Canada’s biggest professional road cycling series, BC Superweek, will not be returning this year, organizers have announced.

The cycling series will return in 2023, according to a release.

“The events that make up BC Superweek require significant planning and resources, and as communities continue to navigate the impacts of the pandemic, there is still a great deal of uncertainty in regards to event sponsorship and international travel for race participants,” the organizers said.

“These hurdles make it difficult for race organizers to make the essential preparations to host a BC Superweek series this July.”
