The first challenge in the scheduled 6 event series is the “SUOMY HELMETS” Supported “TOUGH ENOUGH” extreme enduro on Sunday May 6TH in Mid Wales at the clubs amazing and most certainly unique Clatter Venue. Aimed at being exactly what it says in title, it’s the response the WOR Events Boss, Steve Ireland, is expecting from the all the riders as they cross the finish line and say in an exhausted tone, “that was Tough Enough!” Maybe with a few expletives thrown in as usual!
A straight 3-hour challenge, running over a genuine 10-mile per lap, of what can only be described as one of, if not the best-Off road enduro venue in the country. A 1500-acre private piece of land with unrivalled, awe inspiring, flowing mountain ranges with terrain that an extreme enduro organiser can only dream of using to create a classic event.
The WOR gang have ran many a “normal” hare scramble and Time Card enduro at this venue, always producing a cracking, big 12 mile plus lap but Steve Ireland has always had his eye on several sections of the land that don’t usually get used with a view to creating another one of his Extreme Enduro specials, Well after lots negotiating and persuading the land owner to release some of these sections, the idea is now a reality that is about to happen.
For spectators and rider support teams,it will be superb because WOR are basing a huge chunk of the lap in woodlands near the start / finish area, that are off camber, technical and challenging along with utilising a massive stream bed that runs right by the woods, so not far to walk and see some superb action.
The hardy riders will then take on a huge hill climb (think amazing!!! – used a few summers ago on a Sat night special by WOR) that will lead them on a challenging, climb ascent of the mountain, strewn with bogs and soggy areas, technical rocky outcrops, single track blasts through the gauze bush’s and bracken areas, loads of never used before, gulley’s and trench’s that scatter this vast landscape. Rolling open sections of moorland and grasslands will then make up more miles of fun that will then start the descent back to the loamy woods and slippery rocks of the stream beds, even some cascading waterfall sections will be in the mix to create a lap worthy of the riders saying “this is TOUGH ENOUGH” each and every time they complete another notch on the lap score board.
The Course, will as always be heavily marshalled, but it will only be the help of a fellow rider that can assist riders in any “sticky” situations, making it a true test for all involved … Don’t expect to see any hard bits “cut out” on your next lap…This is Extreme enduro and for 3 hours, the carefully designed and prepped track will challenge each and everyone of the competitors, as well as being achievable and not “stupid hard” thus enabling real racing and true skill and endeavour to prevail for the successful riders.
Suomy Helmets, established in 1997 are an Italian Company that have a passion for racing and an ambition to provide high end quality helmets to riders worldwide. The “Mr Jump” line of off road helmets was created in 2010 and is one of the best and lightest helmets on today’s market, It also offers superb protection (just ask WOR’s Steve whom tested one too its limits a short time ago!!”.
