World Rookie Tour: All upcoming events cancelled

Due to the Corona virus international outbreak emergency, World Rookie Tour cancels all the next events scheduled in Japan, Italy and Austria. The official statement from the World Rookie Tour crew follows:

“We decided to follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines in order to protect our rookie community and to counteract the COVID-19 epidemic with the only reasonable action: to cancel all our upcoming events and to don’t announce new events until the situation will be declared safe again.

As many others around the world, we didn’t realize the situation immediately, and we apologize for this. People are afraid, this is normal and appropriate, and we don’t want to encourage rookie teams with their coaches and parents, to travel to our events and to travel in general. There is only one thing to do: stay at home and follow the WHO recommendations for the prevention of the Coronavirus.

As an immediate consequence, all the below WRT events are cancelled:
Indy Park Jam Rookie Fest // Nekoma. JPN // 14.03.2020 // Snowboard SS
Ursus Rookie Fest // Madonna di Campiglio. ITA // 15-19.03.2020 // Snowboard and Freeski SS
Kronplatz Rookie Fest // Kroplatz. ITA // 20-22.03.2020 // Freeski SS
World Rookie Finals // Seiser Alm. ITA // 23-27.03.2020 // Freeski SS
World Rookie Finals // Kitzsteinhorn, Zell Am See-Kaprun. AUT // 31.03-05.04.2020 // Snowboard SS/HP

We don’t know at the moment if there will be reserve dates for the 2020 World Rookie Finals. More information about World Rookie Tour future events and the calendar for Snowboard, Freeski and Skateboard will be released as soon as possible.

Black Yeti recommends to inform yourself about the Corona virus situation and prevention by reading, first, all the necessary information on World Health Organization dedicated page

Cancellation of some WRT events is not the end of the world: it is a small contribution to avoid it.
We, as rookie and sport community, can take together serious action to support the prevention of Coronavirus, so let’s do it, taking it as a serious danger.
