the WORLD cup in cycling in the swiss Aigle Martigny, which should have been settled 20.-27. september, has been cancelled. It informs the swiss organizers in a press release.
the Reason is that forsamlingsreglerne in Switzerland until the end of september only allows collections of up to 1000 persons. In addition, Switzerland has continued quarantine for people who come travelers from 45 countries, which does not exactly promote the desire to participate.
- We are sad and disappointed. We have worked hard for more than two years to deliver a fantastic event at an extraordinary route, says WORLD cup-the two presidents Grégory Devaud and Alexandre Debons.
In principle, a VM could easily be run with a lot of restrictions, but the organizers have virtually only the revenue, the audience is put at such an event, and without them the championships generate a huge deficit.
To the WORLD cup in Switzerland is cancelled, does not mean that we do not get a WORLD cup in 2020. The International Cykelunion (UCI) works, namely to find an alternative location and possibly a new period - to settle the WORLD cup on. It informs in a statement:
- Since we are aware that time is essential for the riders, the national federations and all those involved, will the UCI communicate more information as quickly as possible, and a final decision will be taken within 1. september, sounds.
If the project does not succeed, will Mads Pedersen will be allowed to run one more season in the rainbow-colored leotard, he won, when he was first over the line last year at the WORLD cup in Yorkshire.
