Canada's oldest internationally-sanctioned stage race, the Tour de Beauce, is the latest event to postpone due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Scheduled for June 17-21, this will be the first time the event has not taken place during its traditional mid-June slot since it began in 1986.
In a statement, the organization said:
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Tour de Beauce postpones its 35th edition. The event, which brings together riders from more than 20 countries for each edition, cannot be prepared and cannot be held under the conditions prevailing on the dates initially scheduled (June 17 to 21). The organization is currently considering an alternative date with its partners before postponing to 2021. A final decision will be announced very soon.
The Tour de Beauce organization also has the Elite, Junior and Para-cycling Canadian Road Championships scheduled for June 25-28. A decision will be made later on this event in collaboration with Cycling Canada.
