OFFICIAL STATEMENT

The third edition of MMR Asturias Bike Race is cancelled

The organization of MMR Asturias Bike Race has taken the decision to cancel the third edition of the competition scheduled from July 2- 5, due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

In the current situation of uncertainty, we must be rigorous and aware of the circumstances, and we are forced to make difficult decisions. Thinking of each and every one of you and analyzing a calendar full of sports events, we are convinced that the decision taken to cancel the event and hold it in 2021 with complete normality is the best option for everyone.

Thus, MMR Asturias Bike Race will debut in the capital of the Principality in 2021 with a route already designed and completely renovated.

This decision was taken jointly with Royal Spanish Cycling Federation, Oviedo and Siero City Councils and the main sponsor, MMR, following the protocol of the Spanish health authorities, governments and the International Cycling Union (UCI), which a few days ago temporarily suspended all competitions, (https://www.uci.org/inside-uci/press-releases/uci-decisions-concerning-cycling-disciplines-other-than-road-faced-with-the-coronavirus), considering that the competition is part of the international calendar of MTB stage races.

We are aware of the inconvenience that this measure can cause, and it has not been an easy decision to make given the current circumstances, so we appreciate your understanding and encourage you to participate later.

In this way, we provide you with different options to meet again in 2021 and enjoy mountain biking and a few days of tourism together in the natural paradise of Asturias.

All bikers registered for the MMR Asturias Bike Race 2020 will automatically keep their registration for the next edition. Those who cannot attend in 2021, can transfer their current registration to another Bike Race event organized by Octagon Esedos to be held in 2020 (La Rioja Bike Race presented by Pirelli or Catalunya Bike Race) paying the difference in price on the registration if necessary, or ask for a full refund of the registration fee and the temporary license before June 4th by sending an e-mail with your personal data to inscripciones@asturiasbikerace.com.

All additional services contracted (Endura products and Sportograf service) will also be refunded.

For doubts or queries, you can do so in this same e-mail and each case will be analyzed in particular.
