On July 23rd was held the Executive Board Meeting of the new FIM Europe management. 
The meeting, which is the first of the mandate which has just started after the election of Dr. Wolfgang Srb as new FIM Europe President on July 5th, was hosted by Youthstream Media, at its headquarters in Geneva Airport.
Among the questions faced, it was considered important to start immediately operational
activities within FIM Europe, dealing with the most relevant issues of the current management
and, most importantly, starting to plan future activities both for the sport and for the non-sport
matters. The economic and financial situation was also analyzed in order to make the available
resources congruent with the final phase of the sports season and with future programs.
The current FIM Europe management is extremely determined to represent at its best the
interests of its Federations organizing for next year “very strong” championships which can be
attractive while performing their role of “launch” of young riders at national level towards the
World Championships. But at the same time these championships must be “feasible” in relation
to the current economic situation that the Continent is experiencing.
“I am very satisfied with the meeting and the full commitment of all the members towards a
stronger FIM Europe”, dr. Wolfgang Srb said. “On top of our agenda are subjects like to receive
more subventions from FIM for European projects, a European Road Racing Championship as of
2015 and an efficient and cost effective management of FIM Europe”.
