Info from the organisers…

The Specialized-SRAM Enduro Series will enter the second round next year, with the dates now set. But the change is not only in the title, the number of races has also increased.

The format Enduro is the hot talk of the town at the moment, and so the relatively new discipline gets more and more attention. A series was first held last year in German-speaking countries, and after a successful start it goes into the second season. The aim to have more events has become reality; therefore there are seven races in four different countries on the schedule for next year. Next to the three established races (Winterberg won’t be part anymore) there are four new, but not unknown, places in the calendar to hold the additional four events. The dates are the following:

Rd1, 27/28 April 2013, Treuchtlingen (GER)
Rd2, 04/05 May 2013, Riva del Garda (ITA)
Rd3, 25/26 May 2013, Samerberg (GER)
Rd4, 15/16 June 2013, Willingen (GER)
Rd5, 06/07 July 2013, Kirchberg (AUT)
Rd6, 27/28 July 2013, Kronplatz (ITA)
Rd7, 12/13 October 2013, Flims/Laax (SUI)

But not only the race calendar was extended; there is also a change in the title of the series. It will be known from now on as Specialized-SRAM Enduro Series, as SRAM clearly positions itself not only as main sponsor with the addition ‘powered by…’ as last year, but as title sponsor next to Specialized. This is to highlight the involvement and strengthen its recognition of the format and the series. iXS will also join the party as sponsor again next to the two title sponsors. It looks like all is set for the next season as the series doesn’t need to hide behind the since quite a few years established events anymore.
