We are back!
The Hopetech Women Enduro in association with PMBA at Gisburn Forest is a yearly event focusing on creating a fun race environment just for women. Whatever your level or ability, you are welcome to sign-on to this brilliant event and race to achieve your own personal goals - beit a podium or simply to get around. Duanting as racing can seem at times, there is no better place to give it a go and we guarantee that you will go home sweaty and with a smile on your face from good times, personal progression and new friends.
2019 is our third year and it is set to be bigger and better than ever. We have listened to feedback and made additions. We know that some of you come to the event alone and would like to meet others to ride around the race with. We know some haven´t entered the race and would just like to ride around the stages with other women. For those looking to make a weekend out of it, this is the perfect opportunity to plan some more riding. We have grown this into to a 2-day event, with the best coaches in the industry, demo bikes rides, social meeting points, stands and racing, EVERY woman on wheels is invited.
Here´s the schedule. Get involved!
