NICE, France: The Nice-Cote d’Azur triathlon scheduled for October 1 and 2 has been cancelled amid security concerns, the French Triathlon Federation announced on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Security required for the event which would bring together 1,200 people would require “too great a commitment of public order forces already mobilised otherwise”, the federation said in a statement. After the Bastille Day truck attack in the Riviera resort in July that claimed 85 lives, a number of events have been cancelled, including the European road cycling championships from September 14 to 18.
