Spanish event to host round four of World Enduro Super Series.
The World Enduro Super Series (WESS) has announced the addition of Spain’s Hixpania Hard Enduro to the 2019 calendar as round four of the series, replacing the provisionally proposed Classic Enduro in Italy.
Now entering its fourth edition, the Hixpania Hard Enduro has quickly become one of Spain’s most prestigious races, and one of Europe’s most visible Enduro races. Annually attracting many of the world’s best enduro riders, it also welcomes a wealth of eager amateur competitors.
For 2019, the race moves from its original autumn date to become a summer event scheduled on 21-21 June, while the format of the race itself will remain unchanged.
Staged over three days, the opening day of competition will feature a Superenduro-style prologue in the heart of the Aguilar de Campoo’s medieval town. The second day’s ‘Campoo Extreme’ will take riders out on a challenging, 50-kilometre Cross-Country loop around the nearby lake, which competitors will complete three times.
Bringing proceedings to a close, the third and final day of competition – known as ‘Lost Roads’ – will feature a multi-lap Hard Enduro race located in the infamous nearby quarry.
