Tour de l'Ain 2020
U17 Tour de l’Ain cancelled
8 May 2020
We were happy to present yesterday (07/05) the maintenance, on new dates, of the professional event of the Tour de l’Ain – Solimut Mutuelle de France, we are sorry to announce you today the cancellation of the event intended for young cadets.
All the strict hygiene measures that the Organising Committee will apply in August were not in place for the youngest cadets for 3 days.
2020 will remain an exceptional year. The cadet event is important for the Organising Committee. It represents the future and the Tour de l’Ain must remain an “event for all”. We are looking forward to seeing the cadets in 2021.
A special thought to the partners who were involved in this event: Cycles MV, Intermarché Servas, ŠKODA Bourg-en-Bresse Credit Agricole Centre-est.
Press release from Ludovic DUBOIS – Race Director Tour de l’Ain Cadets :
“Following a meeting of the Tour de l’Ain Organizing Committee I have decided to cancel the 2020 edition. Your disappointment will surely be as great as ours but in the face of the health crisis we are facing, wisdom and prudence dictate that I have to cancel this 2020 edition of the Tour de l’Ain Cadets. The efforts made to maintain it were carried out without moderation by the volunteers in charge of the organization. Alas, this work cannot succeed in order to preserve the health of all. It is indeed this last health point which prevails over the rest if we wish to take advantage of our splendid playground that the department of Ain offers us and share again this festive sports event of the Tour de l’Ain Cadets during the future editions.
I know I can count on all of you and your support!
I would also like to thank Christian PERICHON who helped me to make this wise decision. »
