The toughest Enduro race in the Azores is back for 2019 on March 16-17 with the same spirit. A party of enduro mountain biking disguised as a race, perfect opportunity to gather your friends and/or make new ones over a few Azorean beers.
Located in the Island of São Miguel Azores, this enduro festival is a celebration of the sport as well friendship, combined with breathtaking views, characteristics of the Azores islands, is a race/holiday you don't want to miss.

Only a few hours from Europe mainland, in Atlantic North you'll find São Miguel island, one of nine volcanic island, trying to push the word out, that the Azores has good riding trails, some very techy and steep.
Book your flight to Ponta Delgada airport (PDL) and embark in an adventure that you won't soon forget. Join others and race 8 stages in 2 days in around of 20km of singletrack and over 4000m of descending, in the most varied terrain, from jungle trail, to alpine lookalike , to ancient trails and purposefully built trails.

As we said it's not all about the racing but also about friendship, included in your entry, a traditional Azorean dinner will be offered by the village race host on the first day of practice. A wood barbacue and azorean beer lunch will be held on the final day after the race. Perfect time to tell your trail stories over a cold one.

Go Solo and choose your category from MEN; MEN 40+, WOMEN, or bring your best mate and form a DUO and race in the teams category. Not sure if you can take the full 8 stages? choose the NOLOCO category and race only 6 stages.
No matter your ability or fitness, good time on the bike is guaranteed ;)

If you can't take time out, you can also choose to race just the 2nd day(Sunday) and therefore practicing on 1st day(Saturday) in the afternoon. This way you can still be part of the party.
