument. It’s too early to decide. There is time. At this point, we need to win a much more important battle. So let’s focus on this mountain that has come before us all, and then we will think about what to do next, ” Marasinyan said.
