Enduro European Championship at Kielce (Poland) – Preview

The final of the European Enduro Championship will take place at Kielce, in Poland from 14th to 16th of September.
It will be a 3-days event, with 2 days of classic enduro and 1 day of final-motocross.
The first two days will be on a 50 km long circuit, which has to be ridden four times and includes a motocross test and an enduro test every lap.
The motocross on the last day takes place about 25 kms away from the Parc Fermé.
In Kielce enduro events were organised for many years and the European Championship 2011 was last hosted by the city in South-Eastern Poland. It is also the home-track for the KTM Novi Corona Kielce team.
The Parc Fermé is located on the Southern outskirts of the city, near the athletics stadium and the sports hall (Leszka Drogosza 1, 25-093 Kielce).
More than 150 riders submitted their entries for the competition: with riders from Norway to Italy, from England to Slovakia, a total of 14 different Nations are competing. Among them there are also some Polish riders who will hope take the home advantage. One of them is the local hero Sebastian Krywult, who is leading the Championship in the senior class on his KTM.

The awarding of the championship titles will be exciting: in the overall standings five riders still have the possibility to catch the European title, with the leader Alessandro Battig (in the photo) from Italy only four points ahead of Junior Hugo Blanjoue from France, with 20 points at disposal on each day.
