HÀ NỘI — The Return to the Countryside Cycling Tournament, also known as the Gạo Hạt Ngọc Trời Cup, has been cancelled due to ongoing fears surrounding the potential spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the event’s organising board has announced.
This international event was scheduled to take place in May.
The tournament, which has been organised by the An Giang provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and sponsored by Lộc Trời Group for many years, is one of the most prestigious cycling events of the country.
Last year, the event attracted 13 domestic and two foreign teams, competing in 10 stages across 772km. — VNS
