quite an early start there by the way, at the end of June - especially with the one of the Giro rumored to be moved to mid-May

If I remember correctly from previous Olympic years, it's 'just' the Tour that moves - causing a ripple effect that results in the national champs and the June races also moving.

I don't remember the Giro etc. moving, though - so that sets a 'hard limit' to how far the calendar can be pushed.

I've just looked it up and the only time the tour actually moved for the olympics since that was opened up to Pro riders was back in 1996. That was also when the Giro was a week later than it currently is so I'm guessing that the situation will be the same as it was then with of course the other changes to the calendar that have happened in the intervening years.
