Hixpania Hard Enduro set for June date in 2019 WESS calendar

World Enduro Super Series announce Hixpania Hard Enduro as round four of the 2019 championship calendar.

 

The World Enduro Super Series has announced a new addition to the 2019 calendar as Hixpania Hard Enduro steps up to form round four of the eight round series.

Traditionally a late season race, Hixpania will move to the summer and June 21-23 to replace the provisionally proposed Classic Enduro in Italy.

In a press release WESS say, “complications in securing a suitable venue in Italy in June” were the reason behind the change of plan. Following discussions with The 5 Elements event organisation team of Hixpania, who we know were keen to get their event in the WESS calendar, Hixpania has joined the programme.

It is a move which sees the WESS series drop a traditional enduro for another Hard Enduro race – five of the eight rounds in the series are now Extreme or Hard Enduro events. 

 

World Enduro Super Series – 2019 Schedule:

Round 1: Extreme XL Lagares (Portugal) May 10-12

Round 2: Trèfle Lozérien AMV (France) May 17-19

Round 3: Erzbergrodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble (Austria) May 30-June 2

Hixpania Hard Enduro has quickly become one of Spain’s biggest races, annually attracting many of the world’s best Enduro riders. Importantly it also welcomes a wealth of eager amateur riders not least because of the mixed format event.

Staged over three days, the opening day features a Superenduro-style prologue in the heart of the Aguilar de Campoo’s medieval town.

The second day’s ‘Campoo Extreme’ take riders on three challenging laps of a 50-kilometre Cross-Country loop around the nearby lake.

‘Lost Roads’ day three is the multi-lap, Hard Enduro race located in the infamous nearby quarry and a big draw for spectators.

 

2019 will see a 26-minute Recap Program for all eight rounds on Red Bull TV, plus three live broadcast shows from Erzbergrodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble, Red Bull Romaniacs and Getzen Rodeo.
