Zawoja, a small town located in shadow of Beskidy highest peak – Babia Góra, for one day became the capital of Polish enduro – it’s all because of the third edition of the Enduro Trophy in this season. More than 130 riders challenged to a duel by Beskid Żywiecki, appeared at the start at the foot of Mosorny Groń and despite the drizzle started arduous climbing. The start of the first Special Stage – uphill – was placed in three quarters of the driveway – so it was necessary to overcome the end of the driveway at high speed. At the top, riders had a little rest and a moment later began the next Special Stage well known from the last year Enduro Trophy.

The Red Bull Balloon, starting gate and steep downhill road lined with roots and rocks. Moment of rest during great, straight and narrow single track and again steeply down among a lot of stones. Then… back to Mosorny Groń, where was the beginning of another downhill Special Stage. After downhill ride there was a long asphalt driveway to get to the strip located on the other side of Zawoja. Traverse section and last downhill section, first high speed through meadows, after picturesque, winding single track among the trees. And this is the end…

The results were not surprising. Among the women, the fastest was Karolina Kulik-Trzebieniak, who got ahead Agnieszka Szor and Iza Cieniuszek. In the category of HT the best was Patryk Kalinowski, who beat Marcin Mikoś and Jan Radzki. In the category of Masters fight lasted until the very end, finally, Tomasz Kohler beated Piotr Dobrzański with three point advantage. Third place went to Michał Siuta. In the Uphill category Remik Ciok was unrivaled, he beated Jurek Krzemiński i Marcin Motyka ahead of them until about a minute. In the Downhill category Macin Motyka took the first place, when Remigiusz was only two seconds slower. The lowest step of the podium was awarded to Krystian Białka. Ulitmately, Remik Ciok won in general classification and Marcin Motyka took second place. Third place went to Mirek Jarmuła.
