Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Tour of Flanders have become the latest of the five ‘Monuments’ of road cycling to be postponed.

The decision from the organiser of the one-day races, Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) and Flanders Classics, make the French and Belgian events the latest cycling showpieces affected by Covid-19. ASO, with the agreement of the International Cycling Union (UCI), said it had decided to not organise Paris-Roubaix (April 12), the Flèche Wallonne and the Flèche Wallonne Women (April 22) and Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Liège-Bastogne-Liège Women (April 26) on their scheduled dates.
