The 2022 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship gets underway this week with the Minus 400 in Israel. The opening round of an eight-race series, it’s shaping up to be an exciting one as Hard Enduro visits the Dead Sea region for the first time.

With a unique mid-week format, three days of racing await the world’s best Hard Enduro riders over terrain that is unlike anything they’ve raced before. Situated 400 metres below sea level – hence the name Minus 400 – the desert region of the Dead Sea offers a testing mix of dry and dusty terrain, combined with some big climbs, tricky descents, a wealth of natural Hard Enduro obstacles, plus even a little urban action.
