The organisers of the 2021 edition of the Škoda Tour LuXembourg have worked hard to ensure this event will not only be memorable but will also unfold in a safe way for all parties involved.
In order to keep the cyclists as safe as possible, the organisers will ensure that it is impossible to drive against the direction of the race. All relevant roads will be closed to traffic in both directions 10 to 15 minutes before the passage of the race. Upon the arrival of the “Red Flag” vehicle, the public road will officially be closed. The road will once again be accessible to users after the passage of the “Green Flag” vehicle. In certain places of the course, such as the descents, the road will be closed in advance and any access will be prohibited against the direction of the race.
Additionally, the Police and Marshals will be able to locate all riders at any time of the event using the “Winfleet App” from the Luxembourg company “Skycom”.
In addition, thanks to the “Winfleet App” from the Luxembourg company “Skycom”, the Police but also all signalers will be able to see where the runners are at any time.
Furthermore, the Škoda Tour LuXembourg has teamed up with the company “Boplan” to strengthen the smooth running of the event. The latter will provide the impact absorbing "Race Bumpers" to secure obstacles along the racecourse.
Finally, thanks to the support of the ACL (Automobile Club du Luxembourg) mobile digital signboards from the firm “Safecycling” will be placed throughout the stages to make the race safer for the riders.
To ensure a smooth event, the Tour organiser relies on the understanding and assistance of all road users. During the entire event, road users will be asked to strictly follow the instructions of the Police and race marshals.
