Enduro Series Toughens Up for Second Round

Enduro riders are set to face the toughest race of the season as they head to Farm Lichtenstein this Saturday, 15 March, for the second round of the Bank Windhoek Namibia National Enduro Series.

Farm Lichtenstein, which is situated just behind Omeya Estate outside Windhoek, has one of the toughest race courses. The course, which has been changed almost completely, provides a mecca of stunning and scenic technical sections for the bikers to tackle.

The National Bikes Class will be greeted with a whole new track consisting greatly of single tracks, new mountain passes and river sections which will challenge the fitness and bike skills of the bikers unlike any other race.

The Quad Bikes Class will be riding their old route to a great extent with a couple of minor changes. Their route is also regarded as one of the toughest on the calendar and technical skills and fitness will definitely be challenged more, than at the last event which took place at Farm Omakwara last month.

“The standard of racing and training has picked up tremendously in the past few years with riders being more eager to do well and training very hard,” said Andreas Brendel, (Chairman Namibia Enduro Club)

“The field of riders has become extremely skilled and extremely competitive, and we expect to see excellent racing, as the point leaders will want to stay ahead of the ever chasing pack for both Quads and Bikes alike.”.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the event. To get to the venue one has to travel south from Windhoek on the Rehoboth road to Omeya. Directions will be clearly marked on the day.
