APP World Tour realigns its start date for the 2021 world tour to August to deliver a full season of events.
**Press Release: Ericeira, Portugal, Thursday 18th February
The APP World Tour is excited to report that it is still on target for a full season in 2021, but at a slightly later start date than anticipated, which will be early August as it stands. The first event is scheduled for the 6th – 8th August, allowing time for things to calm down globally and for global travel restrictions to ease.
A slightly adjusted schedule for 2021 will be released in the coming weeks which will outline the updated details of our incredible lineup of events. Details on the APP Ride of the Season and Fast Track finals will also be released soon, following on from our virtual competitions in the summer. The two events are still pending approval based on current Covid restrictions, as we remain at the mercy of the effects of the pandemic.
The APP had planned 5 major Qualifying events for the 2021 season, but all of them have been pushed back until later in the year due to current Covid Restrictions. As a result, we are opening up a wildcard submission process for the remaining spots on Tour, with all candidates to be screened by the APP Committee, led by Race Director, Anthony Vela, based on track record, racing history and commitment to the Tour.
To be considered for one of these coveted wildcards please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The APP is working on the new process to be adopted for qualification for the 2022 season, as it expands its global presence, inclusivity and impact with more detail to follow.
