Cycle Derby Sportive 2020 – COVID-19

Cycle Derby Sportive 2020

Hi Everyone

Based on the latest government guidance around COVID-19 and British Cycling, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Cycle Derby Sportive, which was scheduled for 26th April 2020.

We have not taken this decision lightly but due to the rapidly changing situation, we feel it is essential that based on the government’s advice to restrict unnecessary travel and contact with others for the safety and well-being of everyone concerned..

We will automatically transfer your entry into the 2021 date, which has been provisionally set for Sunday 11th April 2021.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this causes and hope that everyone has managed to stay safe and well.

FAQs – COVID-19 – Cancellation of Cycle Derby Sportive 2020

1. Why have you cancelled and not postponed?

We have strongly been recommended by all stakeholders in line with the government’s advice to not run the event during April 2020.  An option would be to postpone the race until the end of the year ie. September / October.   Given that many other races are postponed to that time period, we feel it is unfair to athletes and existing races already scheduled for that time period to rearrange it for that for then.

2.  What happens if I don’t do anything?

You will be automatically entered into the Cycle Derby Sportive in April 2021.  Exact date to be confirmed.

3. Alternative option:-

The provisonal date for 2021 is 11th April 2021.

However, PMA Racing can provide a voucher equivalent to the value of your purchase for any other races that we organise during 2020 and 2021. Please email events@pma-racing.co.uk with your race option and we will email you with an event discount code. 

4. Can I have my money back?

Due to incurring significant costs, and the unprecedented times that we find ourselves in, this cancellation is outside of our control and a suitable alternative has been offered. A refund is not available.
