Fans to expect the same level of excitement during the second round of the series

Riders are set to face the toughest race of the season as they head to Farm Lichtenstein this weekend for the second round of the Bank Windhoek Namibia National Enduro Series. In the first leg of the race 96 riders took part in very difficult conditions due to the rain where most of the participants struggled to find traction with wet and muddy tyres.
Farm Lichtenstein, which is situated just behind Omeya Estate outside Windhoek, has one of the toughest race courses. The course, which has been changed almost completely, provides a mecca of stunning and scenic technical sections for the bikers to tackle.

The National Bikes Class will be greeted with a whole new track consisting greatly of single tracks, new mountain passes and river sections which will challenge the fitness and bike skills of the bikers unlike any other race. The Quad Bikes Class will be riding their old route to a great extent with a couple of minor changes. Their route is also regarded as one of the toughest on the calendar and technical skills and fitness will definitely be challenged more than at the last event which took place at Farm Omakwara last month. “The standard of racing and training has picked up tremendously in the past few years with riders being more eager to do well at races than ever. Riders are training every day of the week and riding twice on weekends. Therefore, we expect to see good competitive racing as the point leaders want to stay ahead of the very eager chasing pack for both Quads and Bikes alike”, said Andreas Brendel, Chairman of the Namibia Enduro Club Brendel stated that members of the public are welcome to attend the event as this race is sure to be an interesting one with a technical river section, 500m from the pits and an obstacle course at the end of each lap which is 50m from the pits, which the riders will have to tackle.
