triathlon brand icon imageCycling: The UCI has postponed events until further notice or, more correctly “Suspension of all classifications for all events on the UCI International Calendar, across all disciplines, from 15 March 2020 and until further notice but at least until 3 April 2020.

Triathlon: On a similar vein, World Triathlon announce that “All events in the World Triathlon and Continental calendars will be immediately postponed until further notice. ITU strongly recommends all affiliated national federations to extend the measures as well in their territories, to avoid spreading the virus.” adding further that rankings “are immediately frozen, effective from Monday 16th March 2020.” The glimmer of hope is that “World Triathlon will continue working during this time to try to reallocate the events after 30th April”

Triathlon: Challenge Events have made a more definitive announcement in the sense that they have provided the dates of rescheduled races. They are all rescheduled to September 2020 or later (here).
