With safety in mind, a range of scenarios were discussed and reviewed internally. Still, it is with deep regret that Yamaha Motor Europe and Infront Moto Racing have opted to cancel this year's YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe SuperFinale as well as the bLU cRU Masterclass, which was expected to take place at the end of the year. Tightening travel restrictions across Europe, together with the fact that many of the participants have recently returned to school for the first time after a long absence, may well have prevented some competitors from attending. Yamaha Motor Europe and Infront Moto Racing are committed to staging a fun and fair event and, without the possibility to do so, there was little option but to cancel this year's YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe SuperFinale.
Although the YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup SuperFinale and bLU cRU Masterclass will not go ahead as planned, Yamaha Motor Europe remains committed to supporting the bLU cRU program and will be following the YZ125, YZ85 and YZ65 riders in their national championships.
The focus is now on preparing for the 2021 YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup and on ensuring that the 2021 YZ bLU cRU FIM Europe Cup SuperFinale will be an exciting ‘once in a lifetime’ experience at the end of a hard-fought season of racing.
An update on when entries for the 2021 YZ125, YZ85 and YZ65 bLU cRU FIM Europe Cups will open will be shared on www.Yamaha-Racing.com.
