No alternative for the final in Abu Dhabi

At 17th April we announced Abu Dhabi was not able to confirm their event, because some organizational issues. The last month we have looked for possibilities to have an alternative somewhere in Europe. Unfortunately we did not found any organizer who's able to organize this within 4 or 5 months. So the situation for 2017. We have 4 events, two double and two single. This means 6 races. The 4 best results will count for the final ranking. The final will be in Lugano.

Hopefully we'll see you in Louny (CZE), Bardonecchia (ITA) and Lugano (SUI)

Good news from the European Handbike Circuit. The 2015 EHC Final will take place instead of Spain in Austria on Sunday 18. October.

As always at the EHC Final the EHC champions will be honoured with trophies, Champion Jerseys and prize money.

I am looking forward to spending this time with you and I am eager to see you all again.

EHC Final in Barcelona cancelled!
The EHF Committee is very sorry to announce the cancellation of the final event in Barcelona. Our colleagues in Spain were informed about an extension of the concert of the U2 Group that added 2 shows on 9. and 10. October which clash with the dates of the planned EHC final. Because the concert is very close to the race venue the police cancelled the authorization for the handbike race (too many streets involved, much traffic at this area, many spectators going to the concert, etc.). Other solutions close to Barcelona area seem very difficult to find mainly because of the budget and the course.
The EHF Committee is working in several directions to find a possible and qualitative alternative.

New: The Color of your Helmet Cover will be checked at all EHC events
Athletes and commissaires often couldn’t differ the various classes because of helmets used with wrong or multiple colors. You always must show your helmet when picking up your start number and in the case that your helmet color is not clear identifiable according to your class you have to buy a helmet cover. It costs 5 Euros.

Invitation to the next EHC stage at Rzeszow

Rzeszów, my hometown for the second time will be hosting EHC – The European Handcycling Circuit.

Last year, during the first Polish editions I was lucky to win in front of my own fans. I was proud and happy.

I would like to mention that Rzeszów is not the only place of sport competition among us. For Polish spectators are a unique occasion to meet handbikers and follow their race live. For the town which is sport orientated is a special and important event, and finally for us, competitors it is one more opportunity for built even stronger friendship.

Feel invited to be a part of this inspiring event

Mr. Walter Lisetto is the new Swiss representative of the European Handcycling Federation. He is the chief of the organizing committee of the Lugano handbike race. In 2014 Lugano was the venue of the Finals of the Swiss National Handbike Circuit and also of the Italian Handbike Giro. It is highly probable that in 2016 Lugano will be one of the 2016 EHC stages.

Stay tuned! Shortly the event website will be updated with more information about the registration, selected hotels and hostels, transport facilities, parking, facilities at the venue, and about our sponsors & partners.
