One of the biggest sporting events in the world started in France: the Tour de France. This is quite remarkable, because the country has many problems with corona.
For the first two days the riders will cycle through the city of Nice, where it is currently code red. In three weeks time the finish will be in Paris and there too it will be code red. In both cities a lot of people have corona.
The riders have to be extra careful. They are tested regularly and at the presentation of the teams they all wore mouth caps.
Do you like the Tour this year or is it unwise? Respond to the statement:
There are seven Dutch people participating in the Tour de France this year and there is a contender for the final victory. Tom Dumoulin may be able to win the yellow jersey. Other Dutch people who have a chance to win include Robert Gesink, Bauke Mollema and Cees Bol.
