The 2020 UCI Road World Championships has confirmed its complete schedule and maintains so far its original dates.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has approved the events programme for the 2020 Road World Championships that are set to be held between the 20th and the 27th of September in Aigle-Martigny, Switzerland. The cycling governing body is maintaining so far the original dates of the event despite the coronavirus crisis.

Although the cycling calendar is on pause at the moment due to the pandemic of the Covid-19 virus and the UCI is trying hard to accommodate all the date of the most relevant races, the World Championships are still on schedule. On Friday, March 27, the UCI approved the events programme for the competition.

"The approval of the events programme is an important step and especially symbolic given the current situation," explained Alexandre Debons, co-president of the organising committee and sports manager. "The outline of the 2020 UCI Road World Championships of Aigle-Martigny has now been announced.

"Our objective is to offer the best of sport as well as to protect the environment and quality of life of the local population with races finishing early. This last point is especially important for us."

The Men Elite Individual Time Trial will take place on Sunday, September 20, while the Women's fight against the clock will be on Monday, September 21 in Aigle. The Team Time Trial Mixed Relay will be on Wednesday, September 23, in Martigny, and the Women Elite Road Race will be on Saturday, September 26 and the Men's will be held the next day, on the 27th of September.
