UCI (Italy) - Press Release: The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is pleased to announce that it has awarded the organisation of the 2020 UCI Road World Championships to Imola. The world-renowned Italian city and its region Emilia-Romagna will host the event from 24 to 27 September.
The awarding of this event follows the cancellation on 12 August of the Aigle-Martigny 2020 UCI Road World Championships in Switzerland, which meant the UCI needed to find a new organiser very quickly.
2020 UCI Road World Championships Programme:
- Thursday 24 September: Women Elite individual time trial
- Friday 25 September: Men Elite individual time trial
- Saturday 26 September: Women Elite road race
- Sunday 27 September: Men Elite road race.
UCI President David Lappartient declared:
“I am convinced that the 2020 UCI Road World Championships in Imola will allow us all, despite the difficult current situation, to witness a great sporting festival. I invite you all to follow this event in Italy, true cycling territory, on one of the most challenging circuits in the history of the UCI Road World Championships. I look forward to watching these races which promise to be magnificent.”
