The 2020 Tour of Oman is set to be rescheduled for early March after its cancellation earlier this month, according to a report from WielerFlits.

Originally scheduled as a ProSeries event for February 11-16, the race could now instead be run from March 3-8. The news comes after all major events in the country were suspended or cancelled after the death of the ruler of Oman, Sultan Qaboos bin Said al-Said on January 10.
