ERC European Riders Cup
It all started from the concept of offering riders the possibility to be part of a Championship without having to deal with astronomical expenses of the "professional" Championships. The goal was also to be able to put on the Starting Grid riders from different nations, to blend in all types of qualities, riding skills and give the possibility to everyone to confront themself with other European riders.
So in 2009 Valentinos, Power Up and RO-SBK joined forces to create the EEC ( European Endurance Cup ) and the ERC ( European Riders Cup for GP races) .
Riders with and without racing license can register to the ERC Championship.
As this Championship is thought for "non professional" riders, we implemented some rules and restrictions to ensure that professional riders or ex-champions, would not come and take advantage of our riders.
It is possible that a rider with a racing license, might take part also to "professional" Championships, like "Alpe Adria", etc.. Therefore Riders with a racing license can register to the ERC Championship, but only if they do not fall in any of the categories listed in the Restriction-document . In this document we have listed the positions ranges in the standings for each "professional" championship we could think of, for which we do not allow registration to the ERC Championship.
We rely on the sportmanship and fairness of all riders registering with the ERC Championship.
