2019 Championship Venues to be decided

The 29er Executive will ask all National Representatives and officers to vote on the 2019 World and European venues after the 2016 29er Worlds are complete.

Using available technology and based upon the success of the online forum whereby all National Representatives and Executive were able to evaluate each bid, initiate a discussion and then hold a vote this prior year, the Executive is recommending to use this system again to determine the 2019 venues.  Once the 2016 Worlds are complete and all have recovered, each National Rep will be instructed how to access the forum.  A decision will be made in October with the winning bids notified.
