PMBA Enduro, CV19 update 20th March
Moving forward to the rest of 2020
The season is now scheduled to start 11/12th July with Graythwaite, and then onto Llangollen in August. These are our biggest 2 events of the year and these are also the 2 we will do our upmost to run on whatever dates are available. If we have to reschedule these again, they will almost certainly be for the dates we have in the calendar for other rounds at the expense of those rounds. This might seem an odd thing to announce now, but I work on being as transparent as possible so you can all plan ahead. These are the 2 biggest events we were planning to run anyway, and while it was heartbreaking to cancel the grassroots events and especially the free kids event that was aimed at pre-teens and trying to develop a love for biking and racing in the next generation, maybe this year isn’t the best for starting out and the time instead to feed the hunger of the hardened and experienced racers who will be lost without their events happening. We sincerely hope we can run all events left on the calendar and while the government’s declaration of “we can have this sorted in 12 weeks” would mean racing continuing in mid June, so much has changed in the last 12 days that nobody really knows where we will be in 12 weeks let alone an ex-chemist turned race organsier like myself.
I would hope that how we are dealing with the disruption to rounds 1-3 will give you the confidence to plan to race the rounds left on the calendar, knowing that if they are not possible we will endeavour to give the same service if there are more disruptions later in the year.
