‘S-HERTOGENBOSCH – The organization of the European Cyclo-Cross Championships in’ s-Hertogenbosch has decided, in consultation with the relevant authorities, to remove the junior categories (for boys and girls) from the program. The European Championship is scheduled for 7 and 8 November on the Autotron Rosmalen site.
The reason for this decision is that these athletes, given their age, do not have the required top sport status. In addition, some European countries have recently decided that this age group (-19) is not allowed to practice sport in competition.
This means that on Saturday, November 7, the elite women and the underage men will be leaving and on Sunday, November 8, the elite men and the underage women. In the morning there is always room for training on the course. Earlier, the organization had to decide not to let the planned masters leave as a result of the measures to contain the COVID-19.
The program now looks like this:
Saturday, November 7:
09.00 – 12:00 Official training
12:30 – 13.25 Men U23
14:00 – 15:00 Women Elite
Sunday November 8:
09:00 – 11.30 Official training
12.00 – 12.50 Women U23
12.50 – 13.15 Official training
13:30 – 14:35 Men Elite
