Connor Fearon will be staying in Australia and sitting out the upcoming EWS and DH World Cup events scheduled to take place in Europe in the coming months. The travel restrictions in Australia currently prohibit overseas travel. Australia also has a passenger arrival limit making it very difficult for Australian citizens to travel back home which has left some citizens stranded overseas.
The team had big plans for 2020 with both full EWS and World Cup circuits. Connor is not one to sit idle and has plans to make the most of this time away from the races to provide value to our sponsors and supporters. Miranda Miller and Rhys Verner are on their way to do the current EWS Enduro events. Travel is easier for Canadians and we’re looking forward to watching them compete this fall. 
“Like everybody, I’m devastated for how 2020 has played out so far. I had a really productive offseason both on and off the bike and had planned to compete in almost the entire EWS and WC DH series. I was really excited to get more EWS experience under my belt and had worked hard to be able to prove my third place at EWS Derby was no fluke. The choice to sit out for the remainder of the races was not easy to make. The current pandemic has made me realize there are more important things in life than racing a bike and after considering everything, I decided to listen to the government’s travel advice and not take the risk involved with traveling to the other side of the world right now. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to attending all the events possible within Australia and taking on some media projects I’ve never had time for before! I’m still committed to racing 100% and will be ready to go when traveling and racing become somewhat normal again.”

Thank you to all our partners and supporters. We look forward to when it’s ok to travel and Connor getting back to international competition.

And you wanted it! You got it! Here is a full photo bike check on the Stab Deluxe that Connor rode to second place over the weekend!
