Blue skies and dusty trails awaited the lucky 80 that got into the 2019 edition of The EX Enduro in Exmoor’s wilderness.
Three days, 24 stages and just shy of 100km of racing might be the stats behind The EX Enduro, but there’s plenty more to this adventure around the Exmoor National Park than racking up those race miles.
This year was the 4th EX and might well have been the best one yet. Just 80 were invited for 3 days of incredible riding, vintage tea-stops, pristine single-track and plenty of apres-ride entertainment.
The event sold out in less than 2 minutes and treated riders to 3 big days with almost 100km of riding and 24 timed stages.
Sam Shucksmith took the overall win but, THE EX isn’t really about the racing. It’s more about the Saturday Night pub quiz and dinner party with live music, the Bristol Beer Factory beer stops or the cream tea at the mid-point every day. On the track it’s about riding with your mates, the smiles and high-fives at the bottoms of stages and about taking in some of the very best riding the UK has to offer.
We’re aiming to be back for another EX Enduro in 2020 and will be sending out a Save the Date in the next few weeks. For more information and to sign up to our mailing list you can visit our website.
A big thank you to all of our riders for making THE EX what it is, to the National Trust and people of Exmoor for hosting us and to all of our sponsors for making the event happen.
