The Tour caravan will travel from Denmark to the French west coast on Monday, where the Tour continues on Tuesday with a stage from Dunkirk to Calais. The organizing ASO has informed the teams that traffic jams can arise on Dutch roads due to farmers who use tractors to protest against the government’s nitrogen policy.
“It is not that we avoid the Netherlands, but we have been warned about it,” says the spokesman for the Dutch team Jumbo-Visma. “Both within our own organization and by the ASO. You can cross the Netherlands if you want, but that is not the most logical choice given the route.” Most teams drive from Denmark through Germany and then cross the border at Limburg towards Antwerp. From there they drive on to Dunkirk.
“That is doable, we have not experienced any delays at all,” said the spokesman. The cyclists already went by plane from Denmark to France on Sunday evening, all team buses and team cars followed on Monday.
