...13 out of 16 mayors have said "no" to holding it on a Saturday when beaches are packed. Race director Mauro Vegni is trying to persuade them this is their chance to show the world they're open. But it's not just down to mayors, local prefectures/interior ministry also rule.

Would a Wednesday be better?

For the mayors, probably yes but less so for the race, TV audiences and getting late to switch anyway

those two reasons are more of an "as opposed to" than a "as well as"

Was about to say the same. Maybe those beaches are more of a Corona problem than a bike race. Money talks.

No wonder Italy doesn’t have any pro teams by now. Cycling in the past decades just simply lost its popularity. Something like this around the MSR would have been unthinkable even in the 90’s. Not to mention the 60s-70s. No local politician would have dare to risk such thing.

Beaches are a big deal. But MSR has long had problems with local traders, eg finish moved to the Sanremo lungomare because the Via Roma shopkeepers complained. Hopefully central government settles this quick

Parecen ridiculos... Deberían cerrar es las playas, no privarnos del deporte.
