2024 British National Enduro Champs Will Be British Cycling-Sanctioned.

For the first time since 2017, British Cycling will sanction the British National Enduro Championships with jerseys and medals on offer.

The British National Enduro Championships at Ae Forest on August 17-18th 2024 will be British Cycling-sanctioned for the first time in seven years. This means National jerseys and medals will be on offer.

Read the full chat from BEMBA and British Cycling below.

The BEMBA National Champs will still run just as before, everyone eligible for your category; and that is where the prizes will be handed out for the event too. In addition to this, anyone who is a BC member and has supplied their membership number (you can edit your entry to add it within SI entries) will also be eligible for the BC podiums where the official BC National Championship jerseys and medals will be presented for following cats:

  • Juvenile
  • Youth
  • Junior
  • U21
  • Senior
  • M30
  • V40
  • GV50

These 8 categories will be available for both “Open” and “Female” so that is up to 16 extra podiums for the event as long as minimum numbers per category are achieved. We then have 2 E-Enduro BC Sanctioned cats for ages 17+ in Open and Female. The UCI Elite British Champion will be awarded to the fastest racer over 17 years old regardless of category.

By supplying your membership number and entering the BC National Champs you will also agree to the decisions of the BC commissar’s including the Chief Commissaire, who will be responsible for enforcing the sporting regulations. These regulations are fully aligned with the BEMBA regulations and I’m sure will be available on the BC website in early 2024.

British Cycling can today announce details of its first National Enduro Championships, which will take place in Ae Forest, Scotland, on the weekend of 17-18 August 2024.

It will be the first time that British Cycling has awarded national champion’s jerseys in the discipline, and with six stages for riders to tackle, it is set to be an epic weekend of racing in Dumfries.

You can now enter and find out more about the championships here.

Responding to the announcement, Tracey Mosely, one of the world’s most successful enduro and downhill riders of all time, said:

“After a long wait, it’s an exciting time for British enduro racers to finally have a recognised national championship for the discipline of enduro, giving the winner the chance to fly the British flag on their jersey on the world stage, which is always a special opportunity.

“It’s also great timing as 2024 will also see enduro awarded its first ever official UCI rainbow jersey, in the race to become world champion in September. Exciting times ahead for enduro as it gets the recognition it’s deserved for many years.”

Enduro rider Jess Stone, added:

“Finally having an official British Cycling sanctioned event is so exciting. As a rider who’s won an ‘unofficial’ National Enduro Championships, it was a proud moment to wear the GB sleeve at what was my first Enduro World Series round in Tweed Valley.

“I’m so happy that future riders will now be able to have the honour of wearing the sleeve with pride during international level events and inspire the young riders at lower levels. A massive thank you to all who have helped to make this happen.”

The championships have been shaped in collaboration with the Gravity Commission, and chair, Andrea Lockhart, said:

“The National Enduro Championships is a great achievement by all parties involved, for which I want to thank each and every one.

“With a strong element of timed downhill and endurance racing for even more testing fun, enduro is a super accessible, inclusive and exciting discipline. The championships in 2024 will give riders a great opportunity to race alongside the countries most experienced riders and gain a national jersey. I’m sure this will be a well-received by all enduro riders nationwide.”
