WESS Enduro World Championship announce that Red Bull 111 Megawatt, scheduled as round four of the 2020 series, has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Originally scheduled for June 27-28, Poland‰Ûªs largest Hard Enduro will not take place this year.
With the world currently battling to reduce the coronavirus pandemic, WESS Promotion GmbH, together with Red Bull 111 Megawatt event organisers, felt that the safest and most practical decision to take was not to proceed with the race at this time.
Always a favourite for competitors and fans alike, the race annually attracts up to 1,000 competitors during the two-day event at the PGE coal mine near Belchatow, Poland.
‰ÛÏUnfortunately the COVID-19 situation we are all facing has not substantially improved enough to allow us to commit to running Red Bull 111 Megawatt this year." WESS Enduro World Championship Series Manager Winfried Kerschhaggl said.
"For the safety of everyone involved from competitors, spectators, organising staff and those living in the region, we have decided not to proceed as planned.
"We thank the event organisers for trying everything in their power to make it happen and look forward to returning to Poland for this incredible race in the near future.‰Û
