Cancellation of the Mercedes-Benz 2020 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup round
In September 2020, the world’s best pilots were once again set to compete on the tracks in Les Gets, offering the public a show as exceptional as last year’s World Cup.
In this unprecedented situation due to the Covid-19 crisis, the consequences in the mountain bike calendar are numerous, and cancellations are sometimes inevitable. This is the case of Les Gets which, in agreement with the UCI and the French Cycling Federation (FFC), is also forced to give up. For health and safety reasons, the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, which was scheduled to take place from 18 to 20 September 2020, has been cancelled.
This is a logical decision in view of the drastic measures that are difficult to apply due to the global situation, but a huge disappointment for Les Gets and its inhabitants. However, everyone remains more motivated than ever for the future, as the resort remains committed to future major international events, notably the 2021 World Cup and the 2022 Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Championships.
