Tour of Nigeria cancelled

As a result of general repairs of all major roads nationwide by the Federal Ministry of Works, the UCI 2.2 Maltonic International Tour of Nigeria has had to be postponed, with no set date fixed for the future. The recent UCI 2.2 Tour du Cameroun was also the victim of similarly poor organisation, with several stages cancelled after just the first stage completed, but eventually revived itself three days later.

The tour was scheduled to begin this Monday, March 14, and run through till March 25. African website reports that the secretary of the Cycling Federation of Nigeria (CFN), Mr Olumide Bamiduro, intends to meet with the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to ascertain exact dates on the finish of the road repairs on particular routes, to enable the 10-day event to be rescheduled.
