That's right, entries for the first ever Scottish Enduro Series are now on sale, with round one taking place at the legendary Fort William. The inaugural Scottish series consists of 6 rounds organised collaboratively by No Fuss Events and Innerleithen MTB Racing.
Taking in some classic locations, each and every round of the series will be aimed at finding Scotland’s Best Enduro riders, whilst providing each and every participant with a race they won’t forget. The stages over the course of the series will include a great mix of characteristic natural trails and challenging trail centre classics.
Each round will have prizes for Junior through to Super Vet categories for the boys, Junior and Open Women, and the ‘Hard’ Men and Ladies of enduro will be able to enter the hardtail categories. At the end of the season the overall winners in each category will also be crowned.
