The director of the Volta a Catalunya Rubén Peris thinks it will be difficult to have the race in 2020.

Despite the optimism that the race organisation had some weeks ago about celebrating its 100th edition later in the year, with the indefinite cancellation of all the calendar its director now looks at the situation with different eyes. The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) already stated that it will give priority to Grand Tours and Monuments when the season restarts.

"Back then, the expectations were different," said Peris to Spanish news agency EFE. "Now many races are being annuled and I am afraid that many more will follow. Some weeks ago we said that maybe we could have a different date, but right now I see very difficult that you can find new dates for the entire calendar."

The director of the Spanish race thinks that one-day races have better chances of getting a new date, but that it would be very difficult to do stage competitions too late in the year. "Who can do a stage race in October or November?," Peris affirmed. "One-day races could very well be rescheduled, but for the ones of one week that will be extremely difficult."
