The FIM has announced the postponement of the first three rounds of the 2020 FIM Trial World Championship.
The coronavirus pandemic has already forced the cancellation or rescheduling of a number of trial events and now the FIM has moved early to postpone three rounds of the series, including the Andorra round which was still three months away.
It’s a concern that this could be the start of many events being called off for the early summer months.
The TrialGP Czech Republic – Sokolov (CZE / 23-24 May), TrialGP Japan – Motegi (JPN/06-07 June) and the TrialGP Andorra – Sant Julià (AND/20-21 June) are the three rounds postponed. At this time, that leaves Italy on 4-5 July as the opening round, followed by Tong on 10-12 July.
The FIM says all parties are currently evaluating if it will be possible to reschedule the events later this season.
