Junior & U23 Track European Championsips moved to Fiorenzuola

It will be the Italian velodrome in Fiorenzuola d’Arda that will host, from 8 to 13 October, the Track European Championships for the Juniors and Under 23 categories, which were initially scheduled in Forlì.

Located in Emilia-Romagna, for almost 25 years Fiorenzuola has been one of the most active velodromes on an international level. It has hosted World Cup races, Juniors World Championships and Juniors/Under 23 European Championships and in particular the “Sei Giorni delle Rose” that was raced for the twenty-third time last August.

The continental event will welcome riders from 25 countries, who will compete in six days of races with 44 titles on offer, equally divided into 22 for the Men’s categories (Juniors and Under 23) and 22 for the Women’s (Juniors and Under 23).

In such a unusual season, the Union Européenne de Cyclisme would like to thank the organisers in Forlì for having done everything in their power to organise the Championships and the organisers in Fiorenzuola d’Arda for the passion and commitment they have shown to prepare to host one of the most important events on the European cycling calendar. We would also like to thank all the National Federations and riders for the way in which they have dealt with this unprecedented and unpredictable season.

The Elite Track European Championships have also been confirmed. They will be held in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) from 11 to 15 November 2020.
