The Tour de France is postponed due to the Corona pandemic for the first time since World War II. The organizer announced that the new start should be at the end of August.

The Tour de France has been postponed to August 29 through September 20 due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was announced by the organizer ASO and the International Cycling Federation (UCI) on Wednesday. The original stage plan is retained.

The tour should have started on June 27th in Nice and traditionally ended on July 19th at the Paris Champs-Elysees. On Monday, French head of state Emmanuel Macron banned all major events until July 11th.

Since its premiere in 1903, the tour has only been canceled in the wake of the two world wars.
