The Specialized-SRAM Enduro Series has established itself as one of the most important and professionally organized series in central Europe.

Great venues, fantastic landscapes and perfect organisation, the Specialized-SRAM Enduro Series 2013 was a great success.

There will be six venues in three different countries:

  • 26./27.04.2014 #1 Terlago (ITA)
  • 01./02.05.2014 #2 Riva (ITA)
  • 07./08.06.2014 #3 Samerberg (GER)
  • 14./15.06.2014 #4 Willingen (GER)
  • 28./29.06.2014 #5 Kirchberg (AUT)
  • 20./21.09.2014 #6 Leogang (AUT)

For next season there will be some changes to the series’ rules. In 2014 there will be two different categories in the mens class: Pro and Amateurs. During registration the participant can select his preferred category. For the Pro category it is necessary to hold a valid UCI-license. The Amateur category is open for both non-license and license holders.

Overall winner 2013 André Wagenknecht (Cube Action Team) will try to defend his title in 2014.

Aditionally, participants won’t be allowed to change their frame, fork, rear shock or wheels during the race. The racer has to carry any spare components themselves, with an exception being made in the special Tech-Zone. For 2014 it will be obligatory to wear a fullface helmet on the special stages.
