A revised schedule will see the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship take place across seven rounds in 2023.
In light of economic and political conditions around the world, WESS Promotion GmbH have decided to adjust the 2023 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship calendar and reduce the number of races to seven.
Faced with record, 40-year-high inflation rates, among other factors, the goal of this reduced schedule is to help ease financial costs for riders, teams, and organizers, as well as us as championship promoters. This adjustment will ensure that the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship can move in a healthy direction so all involved can best navigate the financially challenging years ahead.
However, the reduction in rounds of the championship does not mean that the series is giving up its international standing. There will still be events outside of Europe. We will continue our obligation to those organizers whose commitment has contributed to the impressive development of the championships.
For the future, and specifically for 2023, this means that we will reduce the calendar to seven races. Events that cannot be accommodated in 2023 will be considered in 2024 or thereafter. Furthermore, we will race once in North America each year, but alternate between Red Bull Outliers in Canada and Red Bull TKO in the USA.
It is also planned that the 24MX Getzenrodeo and 24MX Hixpania will alternate as the Championship’s final event.
In summary, WESS Promotion GmbH is acting proactively, making necessary adjustments in a timely manner for the good of all involved in the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship and thanks those who have and continue to support the championship.
