Which major enduro and off road races are still running, cancelled or postponed as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Unless you have been living on Mars for a couple of months it will not have escaped your notice the current global outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) is having a widespread effect on society.
Naturally that includes motorcycle racing and though off road sport mostly operates outdoors, events bring people from different locations together, often from far and wide and that obviously goes against current public health guidelines in many countries local government guidelines.
The decisions taken by motorsport organisers, governing bodies and championships to protect people are straightforward and, of course, a priority.
