OffRoad 2009 Canadian Enduro Championship

Recommended Posts

Big news for those of you who are north of the border or like to ride up here. For the first time ever there is going to be a true Canadian Enduro Championship with a pair of 2 day events in Alberta and BC in July then 2 more 2 day events in Quebec and Ontario in September. World Enduro Canada, the new off road sanctioning body for Enduro, cross country, and trials in Canada, has a solid group of orgainzers putting the events together. These events will be running FIM style enduro rules with special test times determining the winner. All events will be closed course so no plates, lights or insurance will be necessary to compete and there will be both Pro and Amateur classes. There will be a Pro payback at each event with all the Pro entries fees being paid back to the top finishing Pros. The Canadian motorcycle industry is really excited about the series and is getting behind it with sponsorship and riders. So far BMW, Honda, Yamaha, KTM, Kawasaki, Pirelli and West Jet airlines have all signed on as sponsors. In addition to KTM, Husaberg and Yamaha who have been sponsoring top Canadian Riders for a few years Honda and BMW have joined the party by signing riders for the series.

World Enduro Canada is making it easy for riders to cross the country to compete by offering a transportation package. For $700 your bike gets a round trip to the opposite side of the country. For more details go www.worldendurocanada.com - the site is being re-done and the new site will be up in April. You can also PM or email me at trevor.wideman@sympatico.ca if you want more details. We are hoping to have some American talent come north to make things interesting. These will be great events for anyone considering going to the Six Days.
