New for 2019, Spain‰Ûªs Hixpania Hard Enduro joins the fold. Now entering its fourth edition, the event has become the country‰Ûªs must-do Hard Enduro race. Held over three days, it too embodies the spirit of WESS with its multi-discipline Urban, Cross-Country and Hard Enduro elements. Already a favourite with some of the sport‰Ûªs top competitors, its inclusion in WESS for 2019 ensures the stakes will be raised this time around.
Spectacularly kicking off the second half of the series, WESS seeks out the wild mountainous wilderness of Romania‰Ûªs Red Bull Romaniacs for round five. Considered the world‰Ûªs toughest Hard Enduro Rallye, the five-day event annually lives up to its fearsome reputation. Catering to all ability levels, the race sees a strong entry of competitors from 35 nations compete.
From Romania to the United Kingdom, the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country at the famous Shropshire circuit offers traditional Enduro riders an opportunity to flaunt their speed. After qualification on Saturday, riders will take to the start line on Sunday for a rough and physical two-hour 30-minute Cross-Country battle across unrelenting sandy bumps, tight and technical woodland, combined with the fast and flowing Motocross circuit.
