Fans of extreme enduro can get in on the action on 13th-14th December when motocross, enduro and rally riders from across the world – including world champion riders Graham Jarvis and David Knight – descend on Walters Arena, Glynneath to battle it out in a bid to be crowned the ‘King of the Heads of the Valleys’.
This is the first ever Heads of the Valleys Extreme endurance event, with the Saturday event being a mix of all types of bikes competing. There will be eight miles of forest roads, with the course being similar to Erzberg Rodeo's Iron Road prologue, to qualify for Sunday’s main event and decide start positions.
On the Sunday, riders will start with 25 riders per row for a 1.5/2hr lap with the first rider to complete the three laps declared the winner. This track will replicate the famous Gilles Lalay Classic with an incredible layout which will allow spectators access to follow the course on forest roads and witness all the action. Despite the lap being long, the event has been planned to allow the fans to see plenty of action via the forest’s many interlinking roads.
Organised by Paul ‘Fast Eddy’ Edmondson – British Enduro rider and four-time World Enduro Champion, and Nick Plumb – MD of Touratech UK and four-time Dakar racer, the event has also attracted comedian Ross Noble to the Welsh valleys. Ross is a regular Dawn to Dusk competitor, and serious off-road fan.
Entry for spectators is £10 for adults, £5 for under 16’s and OAP’s, and free for the under fives.
