The 68th running of the race will take place next year after a meeting between the organising committee, governing body UCI, a delegation of the team leaders, the police and local authorities deemed conditions unsafe for those taking part and fans.

Most of the roads were cleared of snow thanks to the efforts of volunteers, but some had blown back on to the route.

Snow also cancelled Sunday’s Dwars door Drenthe in the Netherlands.
