Giro del Belvedere organizing company Pro Belvedere officially announced the cancellation of the U23 international race planned in Villa di Cordignano (Treviso, Italy) on Monday, April 13th, due the COVID-19 health emergency and the related measures adopted by the International Cycling Union (UCI) on March 15th, 2020.
The organizing committee has decided to not ask for a new date in the 2020 UCI international calendar, and the appointment is therefore postponed to next year.
“Public health takes priority over everything – the organizers explained. – For this reason we decided to renounce to the 2020 edition. We hope the Covid-19 virus will be eradicated soon, but returning to normality will take time”.
The Pro Belvedere has followed to the UCI request to “cancel any cycling event on the UCI International Calendar in territories identified at risk by the World Health Organization”.
“Trying to figure out a new date in an already congested international calendar would have been difficult: – the organizers continued – the Giro del Belvedere has its peculiarities as an event, with its traditional moments and specific dates. This is why we decided to not ask for a new date”.
