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.
