The Enduro World Series (EWS) announced a calendar for the 2018 season. The sixth season of the series will feature eight rounds across three continents, and will start the first half of the year in four completely new venues. The fourth race of the series will take place on 30th June and 1st July on the mountains of Peca and Jamnica in the Koroška region. This will be the first race that will be held in two countries at the same time – in Slovenia and Austria.
“Round four is not only a new venue, but for the first time will feature two countries in the same race – Slovenia and Austria. This cross border race starts in Jamnica in Slovenia, where racers will take on a beautiful hand cut single track before day two heads to Petzen in Austria. Here riders will experience some of the longest stages in EWS history – and even some underground liaisons – in what surely will be one of the most diverse races to date,” it says in the official announcement of the Enduro World Series. The cross-border event, known from its previous five editions under the name of Black Hole Enduro and part of SloEnduro series, is one of four new events in the series.
“We are proud our bid was a success,” says Black Hole Enduro and Black Hole Festival co-organiser Anej Štrucl. “Our team worked hard for this and we proved we have the potential to host high profile events. The event will be based at Petzen but the Slovenian part of the organisation will be at least equal to the Austrian side.”
