16 years and still on it! Dawn to Dusk Enduro – Report
Last Bank Holiday weekend our epic Dawn to Dusk Enduro Event returned to the Welsh countryside and as usual it continued to impress with the new track layout. It had everything on offer for the Enduro enthusiasts, 14 miles of flowing single track, fire breaks, woodland, hills and descents. This year we even added a new 2.5 mile practice track which proved to be a massive hit. We are thrilled to announce that an impressive 550 Enduro riders took part at Walters Arena in South Wales. This was our 16th year and it showed again why it is one of the best events on the Enduro calendar. Dawn to Dusk is one great event, with 2 days of racing, it has 4 Races and 19 classes.
Dawn to Dusk Enduro is one of the UK’s hardest and longest endurance race. Growing year on year since 2002, it stands as a testament to all riders who strive to push the limits. Challenging both rider and machine. No other event comes close to this world class premier endurance event. Whether they have entered the 2 hour youth, 6, 12 or 24 hour race and aimed to complete it solo or part of a team, it was for all ages, amateur, as well as world class champions alike, and it have various classes to ensure fair play. It still has the only 24 hour race in the UK.
