ECTO event in Latvia to be a TrailO Ranking Event
The TrailO Steering Group has designated the ECTO event in Latvia on July 8-9th, to be held the weekend before WTOC 2017 in Lithuania on 10-16th July, as this year's foreign event used for TrailO Ranking purposes.
Bulletin 1 for the ECTO event is now published with minimal details, but Bulletin 2 is promised in early May.
Taken together with the public races at the WTOC event, this provides a week's Elite competition as well as a chance to support the GB Team.
Vilnius airport is closed over the summer for reconstruction, and with Kaunas having fewer choice of flights, it looks as if flying to and from Riga in Latvia will prove the easiest way to get to the events.
