The FIS Junior Ski Cross and Snowboard Cross World Championships 2020, originally slated to take place in Saint-Lary, France, from March 19-25, have been cancelled due to restrictions imposed by the French government over concerns regarding the Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19.
While the region of Saint-Lary is not reported to be affected by this virus, the development of the situation and its potential impact upon the arrival of young competitors remains unclear.
Also, in order to protect the interests, health and the safety of the athletes registered for this event, where more than 200 athletes from 22 countries and 4 continents were expected, the Local Organizing Committee of the FIS Junior Worlds has decided to cancel the event immediately.
In light of this, it seems unlikely that a replacement venue can be found at this late stage of the season. However, an announcement will be made at a later date should a solution arise.
