Velothon Wales: Cancelled in 2019 and beyond, organisers say
Written by Dan Williams on 22nd November 2018
Velothon Wales will not continue after organisers have confirmed there are no plans to continue with the event.
Over 8,000 riders participated in the 2018 Wales Velothon, along with an estimated 40,000 amateur riders.
However, in a statement, race organisers say that they have been “unable to find a sustainable model for future events.”
In the absence of Wales, Berlin, Hamburg and Australia’s Sunshine Coast will continue as Velethon events.
Velothon Wales is known to be a single-day road bicycle race held annually between May and July in Wales, United Kingdom. It is part of the UCI Europe Tour as a 1.1 race.
An earlier tweet from Velthon says:
