The FIM Hard Enduro World Championship confirms a seven-round calendar for 2024 with the addition of Turkey’s Sea to Sky and the 24MX Hixpania Hard Enduro in Spain. Increasing the global audience of the championship, the calendar expands to the United Kingdom and Turkey for the first time, while returning to the United States.
• Seven round HEWC series confirmed for 2024
• Championship will visit the United Kingdom and Turkey for the first time
• Registration for the 2024 season is now open
WESS GmbH are excited to announce that a seven round FIM Hard Enduro World Championship is confirmed for the 2024 season. A strong mix of venues will see new additions to the calendar, combined with numerous tried and trusted events. Expanding the global reach of the sport, the championship will visit both the United Kingdom and Turkey for the first time, while also returning to the United States.
United Kingdom set to open the 2024 championship
Getting the racing underway in early May, the 2024 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship will begin with the Valleys Hard Enduro in the United Kingdom. A new event for all, the venue in Wales is well-versed in top-tier off-road races and is sure to deliver an exciting and memorable opening round.
Less than three weeks later and the championship will take in round two at Austria’s Red Bull Erzbergrodeo. An event of legendary status, next year will mark the 28th edition of the race.
Next up is the Xross Hard Enduro Rally in Serbia in June, which will be round three. Although only held twice so far in the championship, it has fast become a rider favourite thanks to its incredibly remote and rugged terrain. Featuring a multi-day, GPS navigation format, it builds in seamlessly to round four at Romania’s Red Bull Romaniacs. For those who enjoy this style of Hard Enduro competition, round three and four will form an important part of the season.
United States beckons for round five
Following a three-week summer break, the championship will travel to the United States to begin the second half of the season with the Red Bull TKO. An event of stark contrast to the previous two races, Red Bull TKO culminates with an intense day of racing where competitors must advance through numerous heats to reach the final.
Sea to Sky joins 2024 calendar
Turkey’s Sea to Sky makes an exciting addition to the 2024 season as the sixth and penultimate round in October. Held in the tourist region of Kemer, the race is fondly known as the ‘most enjoyable Hard Enduro’ and celebrates its 15th edition next year.
Taking place over three days, it begins with a beach race. The final day of racing truly embodies the Hard Enduro spirit. Riders start with their wheels on the shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea before racing head-to-head to the finish line on the summit of the nearby Olympos Mountain, some 2,365m above sea level.
Set to draw the 2024 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship to a close will be Spain’s 24MX Hixpania Hard Enduro, round seven of the 2023 HEWC series on October 25-27. With its three-day format, it offers a wide variety of racing from the opening day SuperEnduro in the medieval host town of Aguilar de Campoo to the multi-lap Hard Enduro main event in the nearby quarry.
KLIM continues to support Junior category
For 2024, the FIM Hard Enduro Junior World Championship supported by KLIM will be held across five rounds. The Valleys Hard Enduro, The Valleys Hard Enduro, Red Bull Erzbergrodeo, Xross Hard Enduro Rally, Red Bull Romaniacs*, and 24MX Hixpania Hard Enduro are set to host exciting Junior Class battles in 2024.
*Confirmation of Red Bull Romaniacs as an FIM HEJWC event will be confirmed in January 2024.
