SuperEnduro 2017 - The Racing Calendar

Dec 21, 2016
by Superenduro  
A total of five rounds will take place during the 2017 edition of the series, in locations well distributed over the country and, in many cases, not yet visited by Superenduro. A new season to face with goggles on and ready for new experiences.

After the huge success of the 2016 comeback, Superenduro is pleased to announce the 2017 new, exciting racing calendar.

SuperEnduro 2017

From Umbria, to Trentino-Alto Adige, throughout Valle d’Aosta, Emilia-Romagna and Liguria regions, the 2017 edition of the Superenduro series will keep the athletes busy with five different rounds, each of them characterized by its own unique flavour, selected amongst many candidates with the aim of offering everyone, again, an unforgettable experience.

Kick-off time in May, precisely on the 21st, with a new entry, Gualdo Tadino, in the province of Perugia. A stunning location steeped in history, immersed in the lush greenery of Umbria. The recce really made the staff fall in love with the place: with the guys of the local association ASD G.S. Avis Gualdo Tadino they have been able to really enjoy this terrain and the special ‘taste’ of the trails in this amazing corner of our beautiful Italy.

The season will then crack on with the round of Canazei, a resort that has been key during the 2016 edition of the series, when a wet race day allowed everyone to sample just a small amount of the flavour and potential of this venue. The FassaBike crew have already spotted and started to work on new lines that will host, amongst peaks and dolomite massifs, the second round of the series on the 8th of June.

Louise Paulin was looking pinned today and into second place.

Grazie Canazei. Vittorio Gambirasio was the current leader going into this race but finished back in 16th place.

12th place Tobias Reiser was looking aggresive on the bike.

SuperEnduro 2017

For the third round of the series on the 16th of July, the Superenduro convoy will reach a destination that has already written one of the most beautiful pages of the World Enduro history by winning the Pinkbike Award for ‘Enduro Race of the Year’: we are talking of La Thuile, Valle d’Aosta. There, Enrico Martello and the crew of La Thuile MTB School will definitely be able to amaze everyone again with one of the most spectacular and tough races in the calendar, under the overwhelming presence of the imposing, Mont Blanc.

For the fourth round, and for the first time, Superenduro will join another prestigious event. The Superenduro paddock will literally blend with the Bike Summer Festival, a bike fair scheduled in Varano for the 10th of September, putting together an Event Village as never seen before. We are confident that this round, boasting amazing trails carved in the badlands of Romagna together with a paddock area full of enthusiasts and industry booths, will definitely be something extraordinary.

For the fifth and last stop of the season, on the 22nd of October, we will be back to Liguria, where S. Margherita Ligure will offer the perfect seaside to celebrate the grand final of this ninth season for the national series Superenduro, as well as the second edition for the E-MTB category. Mind-blowing trails prepared by the crew of Portofino Bike and rays of autumnal light will frame the last round that we hope will still mean an open challenge in all categories!

From sea level to 1000m in 15km.

The Rocky Mountain Team flowing down some switchbacks.

Stages one and four take you all the way to the sea.

Industry rumours, with a number of bike changes and big names’ moves between different teams, show a state of ferment: Superenduro is glad to offer the best way to give vent to all this excitement and to offer top notch terrains for the new challenges: top-quality trails and world-class selected destinations.
Many changes are in store for the 2017 season with two more Enduro World Series Qualifier Event, important communication and E-Bikes partnerships and much more that will be announced as we will get closer to the big GO!

The weather didn t stop the fans and supporters.

 can i ride my moto in the e bike cat?

 I'dont own or ride an e-bike, and don't plan to do that in near future. But gotta say nobody on an e-bike ever annoyed me a bit. Close minded people, on the other hand, often do.

 I don't think it has anything to do with being annoying. I believe the issue that most people have is that they are concerned that e-bikes will seriously threaten trail access. In many places other user groups have a major monopoly on what's deemed ok and not ok for bikes. If you have e-bikes on multi-use trails I feel like it's just fuel for the fire for other user groups to point a finger at us collectively as mountain bikers and say "oh no you didn't". Whether validated or not, the perceived notion that motorized vehicles destroy trails is strong enough for it to be a major concern for many. I could actually care less if someone rides an e-bike or not, and I think it opens up opportunities for people that may otherwise never experience what we do, but the thought of it undoing or jeopardizing the years of progress that has been made is a hard pill for me to swallow.

 My son is 10, he plays sport 5 days a week,which does not leave allot of time for much else.Whilst he trains midweek I go riding,normally around 25k each time,3 times a week.On the off days I get my e-bike out and both will go and ride together ,,I can push him one handed up the climbs which in South Wales can be fairly steep,,and then he can rip back down.Why wouldn't anyone not want an e-bike?,,my reason for having one is that on a rest day,we can still go and have fun,,,together,,
As far as access is concerned I would suggest they open up the access,,,as a trail builder I now look further for new lines,,apparently Jeffsy has now got an e-bike!?!?,,(for description go to the YT website),,just get on with it folks,,if it got wheels it a bike!

 E bike's have a motor, bicycles dont .E bikes need a slow motor bike category in a class of their own called Moto EP or something.

 I'm perfectly fine with the e-bike category. I'm sure there are people out there who need an e-bike because of a disability and would love to compete against like people. Any able bodied person who uses one in a competition should be looked upon the same way as an able bodied person competing in the Paralympics.

 They've got an ebike category... Why would they?
  • + 10
 They should make that longer... to the point where it would be impossible for the batteries not to run out.
  • + 3
 It indeed doesn't make much sense. They could also just let everyone shuttle and call it a multi-stage downhill event or something.
  • + 1
 Spot on e bikes should have their own trails not the ones that have been peddled into being .
  • + 0
 I don't have a problem with eBikes as long as they are pedal assist and don't have a throttle. Either way we are never going to stop them just like the hikers can't stop us.

 just go's to show that the E-bike market is growing and is being catered for whether its liked or not!
  • + 0
 or maybe they are trying too hard to promote them and create a demand that isn't really there
  • + 1
 E bikes are for women and shemales
