We are proud to be sponsoring the UK Enduro Series in its opening year. At a very exciting time for Enduro racing in general and especially in the UK, there’s no better time to be getting involved.
Enduro racing in the mountain biking world is very similar to rally driving in the car world - competitors have to negotiate a number of technically and physically challenging stages, with tough transitions under their own steam, held normally over 1 or 2 days. The inaugural UK Enduro series, organised by Neil Delafield of Red Kite events, offers racers the option of racing a one or two day event, depending on their preference and time allowances.
With these races being entirely outdoors, often in adverse weather and very dirty conditions, having well performing and durable kit that keeps you warm, dry and comfortable is absolutely paramount, which is exactly why Sealskinz have jumped on board to sponsor the series.
“The UK Enduro scene is growing really quickly and we’re excited to be part of it,” comments Matt Boyce of Sealskinz. “This is a great fit for us, as all of our kit has been specially designed to keep riders comfortable and dry so that they can concentrate on getting the best times possible.”
Not only will Sealskinz be providing prizes for podiums and as well as spot prizes, but they will also be in attendance at many of the rounds with demo kit for people to try, specifically for Mountain Biking, there couldn’t be a better time to get along to one of these exciting events and try your hand at racing. Whilst you’re there, wrap any remaining limbs and digits in some new Sealskinz endurance kit.
Round 1 kicks off this weekend at Crychen Forest, mid-Wales and being Wales, the weather is likely to be changeable. Let’s not worry about that though as whatever the weather, Sealskinz will have you covered!
