European Individual Championship 2017
Competitors For the Open European Individual Open Championship and for the European Individual U-17 Masters will be chosen according to the new entry management procedures agreed by IMGA in 2016 :
A full and detailed explanation of how the Entries Management Procedures work can be found here.
Entry fee for the competition is £450. All riders entering must pay a deposit of £50 to confirm their place.
All entries are to be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
All entries must be through the official system, so places cannot be sold or exchanged.
The programme has been drawn up to avoid heats of the Individual competitions and heats of the Team championships taking place simultaneously in different arenas. However, entering both competitions is at the riderís risk and neither competition will be delayed to allow competitors to move between arenas.
There will be a maximum of 80 places in the European Individual Open Championship and 70 in the European Individual U-17 Masters.
Step 1 : Guarantees places to previous high performers
Entries to this stage are now closed.
The riders taking up Step 1 places are :
Step 2 : Gives places to every member country
Each member country was asked to apply for up to 5 individual spaces in each competition by FEBRUARY 28 2017.
The spaces are to be allocated by the national organisation to Championship standard individual riders.
Countries may not get all the places they want, but they will be allocated on an equitable basis.
Once the number of places available is known, each country must pay the deposit for those places by MARCH 31 2017.
Each country must notify England MGA of the names of the riders as soon as they are selected.
Step 3 – Allows for further places to be allocated by a Selection Committee
Each member country should inform England MGA of the name of their representative on the Selection Committee.
Any rider seeking a "wild card" place must submit their name and a brief (maximum 200 words) resumé by MARCH 31 2017.
The Selection Committee is set up with one selector from each member country. How each country decides who will be their selector is entirely up to them, but if any country does not provide a selector, or does so late, then that country is not represented on the Selection Committee.
The deadline for each country to nominate their selector (to England MGA) is MARCH 31 2017.
The Selection Committee will review the applications for "wild card" places in the competitions and vote on who will receive the places.
The number of "wild card" places to be allocated by the Selection Committee will not be known until after Step 1 and Step 2 places have been allocated, but will be 50% of the spaces remaining in each competition.
All places will be allocated to riders by APRIL 30 2017 after which riders must immediately pay their deposit to secure their place.
Step 4 – Gives any remaining places to the host country to allocate
England MGA will allocate additional "wild card" places from the remaining received applications and from any places which subsequently come available through cancellations.
