Endurance GB are confident that competitive rides will also be back on the calendar very shortly.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHowever, plans to resume the sport in Wales are on hold until further announcements by the Welsh Government.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEntry numbers at the first scheduled pleasure rides will initially be capped to around 40, depending on the event, to ensure that social distancing can be maintained both at the venue and sufficient space can be kept between riders on the trail. Start times will be staggered to ensure that no more than six people meet at the ride.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eEsther Young, Operations Director said: “We are entering uncharted water in resuming the sport and while everyone is excited at the prospect of being back out there, there will be new systems and measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.\"\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTo ensure safe management of events, entries will be processed online through Endurance GB’s new website for all levels of event, and attendees will need to complete a health screening form.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA thorough risk assessment will be conducted before each event and additional cleaning and hygiene measures will be in place. Camping and corralling to be allowed in line with government guidelines, but no socialising will be possible in groups of more than six.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePhil Nunnerley, Chair of Endurance GB said: “There is no doubt that this is the moment we have all been waiting for and there will be both cheers and sighs of relief when the first riders head off at the first pleasure ride. However, the health of members, officials and supports is our priority and a significant amount of work is going into making sure that none of our venues unwittingly becomes a vector for disease transmission. We are very hopeful that as the season progresses, we will see a resumption of bigger rides and longer distances with the caveat that we remain flexible and able to react quickly to any new Government advice.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“Once again, I would like to thank all those on the board as well as our ride organisers and officials who have done so much to safeguard the future of the sport through this crisis and for the membership for their patience and support. Our endurance community has shown its true strength during this crisis with an impressive support network being there for everyone from members who are key workers to those who are shielding - staging a safe return to the sport will be our chance to thank them for their efforts.”\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cfigure style=\"text-align: center;\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https://egb.myclubhouse.co.uk/Client/Images/Cms/Press_Release_pic_29_June_1_.JPG\" data-image=\"1\"\u003e\u003c/figure\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cp style=\"text-align: center;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u0026nbsp;Emma Husband and LTF Kalisha at Barbrook, Derbyshire - which will be one of the first rides to resume this year\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\"text-align: center;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePhoto credit: Kerry Dawson\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e","HasCommentsThread":false,"SeoTags":{"PageID":0,"MetaDescription":{"ID":0,"Name":"description","Value":null},"MetaKeywords":{"ID":0,"Name":"keywords","Value":null},"OgTitle":{"ID":0,"Name":"og:title","Value":null},"OgDescription":{"ID":0,"Name":"og:description","Value":null},"OgType":{"ID":0,"Name":"og:type","Value":null},"OgImage":{"ID":0,"Name":"og:image","Value":null},"CustomTags":[],"AllTags":[]},"PageURL":"https://egb.myclubhouse.co.uk/Cms/Spaces/NEWS/News/Endurance+GB+poised+to+resume+sport","Comments":[],"UpdatedComments":[],"LastViewTime":null,"CanEdit":false,"CanPublish":false,"CanComment":false,"CanReadComments":false,"CanModerateComments":false}
