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.
The overall ranking of the EHC Championship has been updated
The 2015 championship is not yet decided in some classes, and let’s see what there is still that way.

Licence and Written Confirmation needed from your Cycling Federation for EHC races at Fossano!
Due to a very recent litigation with an Italian organiser, the Italian Cycling Federation (FCI) took the decision to follow the UCI rules, much more in deep than last years.
On the base of those circumstances, the foreigner Athletes must be authorized by the respective National Federation in order to have an extension of the insurance connected to the National Licence.
The procedure is very easy, you just have to inform your National Federation Paracycling Office in written, saying that you will race in Italy, Fossano in a race listed by the FCI.
Please ask for a written confirmation so you can show the document to the Italian Commissaires during the licence verification.
We are very sorry for this small difficulty, so we would thank you for the cooperation.
