A new extreme enduro series in Portugal is launched ahead of Extreme XL Lagares.

The Portuguese Hard Enduro Series (PHES) cements the extreme enduro disclipline in Portugal, a country with a strong enduro scene.  

Sherco Factory Racing’s Mario Roman will compete in the opening PHES round at Valongo, February 18. 

The Portuguese have no shortage of strong enduro events centred around a big week in May: EnduroGP round at Castelo Branco May 5/6 and Extreme XL Lagares the following weekend, May 11-13.

The PHES is all about building riders up to Lagares with some Hard Enduro event experience. As such it is mostly aimed at amateur riders who enjoy Hard Enduro and want to prepare for Lagares but all-comers are welcome.

PHES race dates:

Feb 18 Valongo

March 11 Chaves

April 8 Tbc

May 11-13 Extreme XL Lagares
