Too early to decide if Tour de France can go ahead this year - ministry

PARIS, March 26 (Reuters) - It is too soon to decide whether the Tour de France can go ahead amid the coronavirus pandemic, a French Sports Ministry spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday.

French media have speculated on a cancellation or postponement and newspaper Le Figaro wrote that the ministry is considering organising the cycling event in June and July without spectators in order to minimise infection risk.
