    With regards to the 01Sept08 (nominated entry) cutoff date for the second CoC.

    This date is 11 weeks before the actual event. (with Definite Entries being 5 weeks b/f the event)

    The corresponding date for the 2006 Achen WEC was Nominated entries at 5 weeks b/f the event. (with Achen Definite Entries being 1 week b/f the event)

    Moving the Nominated Entries deadline by 6 weeks has effected the opportunity for riders from 11 countries to obtain their CoCs for 2008 WEC at CEI*** 160km rides which are scheduled between 1Sept08 and 14Oct08. These countries are:

    ESP, URU, CHI, POL, FRA, RSA, BRA, CZE, BOT, JPN, and USA

    That is, if the Nominated Entries where required in the normal 5 week advance, there would be 11 events at which riders/horses would have the opportunity to obtain their second CoC.
