Due to the current pandemic (Covid-19) linked to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) must announce that the fifth round of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, which was to take place in Mont-Sainte-Anne (Canada) from 21 to 23 August, has been cancelled at the request of its organisers.

The UCI and the organisers cooperated throughout the process, initially seeking a postponement of the event, before resorting to taking the difficult decision to cancel the UCI World Cup stopover. The UCI shares the disappointment of the cross-country and downhill community, and acknowledges the concerted efforts made by the organiser Gestev, Canada’s National Federation for cycling and the local authorities in these difficult circumstances.
