King of the Hill 2020 set to kick off Romanian Hard Enduro season 

Romanian extreme enduro season to begin in April with the King of the Hill hard enduro ahead of the big one in the summer, Red Bull Romaniacs. 

 

Entering its eighth edition in 2020, the King of the Hill hard enduro (KOTH), April 2-5, will stretch over three days while mixing three different race formats without forgetting  the key ingredient – extreme!

Traditionally KOTH has been a great boot camp for riders ahead of the big extreme races in Europe as 2019 winner, Michael Walkner, proved by finishing 12th at Romaniacs in his first go in the Gold class. 

A SuperEnduro style prologue will kick off the race weekend on April 3 before taking on a 60 kilometres hard enduro course on the following day. Race direction says it’ll take around four hours of riding for the fastest pros, so expect carnage among the rest of the field.

The King of the Hill will come to an end with an extreme cross-country race on Sunday, April 5, before the final award giving ceremony at 6pm.

According to the organizers the level has raised year by year so in order to keep making the riders push their limits there’ll be only two classes in 2020, Pro and Hobby. 

The number of entries is limited and are already open so if you want to kick off your extreme season with some Romanian hard enduro head to their website (link at the bottom of the post).
