The UK Gravity Enduro Series is back for 2013, and Shimano is one of the brand new sponsors!
Enduro racing is one of the fastest growing segments of Mountain Biking and for 2013, Shimano will continue to support and help the development of the series.
"There are two main sponsors for 2013, Shimano and Mavic are joining the growing UK enduro race scene. We’ve also got an all new timing set up for 2013, it’s a TAG Heuer system, Chris Roberts (Mini-DH/Naked Racing) will be running the timing, its all GPS’d back to a central point, using light beams and transponders. It will be super accurate, the same as the current DH system. As in previous years, the format will be one seeding run on Saturday and five stages on the Sunday, all to count towards your overall. Some people may say £60 is expensive, but they may also say a pint of milk is expensive, it’s all relative to your perception of value for money. The dates are all now up on www.ukgravityenduro.com couple of venues just need to be fully confirmed, rounds 1 and 5, just waiting full FC approval."
Steve Parr, Race Organiser
“Shimano are delighted to continue to support the UK Gravity Enduro series in 2013. Last season saw Enduro really come into its own as a recognised discipline and no doubt this will continue in 2013 and we are excited to see what the year will bring.
The presence of the Shimano Tech Support team at last years races was an extremely popular resource for the riders and we will once again be bringing the expertise of our Shimano mechanics to the series, offering free repair to make sure every rider can make it to the start line on race day.”
