Over the past few months the Ontario Cycling Association has been working with organizers to provide racing opportunities during the 2020 CX Season. This involved developing creative racing formats, ensuring compliance with provincial and regional restrictions, and implementing strict safety protocols relating COVID-19. Unfortunately, despite tremendous efforts by a number of organizers, a combination of issues relating to securing venue permits, capacity/financial concerns, and rising COVID-19 cases have resulted in too many challenges to overcome. As a result, organizers have had to make the difficult decision to cancel their planned events for 2020.
The OCA is fully supportive of these decisions and recognizes the difficulty and uncertainty, involved in hosting events during this time. We thank all those involved for the efforts put forward and look forward working with our great Ontario organizers in creating a full season of cyclocross races in 2021.
