For the most part, when we talk about Hard Enduro races, everyone thinks it is all just a bunch of super talented pro riders. But there are only about 20 pro riders in the whole world that compete regularly in these events. Like racing nearly everywhere else, the majority of the field is made of sportsman class riders. In Europe, they call it the “Hobby Class”. Just a bunch of regular enthusiasts who want to try their hand at extreme enduro.
When watching this, keep in mind, that for many of these regular Joes, the real world cost of their shiny new motorcycle is about twice what we have to shell out here in the states. But they will happily launch it up the hill nevertheless.
