In an interview with La Dernière Heure, the Belgian ruled out riding the postponed Tour de France and said that he would give priority to the Giro over Liège-Bastogne-Liège in the event of a clash, though he is favourable to the idea of reducing the postponed Grand Tours to two weeks in a compressed 2020 calendar.

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.
