After many weeks of uncertainties about the development of the general situation concerning COVID-19 worldwide, the decision to postpone both the EFPT Lanzarote 2020 and the EFPT Spiaggia Lunga in Italy to 2021 had to be done.
The team of organisation of both events remained positive until the end to be able to stage the EFPT this year. However local restrictions and economical problems led to the final conclusion, that hosting events of that scale won’t be possible in either case.
The government of the Canaries extended the event-ban until October due to the insecurities concerning the spread of the Corona virus and its development within the upcoming months. Local organiser Antxon Otaegui is keen to run an online EFPT contest, which would be the first of its kind. The exact outlines and possibilities of it are still under negotiation, but more information will follow as soon as there is an agreement.
The next EFPT event will be the tow-in only show at the Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine 2020, happening from the 20th – 23rd of August with confirmed riders like Amado Vrieswijk (JP), Yentel Caers (Point-7), Steven Van Broeckhoven (Gunsails) and many more.
Negotiations about the possibility to run an EFPT event at the DAM-X 2020 are still under way and both sides are working on a solution to make it happen and be able to award the European Champion 2020.
