FISE Cancels Pu Yang Event

In the midst of the coronavirus situation in China, FISE and the UCI have cancelled the World Cup event scheduled to take place early May in Pu Yang. Here's their official word - 

"Bearing in mind the potential scale of the epidemic and the data provided on confirmed clinical cases, there are justifiable grounds for postponing all competitions until such time as epidemiological data are more reassuring.  The UCI has taken the decision with the Chinese Cycling Association to postpone cycling events originally scheduled for April and May. On March 15, the UCI will communicate the new dates of competitions to be organised later in the season, as well as the list of events that will be cancelled."

The Pu Yang event was the final World Cup event before the 2020 Olympic cut off date, so this event held a high level of importance for many of the riders. While this is unfortunate, it certainly seems that erring on the side of caution is in everyone's best interest.
