Isle of Wight Diamond Races Postponed Until 2022 :
It is hardly surprising but the Isle of Wight Diamond Races have been postponed until 2022 due to the ongoing Covid 19 Pandemic.
The event was due to launch in October 2021 but with ongoing travel restrictions, uncertainty around vaccines and when the restrictions are likely to lift the organisers have made the unfortunate but understandable decision to postpone the event.
Founder of the event and team leader Paul Sandford told bikesportnews.com: “We have got all the permissions in place from the Isle of Wight council and the ACU and we know what we need to do.
“These include traffic management plans, course preparation and managing teams to get on and off the island. So there’s a lot of money to be spent. But the big unknown we have got is covid so given the challenges we have we took the decision to move it to 2022.”
Coronavirus just keep on adding to list of events that have to be postponed and or cancelled and the Diamond Races inaugural event is the latest to fall victim.
