Ottawa, ON (July 24, 2020) – As the 2020 calendar year continues to progress, Cycling Canada and our provincial and territorial cycling associations continue to make decisions in the interest of ensuring a safe sporting environment for our members and participants at all levels and in all parts of the country. In recent months, Cycling Canada has made the decision to cancel or postpone several events on the 2020 national calendar as a result of continuously evolving public health guidelines.
In conjunction with the Alberta Bicycle Association, Cycling Canada has made the difficult decision to cancel the Canadian BMX Championships, initially scheduled to take place from September 5-6, 2020. Cycling Canada will continue to monitor the feasibility of the remaining events on our calendar and will communicate any changes six weeks prior to the event’s scheduled date.
In addition to this cancellation, the Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal, originally planned for September 11 & 13, have made the decision to cancel their 2020 edition. An update on the status of the 2020 Canadian Road Championships will be made next Friday, July 31st.
For an up-to-date list of cancelled or postponed events on the national calendar, please consult the event list on the Cycling Canada website. For more information regarding Cycling Canada recommendations, please consult our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions.
