Organisers have cancelled the Vuelta a San Juan for the second year in a row due to rising COVID-19 cases across the world. 

Local officials and race organisers announced on Monday that rising cases left them no option but to suspend the race as an international event, in order to keep everyone safe. However, organisers are still considering whether to host the Vuelta a San Juan in 2022 as domestic event with solely local teams.
