On Sunday, October 11, Gieten will be the setting for the first round of the Superprestige cyclocross.
Due to the tightened corona rules in the Netherlands, Gieten threatened to become the next domino stone, after the BinckBank Tour had already suffered (and “one njet” is also taken into account for the Amstel Gold Race).
But the organization continues, “albeit in a considerably slimmed-down form”, it sounds. “Without an audience, without guests and no youth matches. The program will now only contain the matches for elite women / U23 and elite men / U23.”
“Due to the corona measures and the many travel restrictions, a choice had to be made and it was either organizing two competitions for professional athletes or not organizing at all.”
“In addition, it was important for the organization to offer as much protection as possible to the large group of volunteers involved in the organization.”
“For the organization it is clear that the health of everyone (riders, guides, TV crew, officials and above all the volunteers) must be priority 1. Hence this rigorous decision, albeit with enormous pain in the heart.”
