Organization redesigns BinckBank Tour route: tomorrow stage Aalter-Aalter, Friday time trial in Riemst | Cycling | Sport


Photo News Yesterday Jasper Philipsen won the opening stage in Ardooie.

Good news for the BinckBank Tour: a solution has been found for the Thursday and Friday ride. Thursday’s stage will start and finish in Aalter and will be held in its entirety on a local circuit. An individual time trial of 8.14 kilometers will follow on Friday with start in Riemst and finish in Kanne, a district of Riemst.

On Tuesday evening, a number of mayors in the Netherlands decided to no longer allow sports matches on their territory, which meant that three stages of the BinckBank Tour were canceled. For example, today there is a rest day instead of a time trial in Vlissingen.

Thursday’s stage – Philippine-Aalter – also had to be redesigned, as the start was no longer allowed in the district of Terneuzen. Organizer Golazo already came up with a solution this morning: Aalter will be responsible for both the start and finish. “Logistics was a relatively easy solution because all permits were already in order,” says Gert Van Goolen on behalf of Golazo. “We start at the roundabout near the cemetery of Aalter and then drive 7 laps on the local course instead of the 3 laps that were initially planned. That gives a stage of 145 kilometers. The finish remains on the Europalaan. ”
