Redlands Bicycle Classic postponed to 2022

The longest-running stage race in the United States, the Redlands Bicycle Classic, will be interrupted for a second year in a row as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the race to be postponed until 2022, organisers announced on Monday. The race was due to be the first race of the 2021 USA Cycling Pro Road Series.

The race began in 1985 after the 1984 Olympic Games were held in Los Angeles and the US team earned a record number of medals in cycling. It has been a foundation of the early domestic racing scene for 35 years, with local residents providing host housing for most of the riders. Among the Redlands Classic winners are Davis Phinney, Chris Horner, Amber Neben, and Lyne Bessette. The last edition was won by Cory Lockwood and Neben in 2019.
