The Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana or the Tour of Valencia, scheduled for February 3-7,  became the latest cycling event to be postponed due to complications from the coronavirus pandemic.

“We will announce new dates soon,” organizers said.

Over 57,000 people have died in Spain of Covid-19 with the country registering over 40,000 new cases in the past 24 hours.

The start of the cycling season has been hit hard with races either postponed or cancelled.

The Tour Down Under and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Race in Australia, the Tour of San Juan in Argentina, the Tour of Colombia as well as the Saudi Tour have all been shelved.
