The 2020 Vitus First Tracks Enduro Cup finally kicked off with a doubleheader in Bigwood, N. Ireland. The usual format had been completely revised to comply with local Covid-19 regulations. This did not stop riders getting stuck in though. This could be the only taste of racing they will get for a while!
Round 1 on Saturday started with a practice session in the morning on 4 challenging stages. Heavy rain tested the rider's grit and race-craft and after a short break, they went back out again for a timed lap.
On Saturday evening the organisers taped 4 different stages so the riders had to do it all again come Sunday morning for round 2. The sun came out and dust even appeared on some trails making for fast and furious racing.
The format proved successful as riders went home with their bellies full of racing and gagging for more!
