The GP Tell, one of the major under-23 races on the European calendar, has been cancelled because of landslides caused by ongoing bad weather in central Switzerland.

The five-day stage race was due to start today with a prologue in Lucerne, but the course had already been redesigned to avoid roads that were blocked or closed because of the danger of landslides. With no improvement in conditions over the last couple of days, organisers have been forced to abandon the race.
