In its fourth season the SloEnduro international mountain bike enduro race series will be stopping at six venues in three countries from April to October 2016.
It is already a tradition to kick off in Italy, in San Dorligo della Valle just outside of Trieste in the east most corner of Italian coastline. This time the Enduro 3 Camini (Three chimneys) will be held as part of the first No Borders MTB Festival.
Then the series moves to Slovenia for one stop each month: at the end of May it’s time for the friendly and fun Enduro Cerkno which was voted best event of the 2015 season. In June it’s the 2015 newcomer, the alpine challenge of Soča Enduro in Bovec, part of the Soča Outdoor Festival. In July the series returns to the classic and notorious Black Hole Enduro in Koroška region, part of the Black Hole Bike Fest. In August it’s the Enduro Kamnik‘s turn – the event close to Ljubljana started in 2014 but was part of the 4Fun series in 2015, now it will double as the Slovenian Enduro National Championships.
Once again, the series ends with the always spectacular Enduro Grozni in Grožnjan, Croatia.
