The whole enduro race scene is really picking up and here’s another one, the 2012 X-Fusion Suspension All Mountain Enduro Race Series based down south.
It is a three round series, spread over five and a bit months! The classic Forest Of Dean starts things off, followed by Salisbury Plain and then the final will be held at Longmoor…anyone remember the Pedalhounds series races held there? Classic.
Here’s the Press Release:
Enduro 1 is pleased to announce the 2012 X-Fusion Suspension All Mountain Enduro Race Series! We have three races spanning the Southern UK with each venue having its own unique feel of terrain and mix of special stages. The series is aimed at encouraging the average trail rider who is new to racing to enter a competition relevant to their style of riding and bike, yet has classes to cater for the more experienced rider/racer.
Upgrade Bikes the importers of X-Fusion forks and shocks commented on their involvement as the title sponsors “ X-Fusion and ourselves are really pleased to be involved in supporting this new series and the UK Enduro racing scene. This is a great way forward for the average mountain biker to become involved in racing for the first time and the X-Fusion/Enduro 1 is both a friendly and fun series for them to cut their teeth on and hopefully be a stepping stone onto greater things in their Enduro racing careers!”
Carlos Perez the Enduro 1 race promoter commented “I am really stoked to have such a major player in the world of MTB as X-Fusion on board as the series sponsors. I believe X-Fusion provides the perfect products to race Gravity style Enduros and by having their support we can really help drive this format forward in the UK.”
The first race will be held at the Forest Of Dean on the 22nd April followed by Salisbury Plain on the 17th June and the final will be held at Longmoor, Hampshire on the 7th October. All details can be found on our website www.enduro1.co.uk
