We eagerly await word from our Premier this afternoon on the governments “stage 1” reopening plan. There are a number of rumours circulating that reopening plans will include individual indoor and outdoor sport competition without spectators.
At the present time we have no knowledge of these plans and the potential impact on cycling. The Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries has not provided guidance on the reopening of our sector and we understand a committee working on this is several weeks away from a final recommendation. To date we have been guided solely by Public Health Ontario’s guidelines applicable to all residents of Ontario.
We look forward to today’s announcement and will communicate further on its impact to our sport.
