Organisers of the Grand Prix de Denain have announced that the cobbled semi-Classic is the latest race in the 2021 season to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The race, which was scheduled for March 18 in northern France, was last held in 2019 and won with a solo attack by Mathieu van der Poel ahead of Marc Sarreau. Last season, the race was cancelled, but organisers hope to find a new slot for the 2021 edition at a later date.
