The Benelux Tour, formerly known as the Eneco Tour and BinckBank Tour, has been cancelled for 2022, with officials citing the "overcrowded cycling calendar" as the reason for the race's removal from the calendar. 

Due to take place from Monday August 29 until Sunday September 4 in the Netherlands and Belgium, organisers stated there are logistical difficulties which cannot be solved for the Benelux Tour to go ahead as planned, with a lack of police available to assist throughout the event.
