The Enduro Series / French Enduro Cup 3rd round will take place in Valloire the 4th and 5th of August. The Savoyard resort will be packed and will welcome 350 riders ready to battle over 6 runs including a 1700m vertical drop stage between Valloire and St Michel de Maurienne.
Up front, the fight will be intense. Valloire is the second and last round of the Enduro of Nations. 13 teams (Italy, France, Belgium, Ireland, UK, Slovenia, Portugal and Finland) will battle on the slopes of the Savoyard resort to get themselves on the top spot of the podium.
The riders taking part in the Enduro of Nations (Rémy ABSALON, Dan ATHERTHON, Alex STOCK, Andréa BRUNO, Florian NICOLAI …) will not be the only ones fighting for this Valloire round. They can count on the English man Paul ASTON, the Swiss Ludovic MAY and the French Nicolas LAU and Nicolas VOUILLOZ. Big show to be expected!
