Cancellation of the event
The situation around COVID-19 has unfortunately not eased as quickly as we had hoped a year ago. Switzerland is again in lockdown, and public and private events are still prohibited. The great uncertainty makes a safe and long-term planning of our event impossible. The protection and hygiene concepts required for international events would reduce our event to such an extent that it would no longer correspond to our vision.
It is therefore with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel this year’s event. We will resume planning when the situation has eased enough to allow for a 1st International VeloSoleX Event as we envision it. Rest assured: We will stay tuned and keep you informed!
And what do you have to do now? Send us your bank details (IBAN and address) and we will send you back the paid participation fee. Amounts that are not asked to be reimbursed are kindly donated to the club’s treasury to cover our expenses.
-> Stop! Something very important! <-

The organising committee consists of three crazy friends. They have set themselves the insane goal of attracting Solex fans from all over Europe to tiny Switzerland.
– chair, marketing & program –
The versatile self-made Solex rider! She feels at ease both in the artist’s workshop and in the garage. Responsible for imposing order on the chaos.
– staff, finances & communication –
Mechanics? No idea! She is, however, full of passion for Solex and a big fan. Our greenhorn’s Solex is still sitting in the cellar in single components. There’s a lot to do and a lot to learn.
– infrastructure, catering & routes –
A solex rider of the second generation with two-stroke oil pumping through his veins. He is responsible for the roof over our heads and the food in our stomaches.
Together we are strong! Your support is celebrated and praised.
