The Tour de Suisse will not be held in 2020, the race's organisers have announced. 

The move comes as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, which has seen Switzerland shut down all public and private events, closed restaurants, and limit who can enter the country.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
