Mallorca, September 11th, 2020. The Mallorca 312, one of the greatest international cycling tourism events, has been canceled by force majoure, as a result of health developments. The cycling race, initially scheduled for April 26 and postponed to October 10, had been adapted with health protocols, which in addition to ensuring all necessary safety measures indicated by the health authorities, included carrying out tests to all participants.
However, the evolution of the international pandemic, has forced many foreign participants to cancel their flights, the closure of the hotels and travel restrictions from their governments; as well as at a local level, where infections have multiplied, have made it impossible to carry out the event. “The growth in the number of cases and the new restrictions make it impossible to guarantee the safety of the participants and the citizens of Mallorca, and that is our number one priority”, says Xisco Lliteras, CEO of the Mallorca 312.
The Organization is preparing the digital platform where participants can access and request a refund or have the option to transfer their registration to the 2021 edition. In addition, they are already working on the calendar of the Milestone Series cycling events for 2021, with venues in Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Mallorca. Registration is scheduled to open this fall.
