For its ninth year, the series will go to both classic and new venues. The classics are Val d’Allos and Valloire, two legendary races for any serious enduro rider. Samoëns was highly acclaimed in 2012 thanks to the quality of its trails and will make its second appearance on the circuit. Of the new trails, Val D'Isere barely needs introducing as it is world-known for sporting events. Finally there will be Blausasc, Fabien Barel’s backyard, to end the season with a rally format race (no skilifts). For the third year in a row, the Enduro Series will be supported by the French Cycling Federation (FFC) as the French Enduro Cup.
Round #1 Samoens 22-23 June
Round #2 Val d'Allos 29-30 June
Round #3 Valloire 3-4 August
Round #4 Val d'Isere 24-25 August
Round #5 Blausasc 26-27 October
Entries will be open from the 1st of March and we strongly recommend you to read the rules and regulations of the races. Some modifications will be brought to match the Enduro World Series that is due to become the reference international series.
Also note that two rounds, Val d’Allos and Val d’Isère, will also be part of the Enduro World Series calendar.
On the sponsor side, we appreciate the continuing support of Urge Bike Products, Royal Racing, Fox Racing Shox and Brake Authority, the latter becoming the title name of the series.
Big brands and retailers are also joining: Michelin, Mavic and Probikeshop, and we’d like to thank them for their support to the sport.
The success of 2012 winners Rémy Absalon and Anaïs Pajot is due to be highly contested as the level keeps on growing with a new generation of multi-talented young guns pushing through.
Thank you for your support and we’ll see you very soon on the Brake Authority Enduro Series 2013. www.tribe-events.com
