Last November's successful This is Enduro Now race, held at Kinlochleven. By Sam Needham

Enduro racing has gone from strength to strength in the last 12 months, with the success of races like the Trans Provence and Super Enduro series sitting alongside news of the forthcoming Trans Savoie race and Enduro World Series, starting this year. Regular riders are pretty well catered for too, with events like This is Enduro Now, the Bluegrass Enduro in Kinlochleven, Enduro 1, UK Gravity Enduro and the Innerduro series all filling up our weekends fast. And the latest entrant to the enduro scene is the Highland Perthshire Enduro, set to take place around Dunkeld in Perthshire on May 4.

Don’t forget the Tweedlove Festival in May, featuring the POC King and Queen of the Hill on the 25th and 26th at Glentress, and the Glentress Seven endurance race on Saturday June 1st.

Covering around 58km in total, Perthshire Enduro will include four timed gravity stages, plus the usual linking sections and climbs that now form the traditional enduro format.

Organised by Highland Perthshire Cycling and No Fuss Events, the race forms part of the annual Highland Perthshire Cycling Festival. Entries for the event are now open at www.nofussevents.co.uk and at £40 per entry this has to be one of the best value entries for 2013.
