Organizers of Tour Down Under, Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and Harold Sun Tour have confirmed that they will be canceling their events in 2022 due to health practices still in place in Australia.

We still have to wait to see professional pilot Australia again. Similar to the decision made at the start of the 2021 season, the three races on the UCI World Tour Calendar, organized in the Southern Hemisphere, will not take place in 2022. Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Racing, which competed on the roads of the state of Victoria, has confirmed the cancellation of the next edition. The reason is to maintain strict isolation measures imposed by Australian authorities on people who want to cross the border. Two events that were about to start the elite season of professional cycling. “We have fully explored all the possibilities,” Hitaf Rashid, managing director of events South Australia, said in a statement. But unfortunately the border closures and isolation requirements of the more than 400 people who make up the international teams were still very difficult to overcome. “

Echoing the announcement made by the organizers of Tour Town Under and Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Racing, the Herald Sun Tour confirmed their plans for 2022. The following February, the organizers of the event, centered on the state of Victoria and the city of Melbourne, announced in a press release.

According to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the recent announcements by Australian authorities that it wants to reopen its borders without the isolation imposed “in the coming weeks” will make life easier for organizers in the coming months.
