The 2020 edition of Shimano 24 Hours is confirmed for 22nd and 23rd August, on the Le Mans circuit.
The French cycling federation has just announced the normal resumption of cycling activities according to the press release received this morning.
The “5000 people gatherings ” french rule could be relaxed on 10th July by the French Government. Otherwise this 2020 edition would take place “without spectator”, only the 2600 riders, their staff members, as well as organisation and partners could access to the Le Mans circuit. The morning event “La Matinale Le Maine Libre” would be canceled and those who ordered this option would be refunded at the end of July.
Since the event’s creation in 2009, CGO Événement’s mission has never changed, Romain Gasnal says: “guaranteeing the best level of comfort and security for participants in our events, thanks to a rigorous organisation and passionate teams. You can count on us to adapt our organisation to the context, whether it’s site layouts or flow management, and we are counting on riders to show understanding and flexibility. Together, we will act responsibly to contribute to the return of “living together” and to the expression of passion for cycling.”
The closing of registrations has been postponed to July 7 to give team leaders more time to complete on line their riders’ names.
