Honestly, to me it felt like arrogance and ignorance. Like "Tour de France doesn't bow to corona, corona bows to Tour de France" mentality. He could simply have said, that they are working hard to get the show on the road, and are considering all options, even without crowds if all else fails, but that even that is no guarantee.

I think without crowds it is possible to hold the TDF, like i said in the dedicated corona threads. If they cut all the press people, and have riders do interviews over skype-ish solutions. Don't hold podium ceremonies, no starting ceremonies, reduce the crew each team can bring... If they test all the riders and crew and have them go into quarantine before and after the event. This line of thinking is what they should have been following. Not "We're the TDF, corona will move for us".
It would be just like the old days of the Chicken-Floyd-Vino era. Instead of waiting at the start of each stage to see who tested positive for drugs and was disqualified, we’ll wait til the next day to see who won’t start cause they tested positive for COVID-19.

IMHO the Giro dates should be flexible. Anyone who tests positive for COVID at the Tour moves into a "Giro pot." The Giro starts once there are enough positives to make 5-rider teams.
