Held at Laggan Wolftrax, known throughout Scotland for its challenging Black Trail, the venue has grown and grown and the local trail beavers have created some of the finest natural tracks you’ll find anywhere. The trails vary from fast and flowy, steep and rooty to downright gnarly – this location will definitely challenge any rider and leave you hungry for more! Round 4 will be another new event in Ae Forest, offering old skool tracks and plenty of Scottish roots! The series will draw to its exciting conclusion at the ‘must do’Dudes Of Hazzard This Is Enduro Now! where the Dudes are sure to have something exciting planned.
