Organisers of the Maryland Cycling Classic, set for September 5 this year, announced they will delay the inaugural edition of the one-day UCI ProSeries race for another year.

It is the second time the US 1.Pro race has hit the reset button, originally planned to take place September 6, 2020 until the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Organisers said there were still concerns “due to post-COVID conditions not aligning with the standards necessitated for a world-class event.”
