It's hard to digest but I think the most probable outcome is no Giro this year. It's hard to imagine that especially the Italians would agree to such a big event with so big crowds for three weeks happening in their country after these terrible pandemic. See ya at Giro 2021 starting from Budapest.

Except I'm pretty sure the agreement for the Giro start in 2021 has already been made.
 
This is hard. I was very much looking forward to this cycling season which promised to be spectacular:

  • Van der Poel vs. Van Aert vs. DQS in the classics;
  • Evenepoel in the Giro;
  • Ineos vs. Jumbo in the Tour;
  • Olympics and Worlds on hard and selective routes;
...

I hope the virus can get contained as quickly as possible and we can have a rather 'normal' second part of the season but my hopes aren't high anymore.

Olympics and WC still have a chance i think. Tour maaaybe (1/3 or so?).

But yeah. *** all of that ***. *** virus.
