Five is not a magic number but since it’s a half of decade we have a reason to party for the fifth edition of race on Golovec.
The Enduro Golovec trails in Ljubljana is back on Sunday September 18. What we’ve been calling a SloEnduro 4Fun event from 2018 to 2021 is now a SloEnduro promotional event. The rules are a bit more relaxed, the course is easier, there are more age groups and there are no points for the series which we already ended on August 18 in Ajdovščina.
Once again the event is a part of Ljubljana MTB vikend festival so you know how it goes: a non-obligatory prologue is held on Saturday afternoon in Bike park Ljubljana across the city where there will be something going on all day long; then after morning training the racing goes off on Golovec trails since 11 am on Sunday.
It will be a four stage, 12 km lap with 500 elevation meters of climbing and descending. The e-bike category will have an extra »power stage« with a climb of 120 m. The U13 and U15 categories will have one stage less to do.
The course is not too demanding and can also serve as a great first encounter with enduro racing.
The course will be published on Friday when it will also be open for riding.
Like last year the venue is on the parking of Hotel Urban Ring Ljubljana.
There are some nice prizes for the fastest, also a cash purse for the overall, and a weekend with Peugeot E-Rifter for the winner of e-bike category.
World Cup downhiller Jure Žabjek will be back racing on his home trails.
Registration is open until Thursday night bot only until all 250 slots are filled.
It doesn’t look too good for Friday and Saturday right now. Ljubljana MTB vikend has a plan B to be revealed on Wednesday. It looks better for Sunday and the rain won’t hurt the Golovec trails. They will take care of some puddles so see you there!
