This alliance also attracts unregistered competitors in these two competitions, as the Scandinavians or the Dutch people deprived of their own Series which was not able to be renewed. More 50 entries will offer a tight fight because except for Lee Harpham the outgoing Champion of Europe, all the candidates for the European title 2013 will be present to begin to get ready for the fray
