Race organizers in Zürich still haven't entirely given up hope that they will have to cancel this year's Züri Metzgete, as they had previously announced. The search for a new main sponsor is continuing.
"Discussions are ongoing with possible sponsors, and we hope that things will change soon," Michael Ausfeld of RV Zürich, which owns the rights to the race, told the Swiss press agency SI. "Our organization is still ready and would be in the position of putting on the race."
The ProTour race, which is scheduled for October 7, has been held every year since 1910.
