There is even talk of running the event without any spectators, like many top-level sports events are considering.

This final round of the SuperEnduro championship, scheduled to take place in Poland, has been postponed after the Polish government banned all large events. Brit Billy Bolt is currently leading the championship.

The Italian Enduro Championship and the opening round of the European Enduro European Championship, also due to take place in Italy – has now been postponed.
