World Endurance race officials were forced to stop the 2019 Bol d’Or this afternoon after severe weather made racing too risky.

The race was suspended at 6pm to ensure the safety of the riders competing in the Bol d’Or, the FIM race direction, the race organizer Éditions Larivière and Eurosport Events, the promoter of the FIM EWC, have decided to prolong the suspension of the race until 6 O’ clock on Sunday morning.

Bikes were put into parc ferme in the pit lane and teams were given permission to take their bikes back into the pit boxes this evening.

The bikes will be brought out shortly before 6am on Sunday for a fresh start behind the safety cars in the same order as the standings at 6pm on Saturday before suspension of the race.
