Important information regarding the FEI European Endurance Championships for Juniors and Young Riders in Oviedo (ESP)
Grave concern was expressed following the Trial Run in Oviedo earlier this month when it was learnt that the Championships were due to clash with a large national cycling competition.
It was reported that there would be considerable risk for competitors when sharing tracks with the cyclists. Likewise for the crew and back up vehicles. It was also reported that there was a severe lack of accommodation available during the time of the Championships.
With all this in mind the FEI had submitted a request to the Organising Committee to consider a date change to avoid the clash.
We have now received confirmation from the OC that the event has been postponed by 2 weeks. The new dates for the Championships are:
26 - 28 September 2008
Whilst the FEI tries, at all costs, to avoid date changes of competitions, it was felt, under these extreme circumstances, that the risk of having the two events at the same time was too great not to have a change of date.
We would ask all parties involved to kindly note this change of date and inform all persons affected.
