STATUS OF NATIONAL EVENTS – AS OF MARCH 9, 2021

Ottawa, ON (March 9, 2021) – Since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cycling Canada, our local organizing committees and our provincial and territorial cycling associations have remained committed to making 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. As the circumstances surrounding the global pandemic continue to evolve in Canada, many local organizing committees have been forced to make difficult decisions regarding the status of their events in the interest of public health and safety.

As of today’s release, Cycling Canada is in a position to confirm the postponement or cancelation of the below-listed events:

Canceled:

  • Western Track Challenge. Burnaby, BC
  • Challenge Gary Longhi (of the Défi Sportif AlterGo). Montréal, QC
  • Chrono Féminin de la Gatineau & Tour de Gatineau. Gatineau, QC
  • Delta Road Race. Delta, BC
  • Global Relay Gastown Grand Prix. Vancouver, BC
  • SilverStar Canada Cup DH. SilverStar Mountain Resort, BC

  • Tour de Beauce. St. Georges, QC (reschedule to September 15-19, 2021)
  • Panorama Canada Cup DH. Panorama Mountain Resort, BC (reschedule to July 19-21, 2021)

  • Whistler Canada Cup XCO. Whistler, BC

Cycling Canada has consulted with each of the above local organizing committees to review all relevant information regarding the decision to cancel or postpone these events, and supports these difficult decisions.

In the coming weeks, Cycling Canada will work to consult directly with each of our local organizing committees with events remaining on the calendar, including those who have chosen to postpone. Following those consultations, a subsequent Event Status release will be issued in early May to provide further clarity on the 2021 events calendar moving forward.

Within the May communication will be a clear outline of all re-scheduled dates, as well as those events who have chosen to proceed with their original dates. In the meantime, please note that all events remaining on the national calendar will remain tentative as the global pandemic continues to evolve. For a complete, up-to-date list of cancelled or postponed events on the national calendar, please consult the Event Status Updates page, updated daily.

Cycling Canada would like to take this opportunity to once again commend our dedicated local organizing committees who continue to weather this storm with a tremendous amount of optimism and regard for public safety. We remain committed to providing the Canadian cycling community the opportunity to once again attend and participate in organized cycling events, and look forward to that reality in 2021.
