Things are getting serious at the European Enduro Championship: on the 28th and 29th of July 2012 the penultimate round will be held in Ogre in the region of Ikskile (Latvia).
The track is going more than 65 km through the forests and of course through the three special-tests, each with its own characteristic. In the cross-test we will have deep sand, in one of the enduro-tests with gravel and stones and the last enduro-test with grasstrack.
More than 150 riders from 18 different countries will compete to this challenge, going three times over the whole course. Mainly the northern Europeans, which have the chance to take the lead in two more classes: The Estonian Martin Leok is only two points back to Gianluca Martini in the Junior-E2/E3-Class and the Swede Jonas Karlsson is close behind the Italian Maurizio Micheluz.
And it is the question whether the current European-Champion Heike Petrick from Germany will get his lead back from Marita Nyqvist from Finland.
The official opening-ceremony will be held on Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. at the Ogre-Icehall. The start of the first rider is scheduled on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at the same place.
