It looks like it will be another good season in this category.
First of all I would like to mention that Maximilian Scheib is coming. I’ve heard his name already in 2015 but only in 2016 I watched some CEV’s races and he amazed me. I am very curious about his performance and for me he is the dark horse of the championship for this season.
I myself have to say that I am glad that there will be racing Guarnoni, Marino, Razgatlıoğlu (I wrote his name with the turkish letters how it should be correctly written so I hope I am right with it like this) and of course Scheib who I’ve already mentioned above. These four are worth to watch! At least in my opinion.
Well, as this is the category where there is usually lots of riders’ changes I am afraid I am not able to write all of the changes in comparison with last season. So I think I just leave it how it is and more I will write to each rider in my season 2017 preview.
