I suppose it boils down to regions.
The Great Amazing Cheese Race, which was supposed to have been held just two days after P-R has sadly - but understandably - already been cancelled/postponed. However, Roue Tourangelle this Sunday appears to be on, so do Grand Besancon (16th) and Tour du Jura (17th)
The French truly are mocking us (no xenophobia intended).

This is exactly my point - It's the local authorities who don't wish to hold PR - It's not a central Government or central health authority decision.
 
Highs in the low 40s, 70% chance of rain and wind gusts up to 15MPH.
Assuming you're using Fahrenheit, coz otherwise that would be some insanely high temperatures for early April!

Well, if the situation is better where Tourangelle, Besancon, and Jura are being held... (not necessarily the same place).
And now it looks like Besancon and Jura has been called off.

At this stage my post about theTDU is ringing true - The Aussie Government will need to reduce their quarantine requirements or there will be no TDU, and it may even get to the stage where the UCI takes away the World's for September 22.

Seriously, if all or almost all of the population is going to be vaccinated keeping the borders close seems a bit too much, no?
I don't think they have even started, or only barely? And tbh, it's probably going to be difficult to get enough people interested as long as the borders are closed, as this results in no no urgency at all for most people
 
Arguably belongs here

Österreich-Rundfahrt cancelled this year as well at least in part due to additional Covid costs and uncertainties
