2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup: rounds in Manchester (Great Britain) and Papendal (Netherlands) postponed

Mar 18, 2020, 15:24 PM

Due to the current pneumonia epidemic (Covid-19) linked to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) must announce that the next two rounds of the 2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup which were to take place in Manchester (Great Britain) on 18 and 19 April and in Papendal, Netherlands, on 2 and 3 May, will not take place on the scheduled dates.

In line with its recommendations made last Sunday to organisers from countries identified at risk by health authorities, the UCI is fully supportive of the decisions taken by the British and Dutch organising committees to postpone the events based on directives adopted by their governments to counter the spread of the virus.

The current conditions require the postponement of the events, and the UCI and Manchester and Papendal will work together in due course to establish new dates, if conditions permit.
