Due to the current pandemic (Covid-19) linked to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is sorry to announce that the 2020 UCI Indoor Cycling World Championships, which were to take place in Stuttgart (Germany) from 27 to 29 November, have been cancelled at the request of the organisers.

The UCI looks forward to seeing the athletes and all concerned parties for the event’s 2021 edition, which will take place in Stuttgart from 29 to 31 October.

The UCI also announces the cancellation of the entire 2020 UCI Cycle-ball World Cup following the cancellation of the Final of the series, which to date was cycle-ball’s only World Cup fixture still going ahead. It was to take place on 5 December in Prague (Czech Republic).

To date, the Final of the 2020 UCI Artistic Cycling World Cup is still scheduled for 21 November in Albstadt (Germany).

Still in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the UCI also regrets having to announce the cancellation of the 2020 UCI Trials World Cup after the cancellations, at the request of the organisers, of the rounds in Wadowice (Poland) and Il Ciocco (Italy), which would have taken place respectively on 4-6 September and 18-20 September.

The UCI shares the disappointment of the indoor cycling and trials communities, and thanks the organisers for their cooperation in this difficult situation.
