The organisation of the World Championships of Aigle-Martigny 2020 has announced new measures due to the Covid-19 pandemic but so far maintains the event.

The committee of the 2020 World Championships is adhering to the measures that have been advised by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and the Swiss national and local governments to fight against the spread of the coronavirus. These measures have the objective to reduce the risks for public health and its employees.

"The organising committee wants to be exemplary and has therefore cancelled all meetings, conferences presentations, representations, and all other organising activities to focus on teleworking for its members and all staff and providers, reminding every one to adhere to the rules stipulated by the Federal Council and cantons," said the organisation through a statement.

The organisation of the Aigle-Martigny championships -who are still set to be held between the 20th and the 27th of Septembre- is also postponing the Gala dinner and the general rehearsal. "A test event was scheduled on 28 April 2020 for the UCI Road World Championships during the first stage of he 2020 Tour de Romandie, which unfortunately was cancelled.

"This would have been an opportunity for professional riders to discover the circuit and for all those involved in the organisation to have a proper general rehearsal. A gala dinner, for all of our sponsors, was also planned. Obviously all events linked to the Tour de Romandie will now not be taking place. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and are in permanent contact with the Swiss political and health authorities and the UCI, and will continue to take the necessary measures in view of the unprecedented situation affecting Switzerland and the rest of the world."
