2020-2021 UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup: cancellation of the Junior and U23 races at the Namur and Dendermonde rounds in Belgium
Thursday 03 December 2020
Due to the current pandemic (Covid-19) linked to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the Belgian government has recently announced the continuation of measures and restrictions on sporting events until 15 January, 2021. Consequently, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) regrets having to announce that the Men Junior, Women Junior and Men Under 23 races at the next two rounds of the 2020-2021 UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup, which will take place in Namur (Belgium) on 20 December, and Dendermonde (Belgium) on 27 December have been cancelled. The Elite races for men and women are unaffected.
Flanders Classics and the UCI share the disappointment of the cyclo-cross community and acknowledge the organisers’ efforts in these difficult circumstances.
