After our group ride last night got cancelled due to thunderstorms, I got to thinking: Has a tour stage or even the tour itself ever been cancelled or delayed due to weather? Just wondering.

There was this well-known example.
If the conditions are dangerous in the eyes of the commissaires (mostly ex-racers, so they'll know) a stage, or any race, can be cancelled, shortened or the results set at a certain point prior to the finish.
They shortened a stage of the 'Giro' this year......bloody wimps didn't want to ride up a 24% grade in 3ft of snow! :D
