Sam Hill's announcement
that he'll be sitting out the 2020 EWS season came last week and now fellow Australian Connor Fearon has announced that he will also 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 and the country also has a passenger arrival limit making it very difficult for Australian citizens to travel back home, meaning many citizens have been stranded overseas.
Connor is not one to sit idle and has plans to make the most of this time away from the races.
Fearon's Canadian teammates Miranda Miller and Rhys Verner are on their way to do the current EWS Enduro events in Europe since travel is easier for Canadians.
Connor raced his 2005 Stab Deluxe to second place (behind Troy Brosnan) at an Adelaide DH race over the weekend.
