Frozen ground has forced Paul Edmondson to postpone the second round of the British Extreme Enduro Championship this weekend, February 3, at Cowm Quarry.
With low temperatures affecting the UK this week and the relatively high location of the venue at Cowm Quarry, the frozen ground runs too much of a risk to competitors.
The event will be re-scheduled for one month later on March 3 when the likes of Graham Jarvis, Jonny Walker, Paul Bolton, Jonno Richardson and Travis Teasedale will be back on for the second round of the 2019 series.
Posting on Facebook this afternoon, Edmondson explained:
“Unfortunately, upon arrival at Cowm today we will have to cancel this weekend’s event. We have inspected the track most of the day and although the snow is ok the fact remains that it’s too icy underneath.
“Therefore, to be correct and not cause potential injuries, its safer not to run. We hope you all understand and the new date. We have tried not to clash with other dates and events best we can. It’s not a case of the snow as the road is ok to the venue, however the forecast now says minus tonight which will cause us problems.
“Once again sorry to you all and hope to see you on March the 3rd @ Cowm.”Jon PearsonEnduro21 Editor and Bike Testerjon.firstname.lastname@example.org
