Belgium was hit with a terror attack Tuesday, with bombs exploding in the Brussels airport and at a nearby metro train station. The attack, which left dozens dead, may force the cancelation of at least one of cycling’s Belgian classics this week.

Reactions from the peloton were swift and unanimously supportive.
