The peaks of Italy’s Tuscany mountains are calling for the fourth round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, Red Bull Abestone on July 8-10.
A highlight of the 2021 season, despite being a newcomer to the series, Red Bull Abestone is a Hard Enduro not to be missed.
Staged in the unique location of Abetone’s ski resort, the event captured every emotion of Hard Enduro thanks to iconic landscape, idyllic mountain peaks, and tough forest tracks. Along with the incredible atmosphere among riders and fans in both the paddock and town it quickly cemented itself as a must-do event.
With the organisers’ goal of keeping things demanding for the Pro class but also enjoyable for amateurs, this year’s event is promising even more. A true summer special not to be missed! Racing will be held over two days, but riders can get an early start on the action thanks to a Friday afternoon training session in the mountains.
Saturday will signal the start of the racing with the JUST1 qualification. An enjoyable 15-kilometre-long course will be ridden twice in the morning (Q1) and twice in the afternoon (Q2), with the combination of the fastest lap time from Q1 and Q2 counting towards Sunday’s racing.
The top 30 riders will advance to the LIQUI MOLY grand final on Sunday afternoon, while those outside the top 30 race the two-hour MITAS final on Sunday morning. As an added bonus, the top 16 from the JUST1 qualification will get the chance to race in the Straight Rhythm shootout on Saturday evening.
Entries are open for Red Bull Abestone. To encourage more amateur riders to compete the organisers are offering groups of five one free entry. That’s right, sign up with five of your friends and together you only have to pay for four!
