The Dutch stages in the BinckBank Tour are canceled. The race would be held today in Zeeland (time trial in Vlissingen) and Friday in Limburg. The two stages have been canceled due to the tightened corona measures. Tomorrow will be forced to have a rest day, but for the other stages on Dutch territory an alternative is being worked on, organizer Golazo confirms in a press release.

The decision was taken jointly by the three mayors of the municipalities of Sittard-Geleen, Terneuzen and Vlissingen. According to them, it is not possible to comply with the tightened measures that were announced on Monday evening.

The new emergency ordinance that came into effect last night states that no audience may be present at sports matches and / or training. In addition, there are other rules that must be taken into account, such as the maximum number of people that may be present as a group and the athletes and organizations from countries where an orange or red code is in force.

Organizer Golazo: “Unfortunately, good organization is not followed up”

Organizer Golazo reacts disappointed to the decision. “The decision is unfortunately clear and so there will be no time trial in Vlissingen today / Wednesday. Within the limited time frame, it is impossible to work out an alternative for this (including the necessary permits), so Wednesday is forced to be a rest day. ”
