Tour de France may be shifted again
The Tour de France’s anticipated August 29 start date for the postponed 2020 edition has fallen under new uncertainty as the French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, banned all mass sporting events until September.
However, a few hours later the French Ministry of Sport clarified that it might not affect the Tour. The 2020 Tour, originally scheduled to start in Nice on June 27 and finish in Paris on July 19, was recently rescheduled for August 29-September 20.
Three days of racing were planned in August in the south of the country, preceded by the usual teams presentation and Grand Départ events, which also attract large crowds.
The youngest rider ever to win the Tour de France was Henri Comet - he was only 19 years old when he won in 1904.
