ACU Hard Enduro Championship set for March launch & gains Goggle-tech backing!

With the popularity of “Hard” or “Extreme” Enduros the ACU have launched a National series to satisfy the demand and complement the well-established British Extreme Championship series giving riders an opportunity to try the series before stepping up to the British Championship or “classic” world events such as Erzberg or Romaniacs.
