On the advice of the experts behind the first set of competitive regulations, feedback from competitors and direct contact between the IRV and Daniel Cyr, it was decided at the recent IRV annual meeting to use the name Cyr instead of Mono wheel for future events and competitions.
The first Cyr wheel world championships in Chicago 2013 were a great success and a positive supplement to regular wheel gymnastics. We would like to thank Wolfgang Bientzle for taking the initiative to stage the championships and for putting us in contact with our technical experts, André St-Jean and Eric Deschenes.
The IRV is pleased to announce that both André and Eric are interested in developing the competitive regulations further, with a particular view to attracting a larger number of professional Cyr wheel performers to future championships. We would also like to thank Daniel Cyr for his support and look forward to welcoming him as a guest to one of our events.
