2013 Tour of the North Cancelled

25 Mar 2013
2013 Tour of the North Cancelled

The majority of the race route is passable but some sections are under 15+ feet of snow.  Race Organisers had hoped for a thaw in time for the race to start, but looking at the temperatures for the coming week, there seems little chance of conditions improving.  Many households and businesses are without power and water.  The emergency services are stretched dealing with incidents and adding an International Cycle Race into the mix would be irresponsible.

Snow only began to fall on Friday and has already led to the postponement of several sporting events across Northern Ireland.  

All teams and sponsors will be contacted later today with more details.

Race Organisers are considering a postponement until later in the year and a full announcement will be made in due course.    
Please check Twitter, Facebook and the race website for further details.
