Paul Edmondson: ‰ÛÏHawkstone Park Will Be A Festival Of Enduro‰Û

With British riders well-placed among the top-10 of the World Enduro Super Series, the addition of the UK‰Ûªs Hawkstone Park Cross-Country is a fitting entry to the 2018 calendar.

Taking place at one of the country‰Ûªs most iconic off-road venues, the Hawkstone Park facility has played host to some incredible battles in the worlds of Motocross, Trials and Enduro over the years.

Thanks to the efforts of Paul Edmondson and his Fast Eddy Racing organisational team that tradition continues in 2018 with two days of action-packed Enduro racing for 500 amateur and professional riders in what‰Ûªs set to become a welcomed festival of Enduro.

‰ÛÏBecoming a part of the 2018 World Enduro Super Series means a lot to our race. To have the world‰Ûªs best Enduro riders come and race at Hawkstone Park side-by-side with amateur and weekend riders will really elevate the status of the event,‰Û
Marking round six of WESS, the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country will feature an action-packed schedule for competitors of all abilities on September 22/23. Saturday‰Ûªs highlight will be the Sprint Enduro comprising of an Enduro special test around the surrounding woodland and a Motocross test on the iconic Hawkstone Park circuit, while Sunday‰Ûªs feature event will see 250 competitors go head-to-head in a two-and-a-half hour Cross-Country race. In between are races for children and hobby riders, which will ensure the action is non-stop as Paul explains‰Û_

‰ÛÏWith races to suit all abilities during the two days, there is something for everyone. If you just want to have a go at riding the circuit you can take your bike out on Saturday morning‰Ûªs practice session and ride with no pressure.

‰ÛÏThere‰Ûªs a Sprint Enduro on Saturday and then a children‰Ûªs race on Sunday morning followed by the ‰Û÷Steady Eddy‰Ûª hobby race. It‰Ûªs important that families can let their children race the same track as the Pro riders and then still watch the top guys go bar-to-bar later that afternoon.

‰ÛÏHawkstone Park is sandy in nature and as a result will be rough and tough with 500 riders competing. Racing it for two and a half hours will be a big challenge for the riders, especially when we add in the best bits of the Motocross circuit and some gnarly woodland Enduro sections.

‰ÛÏThe mix of terrain will suit different riders in different places, so the course will level the playing field. Physical fitness and mental stamina will play a key role in Sunday‰Ûªs racing for sure. Whatever happens, we‰Ûªre going to be guaranteed some action-packed racing.‰Û
