IJSBA is pleased to share the news that Jettribe will return as the title sponsor of the 2019 IJSBA European Championships which is also the first round of the inaugural IJSBA Triple Crown World Series. Everyone in the IJSBA family has been a little slow coming out of the winter but this announcement, along with several announcements to come over the next month will get the industry very excited for the summer and fall action. Please see this great announcement below:
Jettribe is excited to be the returning title sponsor for the 2019 Jettribe European Jetski Championship. For the second year-in-a-row, the Championship will take place in Belgium at the Lakes of Eau d’Heure on July 3 – 7, 2019. The Jettribe staff looks forward to traveling to Europe every year to see both the beautiful scenery and our dear friends. Lakes of Eau d’Heure is a collection of five man-made lakes, and is the largest body of water in the country. It will serve as a beautiful backdrop to this year’s race.
For those who do not know the exciting news, the European Championship is part of the 1st annual World Cup Series. This series will allow riders to collect points from 3 events, the European Championship, the Lake Havasu World Finals and the Jet Ski World Cup in Thailand. Jettribe is honored to be a part of this record-breaking series, and we are excited to see if any rider can win the “Triple Crown” in all three events.
The Europeon Championship will take place near the Europe IJSBA Headquarters. This will be our 4th trip to the European Finals, with past events taking place in Poland & Austria. We are always amazed at the culture and beauty of these European locations.
As always, we are continuously impressed with the level of professionalism both on the water and on shore. We have much admiration for their racing teams and pit crews for presenting such an organized atmosphere at a level that rivals even the best teams in all powersport communities. After each journey to the Euro finals, we always make a point to bring home the lessons we learned from European riders to share with others.
The BJBF / IJSBA Europe staff are extremely tight and run an amazing event. Peter De Smet runs one of the most professional watercraft race crews in the world. We also have the upmost respect for the Course Marshalls who put in long days out on the water. They are the first on the water and the last to leave.
Once again we are counting the hours and minutes until we board a plan from LAX to Antwerp, Belgium, to see our European family once again. We wish we could see them more often.
