Enduro fans rejoice as the Hope PMBA Enduro Series have confirmed that their EWS qualifier will go ahead September 5th and 6th.
Generally the big daddy of the PMBA calendar, it’s great to see Graythwaite back on after a topsy turvy summer. If you want your fix of racing on some of the best trails the Lakes has to offer, then you’ll need to be ready at 7am on August 5th when entries go live.
The event also retains its Red 2 Enduro World Series qualifier status.
So far only private venues are opening up for events, so we here at PMBA Enduro have launched a September Enduro at Graythwaite Estate.
Not just an enduro, but an EWS qualifier with 7 stages in the grounds of the Graythwaite estate on the banks of Windermere in the Lake District.
This is a proper Lakeland venue, even the transitions are tough (but not timed) expect push-ups to the start of some stages. Camping included within the picturesque grounds of Graythwaite Estate this is a great weekend away. This round has some of the very best views of the whole series.
This is not a grass roots round, it’s tough and not suitable for a first enduro. Steep trails, a 4-5 hour loop and 7 stages.
Of course the event will maintain social distancing, 2m rule at all times, and be run with COVID secure guidelines. Some things will not be possible, we’ll not be encouraging spectators, our usual spectacular finish into the middle of the arena will not be possible. There won’t be the same arena vibe, but the racing itself will be largely unaffected.
Held on Sat/Sun September 5/6th with camping open Friday midday till Monday midday.
