After a special edition of the Tour de France, ASO is organizing the 118th edition of Paris-Roubaix on October 25. The local authorities are keen to ensure the safe passage of the cobbled classic in their region, because the corona figures in the department of Hauts-de-France are going in the wrong direction.
The holy cycling week moves through the adjusted cycling calendar to mid-October. On October 18 the classic leaders can let off steam in the Tour of Flanders, a week later a successor for Philippe Gilbert is sought on the track of Roubaix.
Michel Lalande, prefect of the French departments of Nord and Hauts-de-France, questions the organization of the course in his region. “The Tour de France could take place with adjustments. I hope that the same sanitary measures will also be taken in the organization of Paris-Roubaix ”, Lalande says on the channels of France Bleu Nord. “I will soon be meeting with the organizing committee to see what attitude they will take towards the evolution of the virus, which is starting to spread more and more.
