07 Nov Cancellation of The Race and the E-bike Challenge, postponement of the Supermoto Trackdays
At the announcement of the organization of “The Race”, the only Supermoto race of the year, the riders were very enthusiastic, and the registrations were going well. Unfortunately, the evolution of the sanitary situation linked to Covid-19, the saturation of the hospitals and the recent measures to fight against the spread of the virus didn’t allow anymore a decent organization of this event on the Circuit Jules Tacheny.
The circuit of Mettet, in consultation with the FMB, has therefore decided, after a long reflection, to cancel The Race and the NRJ E-Bike Challenge, moreover it has also been decided to postpone the Supermoto Trackdays after December 13 included.
Freddy Tacheny, President of the Royal Union Motor of Entre Sambre-et-Meuse, would have liked to gather the Supermoto and quad riders one last time in 2020 :
“We sincerely hoped to be able to organize at least one event this year, specifically for drivers. The Race would have been the only Supermoto race of the year, a breathing window in a difficult period at more than one point. Taking into account the explosive evolution of the pandemic in our country, in consultation with the FMB, we have decided, with great sadness, to cancel this event as well as the NRJ E-Bike Challenge.”
The Supermoto Trackdays training sessions are also postponed until after December 13. The next dates will be updated on this website according to the evolution of health measures.
