The BallBreaker Extreme will take place at Hapton Near near Burnley Lancashire on Sunday February 17th, and will be the real deal Extreme Enduro!
Totally Natural Terrian the course features a 6-mile lap made up of Open moorland, winding Woodland streams, two huge ravines, an old quarry, and a landslip natural rock garden. Add in some super steep descents and hill climbs and we have the perfect mix to test rider and machine.
The Pro Class looks set to be a fight between the on form Jono Richardson and Charlie Frost, although Keelan Hancock will provide stiff competition for pro class honours too. Gas Gas mounted Gethin Humphreys and Eurotek KTM rider Sam Winterburn are both capable of upsetting the form book, local Lads Chris Windle and Jack Spencer have both taken on the Pro Class Challenge. Around 130 riders have filled the event to capacity, so this first edition looks set to be a good one. Competitor-wise the event is now full. Enduro fans can still see the event in person if they wish to with a very reasonable admission fee of £10 for adults and £5 for kids. Car Parking is FREE.
Live timing will be available on the RAW Enduro facebook page, including out check split times, so fans can see who’s leading event before riders begin their descent back down Hapton valley towards the official spectator areas.
