Bei der diesjährigen Tour de France fährt man um das wirtschaftliche Überleben des professionellen Radsports, jedenfalls klingt es so in diesem Artikel:
"I have said if I were to miss any Tour, this would be the one in a lot of ways," Woods told The Canadian Press. "Although the course is really good for me, I think it's also going to be mentally a really weird Tour just with everything going around the Tour.
"With COVID. And with all of the focus of the world of cycling being on this race because it's so crucial to sponsors. If this race doesn't make it to the end, a lot of sponsors could potentially leave, pull out of cycling. So there's just so much more pressure on every rider this year.
"And with a couple of teams on the brink, that may not continue next year, riders are going to be that much more desperate. So it's just this perfect storm of crazy that's going to result in a high-stakes Tour, lots of stress and likely some big crashes. We've already seen this year some really big crashes in the opening weeks of racing. Awful crashes ... It's going to be a hectic Tour."
Ich weiß allerdings nicht, was "[i]f this race doesn't make it to the end" heißen soll.
