July 01, 2015 (Ottawa, ON) – The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and Cycling Canada are disappointed to confirm that the planned 2015 UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup round scheduled in Montreal, Canada, in September is cancelled.
Despite final efforts to secure the significant government funding necessary to host a high-level World Cup event, this has not been received in time to comfortably proceed. With teams and suppliers needing to plan ahead, it was felt that the decision not to proceed for 2015 had to be made at this time.
It is the plan and desire of both the UCI and Cycling Canada to hold the event in the future. The intention is to secure the necessary financial support prior to accepting the event on the calendar, and then deliver a top-level competition in Canada.
We regret any inconvenience this decision has caused for the teams and athletes who were looking forward to participating in the Montreal World Cup.
