Trentin wants Grand Tours merged into 'one-shot event'
Matteo Trentin has suggested all three 2020 Grand Tours should be combined together to form a 21-stage race across Italy, France and Spain.
The Giro d’Italia has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana could follow suit.
There has been speculation that the three-week races could be moved into the autumn, if the situation has improved by then, or shortened to fit into the calendar.
However, Italian rider Trentin is in favour of a “one-shot event to restart all together”.
"Why not organize only one GT this year? Start in Rome, passing through Madrid, finish in Paris. All the best on the start and a great way to reunite all the people with a bike race after this horrible time," Trentin wrote on Twitter.
"To be more clear. Normal race length. 21 stages, 7 (France), 7 (Italy), 7 (Spain), 2 rest [days]. And most important: is one shot event. To restart all together. 2021 back on normal business."
