Provisional 2021 Enduro World Championships calendar announced
The FIM has released the provisional calendar for the 2021 Enduro World Championship. After a troubled 2020 season, next year looks set for a wider spread across Europe with a more traditional feel to it which includes heading back up north to Estonia and Sweden, a stop-over in Zschopau, Germany before a conclusion in France during October.
The start date in June appears to show caution as the sporting world still strives to accommodate the effects of Coronavirus. The distance between some of the venues will also mean plenty of kilometres clocked for riders and teams. Valpacos to Edolo is close to 2000km for the opening back-to-back weekends with rounds five and six 1200km apart.
