The NK time trial in Emmen (7 October) is canceled this year. The organization does not consider it responsible to have participants travel to Emmen from all over the Netherlands, now that the government has announced measures to contain the spread of the corona virus.
Protecting the health of volunteers and employees also played a role. Moreover, in the center of Emmen it is impossible to keep out the public at the intended finish location. The championship would be held for the categories elite women, elite men and under 23 men.
The original date of June 7 was already released after the outbreak of the corona crisis. The KNWU hoped to announce a new date for the Dutch time trial championship in the short term. The cycling union sat around the table with organizer Jansen Event Sportmanagement and the municipality of Emmen.
A new date was eventually found with Wednesday October 7, but this party is canceled. This means that Jos van Emden (men) and Annemiek van Vleuten (women) remain national champions for a year longer.
