Tokyo 2020 test events for BMX Freestyle Park and track cycling postponed

Mar 23, 2020, 19:10 PM

In the current context of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which also affects Japan, cycling’s governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), must announce that the Tokyo 2020 test events for BMX Freestyle and track cycling scheduled for 11 and 12 April, respectively in Tokyo and Izu, will not be held as originally planned.

In view of the current health situation, holding the events would potentially put at risk the health of the riders, all those involved in the event and the fans, and compromise an equal sporting treatment for all nations.

The UCI and Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee will work together on new dates depending of course on the decisions taken by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
