Fourth round of UCI Nations Cup cancelled

by CyclingTips

The fourth round of the UCI Nations Cup, the XX Coppa Citta set for May 1 in Italy, has been cancelled.

Riders in the last round of the UCI U23 Nations Cup, the ZLM Tour in Holland.

“Due to some unfortunate and unpredictable events, we are forced to cancel the XX City Cup Offida that was to take place on May 1,” said president Gianni Spaccasassi.

“Our commitment to the race remains high. We now focus on our game for novices and juniors on August 20. In 2018 we hope to organise a U23 version.”

The next UCI Nation’s Cup U23 race is the Grand Prix Prießnitz Spa in the Czech Republic, the former Peace Race, from June 1-4. The last event in the series is the Tour de l’Avenir in August.

France currently leads the rankings after the last event, the ZLM Tour, held earlier this month.
