SEMENIC ENDURO 2020 AKA MUDFEST

SEMENIC ENDURO 2020 AKA MUDFEST

Sorry to say this, but it was a veritable mudfest this year. We made jokes about the forecast but the weather was way worse then the forecast so we ended up riding 3 days on soaking wet trails.

To bad for this beautiful place that got to experience such weather in a contest weekend and the trails got to suffer quite a lot ….

This is a shame because here are some of the greatest trails in Ro and I wanted to ride them so bad, just as I remember them.

It was a bit harsh on the organizers to. They found the courage to hold the event, even though the times are not the nicest (Covid and all) and the weather kicked their moral to.

It was fun the first day in training but being in contest on this kind of a weather, man, it’s to harsh I tell you.

I had to do it just to learn that next time when the forecast comes true and looks like this, I’ll turn myself in an action sports photographer for the time of the contest 😆, it’s safer for me and for my bike, and I still do something more useful then racing 😅🤷‍♂

Otherwise, the place is great for riding trails, just beautiful. Some nice trails with good dirt, all on a beautiful Mountain with a beautiful lake at the bottom just in the perfect place for you to cool down after a gnarly descent 🌬💪.

Hope next year we get rid of all the troubles and have a perfect enduro season, fingers crossed.

Until next time, cheers to the guys from Bike Attack Resita for holding the contest and check out the trails on trail forks. And don’t forget that the trails are there the whole year, so go visit them, you’ll have a blast riding there 🤗😉. Congratulation to the winners for pulling hard and hope their bikes are ok! Ride safe and enjoy!

Also, check out this great article on EWS web page with the race report! Things happen here to and it’s all due to the implication of some great people from Resita, cheers mates! 🍻

P.S. For accommodation in the area, if you don’t look for something fancy, you can check Haus Hubertus place out, it’s a very nice hut whit a great garden where you can even camp 😉 Great food also!

 

METAL ENDURO RESITA

Metal Enduro 2018, in our opinion the best enduro contest in RO, and, this year, EWS qualifier!

Its fun, its hard, its long and the trails are just sick! 😍 I personally didn’t finish after a crash in the first day but things turned out ok because I had time to take pictures and film some segments in the second day, just enough to put this edit together.

For those who don’t know yet, Metal enduro its an enduro contest in our notional enduro cup, hold in Resita city, old industrial city with big old factories in steel industry and metal processing…. get it… metal enduro…🤘

The contest takes place over 2 days and 8 specials that run between 1.5km and 2.8 km and around 300m elevation and all single track.

If you haven’t ridden Metal enduro trails yet, you must! and in this period, the landscapes are just beautiful.

No more words, if you want to find out more please check the page of the event or our last article form last year when we put out some more words. Thanks to Bike Attack Resita for organizing this awesome contest! and Straja Enduro too so stay tuned! 😉

We leave you this edit to better get the felling of the contest and some pics 😉 Enjoy! 🚵‍♂⛰🎥📷🤙👊
