The European TCC is generating so much hype it is almost outdoing the US version (yes, I know we should wash our mouths out but you cannot deny the facts).
The 2011 ETCC, scheduled for June 18 and 19 in Vienna, Austria, should be an amazing tree climbing spectacle.
A feature of this years ETCC is the first ever European 'Open Ascent' competition sponsored by DMM Professional .
The ascent competition is in a head-to-head format and is open to everyone attending the ETCC not just qualifying competitors - surely this is an opportunity for a kiwi climber!
