It has been a great season of racing for the Czech Enduro Series this year. The 7th season led us to every corner of the Czech Republic and with one new venue, there were a total of 7 events where we welcomed riders from more than 10 different countries.

Rock Machine Enduro Race Ještěd
The season kicked off with Rock Machine Enduro Race Ještěd which was a real challenge when on the race weekend snow started falling turning trails into the mudslides which made up for interesting race conditions. Despite these weather conditions, there were almost 300 riders ready for four snowy stages.

Nutrend Enduro Race Kouty
The next race moved to the northeast of the Czech Republic, in the midst of beautiful Jeseníky Mountains the Nutrend Enduro Race Kouty took place which is one of the longest and hardest events of the Czech Enduro Series. Fresh loamy tracks and warm spring weather waited for over 400 racers including kids. This race was an EWS Qualifier event so you could get valuable points for EWS races.

Qayron Enduro Race Zadov
Third event Qayron Enduro Race Zadov is distinguished by a shorter more technical stages that are fun to race on when the weather behaves nice. This year everything clicked together. Sun was up in the sky with no clouds and many racers on the course. Šumava National Park is a nice place to visit so make sure to come visit and race next year.

Five Ten Enduro Race Klíny
In the middle of the summer, the Czech Enduro Series moved to the Ore Mountains to Klíny resort for a fourth race which consisted of six stages. A perfect balance of three loam stages and three stages mixed with bike park features. With a little bit of rain, all the stages were in superb condition for a full weekend of racing.

Fox Enduro Race Morávka
Fox Enduro Race Morávka is a comeback to Jeseníky Mountains that are luring racer from all over the Czech Republic and Poland. Four stages with lots of improvements and one brand new stage made up for an interesting race. A classic for this event is evening prologue which brings riders together to enjoy a fun race before Saturday's training day. Kids were a big part of this race, over 50 of them raced 3 stages with huge smiles on their faces.

Giant Enduro Race Špičák
An EWS Qualifier event makes this event interesting for everyone who wants to gain precious points. Five stages from every single peak around Špičák are long, loamy and technically challenging for every participating rider. 290 of them showed up at the start line on a race day.

Kona Enduro Race Klínovec
A brand new venue for 2019 season came up to expectations. Harsh autumn weather of Ore Mountains did not give anything for free. The beginning of October brought rain, cold temperatures and heaps of mud but despite the conditions, 251 riders raced on 5 stages. Long loamy stages were mixed up with steep “A Slice of British Pie” style stage topped up with old smuggler’s trails. A great muddy finish to a great season of racing enduro.

At the end of this year, the riders gathered up for the Final Ceremony where we celebrated the season and awarded the fastest. Make sure to check out the upcoming racing calendar for the 2020 season and pay us a visit in the Czech Republic. We are 100% sure you’ll have a great time shredding Czech trails and enjoying festivities of enduro racing.

The fastest men and women of the 2019 season.

 I thought that Jested was rough, but Klinovec was even rougher. At least from weather perspective. Big Grin
