First admissions in the Official Team List for the AR World Championship Portugal 2009

2009-08-11 19:00

By the end of last week the organization published the (official list) of teams admitted to the Seventh Edition of the Adventure Racing World Championship schedule for next November in Portugal.
Thirty-one (31) teams constitutes the first batch that will be joined, in the coming days, by more twenty-nine (29) who are now concluding the final steps of the registration protocol. The organization still considers whether or not, to extend the final list to sixty-five (65). However a final decision will only be taken if that enlargement contributes to the elevation of the quality of the competition.

In the meanwhile, still some doubts remains about the participation of several renowned international teams that have contact APCA but did not yet found the necessary sponsoring to attend the race in Portugal. In that lot are the team NIKE of USA, the team Wilsa Helly-Hensen of France and team Salomon Santiveri of Spain. Nevertheless, the top Ukrainian team OS-Direct Adventure, one of the most powerful formations of Eastern Europe was the last team to apply for a place and are highly motivated to come to Portugal and show all their racing potential.

From the international AR scene, should be noted the participation of several ARWC09 teams in some of the major Raids in August; examples are Team Orion Health-NZ and Team nuun-Feed The Machine-US who are participating in Primal Quest-Badlands USA and the well known rivals AlpinePro/Nutrend/Merida-CZ and OpavaNet/Tilak/Merida-CZ who will fight for victory at its homeland Raid, the Czech Adventure Race 2009. The Czech event will also have the participation of Team OS-Direct Adventure-AU and SWECO Karlstad Multisport-SW, two teams On hold in the ARWC list.

The final notes goes to the new ARWC page in FACEBOOK who got an immense response from the AR community and got almost 90 members in just over 10 days. The average of 9 fans per day in this early date suggests that this will be an exceptional communication tool for the next few months. The Twitter ARWC2009 also started this weekend and already has a group of loyal followers that will surely increase in coming weeks.

Please stay tune to more upcoming news in a very special month for the ARWC Portugal 2009.
