It’s quite possibly the series of races that has brought enduro racing up to the high level it’s now at. Italy’s Superenduro series is hotly contested across a wide range of locations and on trails that can include anything from lung-busting power climbs to brutal rocky downhills.
The 2013 dates have just been announced, with two categories of event – Pro and Sprint – and the second Pro race plays host to the first (ever!) round of the Enduro World Series. This is going to be a race series to keep an eye on with pro riders from all disciplines showing interest in getting over to Italy and enjoying the superb trails, atmosphere, organisation and of course food!
Here’s the press release:
