Sheffield Arena. This Saturday night. The World's best enduro and trials riders go head-to-head in the opening round of the World Endurocross series.
It is first time in history that the FIM Indoor Enduro World Championship has visited the Sheffield Arena and in the last few months the event promoters, Future West, have been scouring South Yorkshire for all of the necessary ingredients required to bring the great outdoors, indoors.
Thousands of tons of rocks, tree trunks, railway sleepers, massive tyres used on earth-moving machines and good old-fashioned muck have been found to create a unique course.
Throw in a water -feature, dancing girls, flashing lights plus the best riders in the world and Sheffield is in for a night it should never forget.
The rider line-up for this event features current and past World Champions and National Champions from countries around the world and this event offers a unique opportunity to see the worlds best in the indoor comfort of the Sheffield Arena.
Here’s the who’s who of off-road superstars lining up for the big one:
