The RFEC suspends all national competitions for two weeks as a result of the coronavirus
17th Aiztondo Klasika
March 15: Asteasu – Zizurkil (143.5 km)
The Aiztondo Klasika is adjourned sine die. The third round of the 2020 Spanish Cup, scheduled to take place on Sunday 15 March, will not be held as a result of the preventive measures, containment and recommendations set to stop the spread of the coronavirus by the authorities.
The Spanish Cycling Federation, the Basque Cycling Federation and the Guipuzcoa Cycling Federation have confirmed this initiative in the early afternoon of this Thursday 12th March.
The measure will not only be applied during this coming weekend, but also during the following one, something that also affects the celebration of the fourth race of the competition: the Ontur Spring Grand Prix (Albacete).
The full statement of the RFEC:
“In view of the evolution of the situation generated by the transmission of the COVID-19, and in accordance with the preventive measures and recommendations expressed by the Ministry of Health and the government authorities, we inform you that the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation has taken the decision, together with the organizers, to suspend/defer* all cycling events on the national calendar scheduled for the next two weekends (March 14-15 and March 21-22) in order to ensure the health of athletes, coaches, referees, clubs and assistants and thus prevent the spread of COVID-19”.
