The Boxmeer cycling criterion, Days after the Tour, will not take place this year either.

The race was scheduled for Monday 19 July.

According to the organization, the corona measures are "still so strict" in July that it is impossible to welcome tens of thousands of spectators.

"We can only decide to draw a line through Days after the Tour."

"The date of the round is simply too early. During that period, events without tickets are subject to the condition that the one and a half meter measure must be observed. That will become an impracticable matter so that only cancellations remained," said round boss Pierre Hermans.

The board has looked into the possibility of shifting the round to September, but for various reasons, that was not an option, according to Hermans.

"We are doing violence to the formula. After all, the magic of the Boxmeer round is that it is held one day after the finish of the Tour de France."

Last year the event in Boxmeer was canceled either.

That was the first time in 45 years.

In 2019 the competition was won by Mike Teunissen of Jumbo-Visma.
