With the battle to become this year‰Ûªs World Enduro Super Series in full swing, the next stop is Sweden in a little over one week for the penultimate round of the 2018 season ‰ÛÒ the infamous Gotland Grand National.
Continuing the Cross-Country theme from round six, the championship now heads to its most northerly stop for Sweden‰Ûªs most prestigious race, where up to 3000 riders are expected to compete.
Now entering its 35th edition, the small island of Gotland, situated in the Baltic Sea off Sweden‰Ûªs east coast, will become a hub of Enduro activity and action during the final weekend of October.
A ‰Û÷must-do‰Ûª race on the Swedish Enduro calendar, the Gotland Grand National has all the traits of a hallmark race, with literally thousands of competitors flocking to the island each year. Earning its title as the world‰Ûªs largest single day Enduro, a record-breaking 3,172 riders competed in 2016.
Situated on the Tolka military range, just south of Gotland‰Ûªs capital Visby, the 22-kilometre long Cross-Country course weaves its way through a maze of Scandinavian forestry.
