Cant believe the Europeans are the week before the Worlds.
Means for us people that have a job we will probably miss them as I know I can't afford to have 2 weeks in a row off and travel to Turkey then Germany.
Bad planning surely they should be a month apart at least to allow everyone to be able to attend and not restrict to pro riders who kite for a living!
Conme on IKA lets allow everyone to attend both the Worlds and Europeans and not just the elite!

The Course Racing schedule has been updated in the events section, now listing a total of 20 events to chose from. Another two events (European Championship in the second half of June and Asian Championship second half of November) will be added as soon as the dates are fixed.

There are currently 8 major events on the calendar, together with the European and Asian Championships the number of major events will raise to 10, with each riders best 7 out of all results counting for the world rankings.
