The 17th FAI World Paragliding XC Championships was supposed to take part in France, starting May 20. It was cancelled on March 12. Soon after, the CIVL Bureau received a proposal from Loma Bola, Argentina, to organise the championship in November. The Bureau decided that looking for an alternative to the cancelled event was worthwhile. It made the idea public. The CIVL Bureau then received proposals from Governador Valadores, Brazil, and Roldanillo, Colombia.
