Cycle News Staff | March 1, 2021

Amid the ongoing restrictions relating to the Covid pandemic, series promoter ABC Communication has reached an agreement with Hungarian organizers to host all three rounds of the 2021 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship at the Papp Laszlo Sportarena in Budapest, April 1-4.

The first round will take place on Thursday, April 1, with three finals planned for the Prestige and Junior classes, plus two finals for the European Cup. After this initial encounter, the organizer will then use the following rest day to make changes to the track, ready for the final two rounds on the subsequent days.

Saturday, April 3, will see round two played out on the modified course, again with three finals for the Prestige and Junior classes, while the European Cup will reach its climax on the same day.

The 2021 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship will come to a close on Sunday, April 4, with the qualified riders from the previous day automatically transferring through to the two finals that will ultimately decide the medal winners in the two main classes.

Bastien Blanchard, ABC Communication CEO, said, “We are relieved and happy to finally announce that we will have a FIM SuperEnduro Championship in 2021. It has not been easy, as for almost a year we have been governed by health restrictions. After many months of negotiations with the government and the Budapest arena, Adam Hadobas decided to take up the challenge of organizing three rounds over one weekend with the number of spectators limited, of course, and which remains to be confirmed.”

Jean-Paul Gombeau, FIM Sports Director, said, “Once again we are humbled by the huge efforts of both our promoter and the local organizer to find a workable solution in what remains a challenging period for all stakeholders. The planned multi-round format at a single venue is a good option and will provide the best possible opportunity for the 2021 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship to take place in a safe and controlled manner.”
