After the bad news we’ve been hit with today; some good news at last – British Enduro Mountain Bike Association have stepped in to gives us a new National Enduro Series for 2019!
Press Release from BEMBA –
“The new BEMBA National Enduro Series will be spread over the UK with the final round being the National Championships race. There are plans for races in England, Wales and Scotland with the possibility of including an Irish round.
The events are planned for April, May, June, August and September. July will be kept race-free so as not to interfere with summer holiday plans.
In the same style as the newly formed National Downhill Series, the new National Enduro Series will be run by different race organisers who will each put on their own event and manage all of the different aspects of organisation.
The series proposes a simple two-day format with a full day’s practice on Saturday and racing on Sunday, with no pre-practice allowed.
Discussions are under way to create a Team Championship trophy with mixed gender teams of three and the potential for double series points at the Champs event to encourage riders to take part.
All events will be run as part of the host organisers existing plans, taking some of the best events in the country and turning them into one national series.
At this stage, the proposed entry fees are to be confirmed….
This concept has been in the pipeline since 2017 but was never initiated as BEMBA wanted to allow a single organiser the chance to make it happen.
BEMBA organisers in support of the series: No Fuss, Tweedlove, Mini Enduro, WGES, Swinley Enduro, Southern Enduro, PMBA, Welsh Enduro Series, Pedalhounds, Ard Events, Boltby Bash, Manx Enduro and NDH are committed to making the National Enduro Series a big success.
