After days of speculation, the 2020 Seattle Supercross round has been cancelled, the organisers announced today. The news is not unexpected but nonetheless still disappointing.
Earlier today Gov. Jay Inslee prohibited all events over 250 people. As far we understand, this meant Supercoss could either postpone to a later date, run the event without the fans or cancel without rescheduling. Postponement is the option that has been taken.
There has been little information from Feld Entertainment/Supercross other than a brief statement below.
‘In accordance with the governor’s restrictions on group gatherings in King County amid coronavirus concerns, the upcoming Monster Energy Supercross event scheduled on March 28, 2020 has been cancelled.
‘Refund information for fans is located at http://www.centurylinkfield.com/event/monster-energy-supercross-20/
‘The 13th race in the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series will be rescheduled.’
This is the latest in an increasingly long list of motorcycling events that have either been cancelled or postponed – including two rounds of MXGP, Enduro, Trials and MotoGP.
When we hear more on the news we’ll bring it to you here.
