Coronavirus: What Will the Racing Season Look Like?

Coronavirus: What Will the Racing Season Look Like?

With the growing concern over Coronavirus and recent decisions by professional sports leagues suspend play or disallow fans to attend games, I can’t help but wonder what the ramifications will be in cycling.  Typically, I spend a lot of the year traveling out of state to attend races, usually 5-10 events a year.  It’s taken me all over the country and I have met amazing people and visited places I never thought I’d have an opportunity to see.  How will a pandemic affect the racing season?  How will it affect travel?  How will it affect the spectators? What races will be canceled? What about the Paralympics in Tokyo this year?  I have more questions than answers at this point…I think we all do.
