Romain Bardet spoke about this at the start of the week: maintaining the
Tour de France 2020 seems less utopian than that
of the Olympic Games, postponed to 2021. Opinion visibly shared by the Minister of Sports, Roxana Maracineanu, who said Wednesday “imaginable” the holding of a Great Loop behind closed doors.

“Everything is imaginable, we have already done it for other competitions before, it does not have the same impact even if the economic model of the Tour de France is not based on ticketing as it is the case for football and rugby matches ”, affirmed the minister, questioned by radio France Bleu on the possibility of a Big Loop behind closed doors.

Not so penalizing

The government is in discussions with ASO, the organizer, on the fate reserved for the most prestigious of the Grand Tours, after the postponement of one year of the Olympic Games and the Euro of football and while sport, including cycling , is almost completely stopped until further notice.

“I think today everyone is aware and responsible for the period of confinement […] and the benefits it can bring […] to stay at home and give preference to the television show rather than the live show, so in the end it would not be so detrimental since we could follow it on television, “added the minister.

Since its creation in 1903, the Tour, which has become a phenomenon of society as much as of sport, was only stopped by the two world wars.
