Statement regarding 2020 UEC European Road Championships



The 2020 UEC European road championships are due to go ahead on 24th – 28th August in Plouay, France. The pandemic and resulting reduction in racing and competition, along with restrictions on travel and training, mean the necessary decisions on attendance by riders and staff have presented a significant challenge.

As the virus continues to develop in Ireland and abroad, the current stance of the Irish Government is to continue to avoid all non-essential overseas travel. In accordance with this advice, which is aimed towards protecting public health, Cycling Ireland is adopting a cautious and pragmatic approach and will not be sending any rider or staff member living or based in Ireland to the 2020 UEC European Road Championships.

In the case that this event continues to go ahead as scheduled, Cycling Ireland will only consider riders who are either World Tour Professional or who are Sport Ireland carded for road disciplines (both men and women) and are currently based on mainland Europe.

Should it be necessary, Cycling Ireland will arrange for staff support of riders from providers based offshore/in mainland Europe.

Cycling Ireland will register a minimal number of riders, with a focus on the Time Trial format, and only those from the categories above will be considered for attendance. Those riders who are registered may accept a race entry in an opt-in capacity.

While this is of great disappointment to all concerned, the health and safety of riders and staff is our primary concern and we will continue to work under the public health advice provided by government.
