Ottawa, ON (September 3, 2020) – As the 2020 calendar year progresses, Cycling Canada continues to monitor the national health crisis with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of continuously evolving public health guidelines, Cycling Canada has made the decision, in conjunction with Cycling BC and the Wheelhouse Cycling Society, to cancel the 2020 Canadian Cyclo-cross Championships and Bear Crossing Grand Prix, originally scheduled to take place from November 21-22, 2020.
As has been the case since the beginning of this pandemic, Cycling Canada and our national event organizers will continue to operate our events calendar in a manner that supports first and foremost the health and safety of our members and the general public. Although there will be no national cyclo-cross races this year, we look forward to returning to Langford for the 2021 and 2022 editions of the Canadian Cyclo-cross Championships.
