Lotto Soudal's Thomas De Gendt has told the Belgian media that he remains unconvinced that there will be any more racing for the 2020 season, although he would be only too pleased if there was a way for the three Grand Tours and the Monuments to take place.

"I can't imagine that the virus will suddenly disappear and everything will just go back to normal. Sport will be one of the last things to be considered. So yes, I still believe that Paris-Nice was the last race of 2020," De Gendt told VTM News on Tuesday, according to a report on HLN.be.
