FLEX Pro & Europa Hartford Shows Cancelled
- Updated: January 21, 2013
The 2013 IFBB men’s bodybuilding calendar does not include two shows that were a part of the schedule each of the last two years. Both the FLEX Pro and the Europa Battle of Champions will not take place and will surely be missed.
The FLEX Pro kicked off both the 2011 and 2012 IFBB seasons, taking the place of the Ironman Pro. Last year in Santa Monica, Lionel Beyeke took home his first pro win, matching a similar performance by Evan Centopani 12 months prior.
Juan Morel also collected his first winner’s check at the 2012 Europa in Hartford, Connecticut. This year’s event, scheduled for June 29, will still hold the fitness expo.
Originally moved from Southern California to London, England, the FLEX Pro was marked down for May 17 through 19.
