Aalter also provides the start of the Thursday stage BinckBank Tour
Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 12:10 PM
Philippine-Aalter becomes Aalter-Aalter. Perhaps the most logical solution after the Dutch start and arrival places no longer allow the BinckBank Tour due to the stricter corona measures. “Fortunately, the Aalter municipality enthusiastically accepted the proposal to start the ride there,” organizer Golazo announced.
“After the forced day of rest today, the BinckBank Tour will return from tomorrow. The municipality of Aalter enthusiastically accepted the organization’s proposal to start Thursday’s ride there as well ”, the press release starts. “Originally, the third stage of this BinckBank Tour was to start in Philippine in Zeeland. Yesterday evening, however, the Dutch mayors of the start and finish places (and therefore also Philippine) decided not to allow the BinckBank Tour anymore. ”
“The organization immediately started looking for an alternative and found it at the planned arrival location, Aalter. The council of mayor and aldermen of Aalter was happy to accept the proposal to run the planned local round seven times, instead of three times, and therefore also start in the municipality. We get a ride of 145 km, completely on the territory of Aalter. The finish is as planned on the Europalaan, the start will be at 1 pm next to the cemetery. ”
This afternoon the final decision about Friday ride
“This year is the seventh time that we have collaborated with Golazo on a major cycling race. We love the course ”, says ships Dirk De Smul. “That is why, as a council, we could immediately support the proposal to start here tomorrow and to do the entire ride on our territory, on the planned local lap. With our events cell and the police services, we will do our utmost to optimally experience the race. Our residents may also enjoy this, but we will strictly ensure that safety regulations are observed everywhere along the course and that everyone keeps a good distance from each other and wears a mouth mask. ”
Golazo is now also working out an alternative for Friday for the ride that would normally end in Dutch Limburg. A definitive answer is expected on this in the course of the afternoon. Saturday’s final stage from Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve to Geraardsbergen, with arrival at the Vesten, remains entirely as planned.
