The FSB/FBCT succeeded to demonstrate by the internal working of the selections during the years 2017-2018-2019 and more specifically after the excellent season 2019 inspired by the British system (Pre-Qualification and Final in Geel), and thanks to the trials announced for the selection of the Worl 2020, to be a very loyal partner for the ISDS.
It was not obvious to keep the same number of seats for Belgium. The fact that more and more countries want to participate to the World Championship and the pressure of the strongest countries to get additional seats were treathening the 8 Belgian selection places.
The trial of Kagge on 9 and 10 Novembrer and the latest trial foreseen on 28-29 December will finalise the selection of the Belgian team for the World 2020 in England.
Registration for the KAGGE WE 1 trial from 01-03 Nov will be closed on 21 Oct 2019
