Koksijde Cyclo-Cross World Cup cancelled due to storms

The Koksijde round of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup has been cancelled due to poor weather conditions and concerns over rider safety.

The event was to be held on Sunday but due to storms and high winds all categories of the event were cancelled.

Earlier this morning officials decided to cancel the junior and U23 races (men), with a decision to be made on the elite men’s and women’s races set for later in the day. However within less than an hour of the first decision the entire race schedule was cancelled with the UCI taking to Twitter to confirm the news.
