Next weekend, on 18 and 19 September, the European Enduro Championship in Poland will enter its second half of the season: The motorsport club from Kielce, “Korona Novi”, has pitched its tents in Piekoszów, on the western outskirts of Kielce.
The club not only has a lot of experience with Enduro, it even hosted the finals of the European Championship in 2018.
Three rounds of the 76 km long course will be ridden every day, which adds up to over 220 km of off-road for the riders. The course includes a cross test, an enduro test and an extreme test to be completed in each round. All tests are within easy reach of the paddock for fans and supporters.
Over 120 riders have registered for this. Although junior rider Kristof Kouble from the Czech Republic is currently the leader in the overall standings, his fiercest rival Enrico Rinaldi from Italy is close on his heels.
In addition, the brothers Rafal and Aleksander Bracik enjoy home advantage and could certainly use that for a success in their cubic capacity classes.
Local hero Maciej Wieckowski even has the chance to take the lead in the small four-stroke motorbike class. But there are also some promising home-grown talents in the juniors with Dawid Domanski, Patryk Kuleszo and Kacper Baklarz, who have already established themselves in the European Championship.
The start is on both days from 9:00 a.m.
