Imola to host 2020 Road World Championships

September 24, 2020 - September 27, 2020 - The Italian city of Imola and the region of Emilia-Romagna will host the 2020 UCI Road World Championships, after the original event scheduled for Switzerland was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.

The awarding of the event to Italy came after Swiss host Aigle-Martigny backed out because of a government ruling limiting mass gatherings amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year’s revised competition programme will feature only elite men’s and women’s categories, eliminating junior and under-23 races.

The races in Imola, which hosted the worlds in 1968, will all begin and end on the city’s auto racing circuit.
