A very successful Championship

What a lovely day we've had at the European Championship! Riders from seven countries competed at the site of Blom Slipcontrol in Etten-Leur. On Saturday we had beautiful weather, on Sunday it started out ok, overcast and high temperature, but after some 20 riders sudden heavy showers changed the race completely. Some riders had a serious disadvantage because of this, most of them made up for that in the second heat. 


Top 3 overall:

1) Kristian Eekhof (NL) - 2:00.87

2) Bart Hoste (BE) - 2:01.15

3) Jiří Schovanec (CZ) - 2:01.61

The European Championship of Moto Gymkhana

In May 2015, we had the first European Championship of Moto Gymkhana. 70 riders were competing from 9 countries, records were set, friends were made, and everyone had a lot of fun. What's more important, we learned a lot. Riders learned from other riders, spectators learned from watching the fastest riders of Europe, and organizers learned about organizing a major Moto Gymkhana event.

Before the championship had ended, discussions started about a 2016 event. Riders texted to the organization from their car, while still on their way home, about “will there be a championship next year, and where will it be?”
The championship was a major success, so there was no doubt that it would have a follow up. After ample discussion between the organizers in the UK, the Netherlands, Russia and Poland, the idea came up to have the 2016 event in the Netherlands, again. One argument brought up was that the Netherlands is more or less central for the majority of riders. Another was that the Dutch now have the experience of organizing at least one championship. This puts a challenge onto the riders of the various countries: if you want your country to organize the 2017 European Championship of Moto Gymkhana, you need to win this year. Or at least, be the first non-Dutch rider.

May 28 and 29, the game is on!
