After careful consideration and a thorough review of the Coronavirus COVID-19 situation, we have decided to reschedule FISE Hiroshima. ?
Our primary concern is always the safety and well-being of the athletes, fans and partners who are involved in our events and given the situation as it is today, we feel postponement of the event is the best option.
We will be releasing more information in the coming days – thank you for your understanding FISE Family! ? -FISE

“I can’t say that I was surprised, since mass events are canceled all over the world in Russia. I am a little upset because the trip to Hiroshima is one of the most exciting in a year, but I will be able to train a little longer and spend more time with my family.” –Elizaveta Posadskikh
“I expected it, due to the problem of traveling to a country so close to where the problem was generated. In Spain they have canceled all events, in Europe they are starting to cancel many too.” –Teresa Fernandez-Miranda
“I am relieved that it would not really be good to travel with the virus, it is better that we all do not take care.” –Queensaray
“Hi ok… I was starting to get really anxious about if the event was going to happen or not. I saw other events being canceled and just wanted an answer. Either way, I was ready to go… it’s nice that it’s postponed now because even though I’m healthy and not scared to get sick, it’s all the other people that I could potentially infect so it’s good.” –Cory Coffey
“I’m not shocked about the situation since Germany already closed schools, university’s and more, so I was hoping that we don’t have to travel to Japan. I’m really sad about all the changes because of the corona virus, but I guess it’s the best decision Fise / UCI could make.” –Lara Lessmann
“I think it’s a smart move, I don’t think riders should sacrifice their health or getting quarantined any more than they already have with some of the current restrictions implemented by their nations at this time.” –Nina Buitrago
“Pretty bummed to see it’s cancelled, though not surprised. It makes sense of course, but this whole Corona thing is really taking the fun away this year! Hope it’s resolved soon.” –Nikita Ducarroz
