The Maastricht six day track event that was scheduled to take place from December 17-22 has been cancelled. The organizing committee decided after much debate to cancel the event due in part to not succeeding to generate the required budget for the event, according to the event's official website.
Due to the chairman of the organizing committee and driving force behind the event, Jan Hoen's state of health the committee was unable to raise the much needed money in order for the race to go ahead. All those whom have purchased tickets via the website are entitled to a refund on the ticket price.
