The European Football (Soccer) Championships currently being held in Switzerland and Austria are having an effect on cycling. The Austrian national time trial championships, scheduled for Saturday, June 28, have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for sometime in September.
"Unfortunately the officials couldn't agree to our full road closure. Because of the Euro 2008, there are not enough security personnel," said federation general secretary Rudolf Massak.
The road races will be carried out on Sunday, June 29, as planned.
