The first round of the Israel Enduro Series in partnership with Bike.il was held this past weekend in the forest of Mishmar HaEmek, Israel. Heavy rain on training day made for challenging conditions for the 250 riders ranging from the ages of 7-55, who came to compete. The feedback from the riders was, across the board "European conditions in Israel." 1500 spectators came to enjoy the festivities while following the Covid-19 regulations set in place. This was the first of four races set for the 2021 calendar. The second race, which will be held in Misgav Regional Council, will be the first EWS Qualifier event Israel has ever seen. The race is scheduled to take place on May 8th.
