The 2021 editions of the BEMER Cyclassics in Hamburg, Germany and the Tour of Guangxi and Tour of Chongming Island in China have been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the UCI announced on Wednesday.

The cancellation means that the UCI WorldTour and UCI Women’s WorldTour lose two more races apiece from their schedules. The BEMER Cyclassics was due to take place on August 22, while the Tour of Guangxi was due to bring the curtain down on the men’s WorldTour from October 14-19.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
