In 2021, for the second year in a row, there will be no Festibike. The annual Spanish consumer-oriented cycling-industry festival – organized by a Portuguese events company called Lastlap – was scheduled for Sept. 10-12 in Las Rozas. Also canceled are the accompanying MTB Marathon and FBK Cyclocross, which were due to be held in November. “We’ve listened to the sector and believe, as a cycling-event company, that Festibike has no reason to be this year,” Festibike’s director, Guillermo de Portugal, told CMDsport. Last year, the pandemic lockdowns were the reason for the cancellation, but the reason given this year is, ironically, the high demand for bicycles. Thanks to the recent boom in cycling, most brands and distributors have already sold out of the models for 2022 – even the test bikes – and have therefore set their sights two years ahead. According to the event’s announcement online, “most brands are focused on regularizing their production and correcting service interruptions.” On the other hand, Sea Otter Europe, another cycling trade show organized by another company that was canceled last year, is for the time being still planned to be held, on Spain’s Costa Brava, near the city of Girona next Sept. 24-26, accompanied by a program of races. De Portugal has confirmed to CMDsport that two events are planned for 2022: the FBK Demo Test, in Madrid, and the usual Festibike, in September.
