3 days of 'Enduro' stage racing between 23rd-27th October 2014, in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in existence. Deep in the Spanish Sierra Nevadas and high above the town of Bubion, battles will be fought on every type of trail imaginable. From runway straights to 180 degree switchbacks, to deep canyon river beds, these trails have everything, bar grooming.

There are 65 places up for grabs and 50 of those in the amateur category. if you are interested in one of those 50 places you need to apply online at www.sierraenduro.com and fill out an application form. This will be available from 00:00 GMT on 01/08/14. If you are a professional then please contact lj@sierraenduro.com and we will assist from there.

We really hope to see as many Pinkbikers as possible at this inaugural event in October.

All the very best.

The Sierra Enduro Team.

 what did you think of the riding acdownhill? We are just trying to capture a bit of the community that will be hosting the race, as everyone is behind it. This event is the biggest thing for this town for years and we just wanted to show the fun element as well as the jockeying.....

 The riding was great, and having been out there a few months ago I can say its a beautiful region both to see and ride, the riders will have a blast. Just seemed like a strange edit to me.

 Riding looks killer Lee, and while I agree, the shots of the "locals" was eclectic, it kind of gives a hint of the history and culture of this part of Spain. I guarantee ya, come October, this will be the place to be for anyone looking to escape the autumn gloom and keep their season going for adventure/enduro racing.

 It's time the two Sierra Nevadas battle for name supremacy.

 VFreehd, whilst I admit it's a fair old journey from the US, if you did decide to apply and and if accepted then myself and the team would make sure that your journey was a justified one. Also, it you wanted to stay a few days after just to ride and catch some rays to justify the mileage then we could make it happen also. Would be great to have you with us!

 This looks rad! Sunshine, bikes and by the sound of it a few beers. I think the edit was cool, just an insight into the riding and the area. Nice to involve the locals and get them behind whats going on in what is their area.

 Top location. A bunch of us have been going out there every year for the last 8 years. It has even been known for us to go twice a year and one year 3 times! Always with Mark and Jacky from Ciclo Montana. We're out in October but its the week before the race or I would have entered!

Good luck - folks won't be disappointed

Look forward to hearing all about it :-)

 Loved the edit. Liked the local aspectic. Most people forgot a race impacts on the local community. We 'eat.ride.leave' then there is the cleanup. Also it's a source of revenue. I'm looking at going out next year to race and have a weeks riding early as possible.

 Send the email mate, we are waiting to look at your form. If I could disclose some of the Pro's that are singing up I think it would have you scrambling for your knee pads Wink
