2024 Maryland Cycling Classic derailed by complications from Baltimore bridge collapse, event canceled

The Maryland Cycling Classic, the highest-ranked international cycling race in the United States, will not take place this year. According to BikeRace officials decided to postpone the event until 2025 due to ongoing complications from the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in March in Baltimore.

Preparing for its third edition, the Maryland Cycling Classic is a UCI 1.Pro race that attracts a truly international, world-class field of riders to the United States, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the last Amgen Tour of California in 2019. Previous editions have seen a WorldTour podium, with Belgian Sep Vanmarcke (Israel-Premier Tech) winning the 2022 edition and Lidl-Trek’s Mattias Skjelmose winning last year’s event.
