Enduro European Championship to kick-off 2022 season
The Borilli Enduro European Championship will kick off the new 2022 season on 19-20 March with some news.
New is the Italian promoter Maxim, but even more important are two sporting changes.
Firstly, the 50cc class has been revived: until 2014, the class was contested as part of the Enduro European Championship. Now the smallest cubic capacity class is back as the “24MX 50 CC Trophy”.
Secondly, the class division for the cubic capacity classes has been adapted to the international standard: in future, as in the World Championship and many national championships, riders will compete in the E1, E2 and E3 classes. The E1 class is for displacement up to 250 cc, regardless of whether it is a four-stroke or a two-stroke bike. The E2 class is reserved to four-stroke over 255 cc up to 450 cc and in the E3 class the two-stroke motorbikes over 255 cc and the four-stroke over 455 cc will race.
The first competition will be held in Pietramontecorvino, Italy: in the north of Puglia, at the height of the Italian boot spur.
Every day, starting at 9:00 am, there will be three rounds, each 50 km long. In each of them, two enduro tests and one cross test.
More than 120 participants from 14 nations have already registered to this first round of the Enduro European Championship – because nothing less than the title of the best European Enduro rider is at stake: defending champion Krystof Kouble from the Czech Republic will not be at the start and so there will be a new champion at the end of the year. One of the favorites is Enrico Rinaldi: the Italian is not only the runner-up, but also has a small home advantage with this first race.
