High Performance International Event Update

Cycling Ireland High Performance International Event Update



The global COVID-19 pandemic has cast uncertainty over the remainder of the 2020 International cycling season with the postponement and cancellation of many High-Performance targeted events, not least the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Despite this uncertainty the Cycling Ireland High-Performance squads have remained diligent and focused in their preparations for what could be a condensed second half to the year.


We acknowledge that there are major competitions on the horizon which you may be seeking comment on and await clarification on Cycling Ireland’s stance towards selecting and entering teams and we thank you for your continued understanding and patience throughout this difficult time.


Currently the Government are recommending against non-essential travel outside of Ireland. At present, we are monitoring decisions and proposals from the UCI and UEC on calendars, as well as other event organisers on the progress and scheduling of their planned events. We are continuously engaged in seeking medical advice from our stakeholders, Sport Ireland and Sport Northern Ireland, and are monitoring the wider recommendations from our Governments and the WHO. Until such a time where key information changes or is updated, we are not in a position to make a firm decision on team selection and travel.


In the meantime, we will continue to monitor this situation closely as things unfold and ensure that the relevant preparatory measures are in place so that at the time a decision can be made, we can react quickly to have the Irish teams on the starting line if safe to do so.
