Organizer Golazo, together with the municipality of Aalter, has found a solution for tomorrow’s 3rd stage in the BinckBank Tour. Normally, that from Philippine in the Netherlands went to Aalter, but because the Dutch start and finish places no longer allow BBT, the start and finish is now in Aalter.
Due to the stricter corona measures in the Netherlands, the BinckBank Tour is no longer welcome in the Netherlands. No departure in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen in Philippine so tomorrow. “The Aalter municipality, however, enthusiastically accepted the organization’s proposal to start the ride in Aalter as well,” the organization announced this morning.
“The organization had to look for an alternative and found that at the planned arrival place. The council of mayor and aldermen of Aalter gladly accepted the proposal to run the planned local round 7 times, instead of 3 times, and therefore also to start in the municipality. “
For example, there will be a journey of 145 kilometers that will continue entirely on the territory of Aalter. The finish is as planned on the Europalaan, the start will be at 1 pm next to the cemetery.
Ships: “Strictly monitor safety regulations”
Alderman Dirk De Smul: “This year it is the 7th time that we work together with Golazo on a major cycling race. We love the race here in Aalter. That is why we as a college were able to immediately support this proposal. “
“With our events cell and the police forces, we will do our utmost to be able to experience the course optimally, even in the current circumstances. Our residents may also enjoy it, but we will strictly ensure that everywhere along the course the safety regulations are complied with and everyone is kept a good distance from each other and wears a mouth mask. ”
Golazo spokesman Gert Van Goolen is relieved and grateful. “In the meantime, we are also working out a nice alternative for Friday to the stage that would normally end in Dutch Limburg. A definitive answer is expected about this in the course of the afternoon. The final stage on Saturday from Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve to Geraardsbergen, with arrival on de Vesten, will remain as planned. ”
