For the start of the new season of Enduro Pilipinas, the Enduro Network will be dedicating the 2014 races to the recovery of typhoon Yolanda victims. The recently-concluded race on November 24 raised funds to bring smiles to some kids in the province of Leyte. The Enduro Network talks to us about the Enduro Pilipinas Series 2014:


We realize a that the best contribution we can make to restore Leyte’s normalcy is to help create employment through local tourism – something our Enduro events can really deliver. Local tourism does not only generate livelihood, it uplifts the broken spirit. So, in 2014 we have scheduled 2 races in the typhoon-affected region. A season-opener at the Island of Biliran and a pivotal event at the TLBF bike festival in Ormoc on October 25.

Typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was one of the most intense tropical storms to ever make landfall anywhere in the world.
Across the country, from Benguet to Davao, there are teams who enjoy and espouse the Enduro style of riding and racing.
The Toughest segments are the climbs and walks up to the next stages.

A new year, a new hope for the Philippines… a great year for the Enduro Pilipinas Series. In the coming year, the indomitable Filipino spirit and the support from the international Enduro community continue to be our inspiration.
