Old but gold – Enduro Legends racing EnduroGP this weekend in Italy

The fifth round of the 2019 EnduroGP World Championship in Italy this weekend will see some former champions racing in a 'Legends Race' to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the series.

 

EnduroGP organisers have partnered with Daniele Madrigali, the World Enduro Championship manager in the 90’s, to host a Legends Race at the Italian GP in Rovetta to take place alongside the main GP event.

The list of riders includes: Nani Roma, Paul Edmondson (below, taking it easy), Anders Eriksson (above on the BMW), Ivan Cervantes, Mario Rinaldi and Giovani Sala have already signed up for the event. There are more and even a rumour Stephane Peterhansel will be among the riders.

It will be good to see how the old dogs get themselves around the contemporary enduro course and see who’s still got what it takes!

The riders will take on the Friday Super Test and Saturday’s course (exactly which test is TBC!) from 15:00 onwards.
