W miniony weekend w klasie Open 2t startował zawodnik Naszego klubu: Aleksander Bracik. Relacja zawodnika: „Trasa naprawdę wymagająca ale bardzo dobrze czułem się na mojej @betamotorpolska 1 dzień kończę na 4 miejscu! Drugi dzień po konsultacji z @dms_racing_suspension wprowadziłem kilka zmian i jechało mi się jeszcze lepiej do samego końca walczyłem i przed ostatnim enduro testem byłem na 3 miejscu ze stratą 2 sekund do 2. Walczyłem do samego końca, niestety chłopaki poprawili się o 40 sekund i spadłem na 4 lokatę… było blisko natomiast byłem tu treningowo i jestem bardzo zadowolony ze swojej dyspozycji. Miałem okazje testować nowy model okleiny od @qutson.pl i naprawdę jest kozak, dziękuje za wykonanie w ekspresowym tempie!🔝🔥 Dziękuje wszystkim, którzy mnie wspierają na trasie i nie tylko!”
Aleksandrowi gratulujemy i czekamy na kolejne zmagania 🙂

Next weekend, on 30 October and 1 and 2 October, the final of the European Enduro Championship will take place in Hellendoorn, Netherland. The organising Motor Club Nijverdal Hellendoorn (MCNH) will hold a prologue for the first time on Thursday from 4.30 p.m. and after the two long riding days on Friday and Saturday there will be the award ceremony.
There will be three laps a day on the 80 km long course, which is practically in the format of a big 8. This means that the paddock is also the service point twice per lap, which makes logistics much easier for the teams.
The course includes four different special tests: two enduro tests, one extreme test and one cross test. All tests are within easy reach of the paddock for fans and supporters.
In the overall classification it’s a duel between Enrico Rinaldi and Krystof Kouble from Czech Republik. There the Italian has a small advantage and, completely untypical for his compatriots, he thinks that sandy ground would suit him.
In the class of the smallest motorbikes and youngest riders, the U21 class with the 125cc motorbikes, Pyry Juupaluoma, who is only 18 years old and riding in Finland, could even become the champion in his class early after the first day of riding. The Husqvarna rider already has so much lead over the competition and is also always to be found at the top of the overall standings.
French rider Justine Martel also has the best chance of securing her title in the women’s class early.
In the other classes, the lead of the favourites is not yet so clear.
In the end, three juniors stood on top of the podium at the overall winner’s ceremony: Enrico Rinaldi ahead of Krystof Kouble and the Finn Peetu Juupaluoma.
Surprisingly, Krystof Kouble had to take a back seat this time: The Czech rider had come to Poland as the leader of the championship, where conditions were similar to the last round in the Czech Republic with mud and rain. In fact, however, the Italian Enrico Rinaldi won the overall standings on both days, first catching up with Kouble and then even just overtaking him in the championship. Both are separated by a narrow margin of only three points before the final, which ultimately makes everything possible. But Rinaldi has already indicated that, uncharacteristically for an Italian, he likes to ride in the sand. That could be his advantage in the final round in Hellendorn, the Netherlands.
In third place in the championship behind the two juniors, with a clear points gap, is veteran Maurizio Micheluz, who once again won the small two-stroke class ahead of his compatriot Giuliano Mancusco. „I don’t like it when it rains,” apologised the multiple European champion Micheluz for his second place on the first day of riding still behind his compatriot Giuliano Mancuso on the Fantic.
In the senior category, Arne Domeyer was able to claim the overall victory – the German, who was already European Senior Champion three years ago, won the second day already in the first round: „By then I had built up so much of a lead that I could ride the next stages safely and didn’t have to risk anything.” But due to illness, he is missing one competition, which is why he is not fitghting for the title.
In the women’s category, which was only two rounds instead of three, Justine Martel from France won both days on a KTM.
Rain brought no blessing
Continuous rain on the first day of riding made some changes to the track necessary on the second day and in the end the last extreme test was taken out. There, riders had jammed up several times through no fault of their own because other competitors had blocked the slip roads in front of them. Thus, almost the entire class of the big four-strokes was affected in the first round: On the first day, the class winner Jaromir Romancik was still sixth in the overall ranking – on the second day of riding, it was only enough for the Czech rider to finish 14th in the overall ranking, even though he again won his class.
In addition, one stage section had to be neutralised because a flooded creek made it almost impossible for the first riders to make the times. So it was more a fight against the track than against the other competitors for most of the participants at that point.
Next weekend, on 18 and 19 September, the European Enduro Championship in Poland will enter its second half of the season: The motorsport club from Kielce, „Korona Novi”, has pitched its tents in Piekoszów, on the western outskirts of Kielce.
The club not only has a lot of experience with Enduro, it even hosted the finals of the European Championship in 2018.
Three rounds of the 76 km long course will be ridden every day, which adds up to over 220 km of off-road for the riders. The course includes a cross test, an enduro test and an extreme test to be completed in each round. All tests are within easy reach of the paddock for fans and supporters.
Over 120 riders have registered for this. Although junior rider Kristof Kouble from the Czech Republic is currently the leader in the overall standings, his fiercest rival Enrico Rinaldi from Italy is close on his heels.
In addition, the brothers Rafal and Aleksander Bracik enjoy home advantage and could certainly use that for a success in their cubic capacity classes.
Local hero Maciej Wieckowski even has the chance to take the lead in the small four-stroke motorbike class. But there are also some promising home-grown talents in the juniors with Dawid Domanski, Patryk Kuleszo and Kacper Baklarz, who have already established themselves in the European Championship.

Die zweite Hälfte der Meisterschaft beginnt in Kielce
Am kommenden Wochenende, am 18. und 19. September, geht die Enduro-Europameisterschaft in Polen in die zweite Saisonhälft: Der Motorsportclub aus Kielce, „Korona Novi“ hat dafür die Zelte in Piekoszów, am westlichen Stadtrand von Kielce aufgeschlagen.
Der Verein hat nicht nur viel Erfahrung mit Enduro, er hatte sogar schon 2018 einmal das Finale der Europameisterschaft ausgerichtet.
Gefahren werden täglich drei Runden auf dem 76 km langen Kurs, die addiert über 220 km Offroad für die Fahrer sind. Die Stecke beinhaltet sowohl einen Cross-Test, als auch eine Enduro-Prüfung und einen Extrem-Test, die in jeder Runde zu absolvieren sind. Alle Prüfungen sind vom Fahrerlager aus für Fans und Betreuer gut zu erreichen
Über 120 Fahrer haben sich dafür angemeldet. Zwar ist der Junioren-Fahrer Kristof Kouble aus der Tschechischen Republik aktuell der Führende in der Gesamtwertung, doch sein schärfster Konkurrent Enrico Rinaldi aus Italien ist ihm dicht auf den Fersen.
Dazu genießen die Brüder Rafal und Aleksander Bracik Heimvorteil und könnten das sicherlich für einen Erfolg in ihren Hubraumklassen nutzen. Lokalmatador Maciej Wieckowski hat sogar die Chance die Führung in der Klasse der kleinen Viertakt-Motorräder zu übernehmen. Aber auch bei den Junioren gibt es mit Dawid Domanski, Patryk Kuleszo und Kacper Baklarz einige vielversprechende heimische Talente, die sich schon in der Europameisterschaft etabliert haben.
The competition office has strict anti-contamination measures
type face mask and gloves. Without these safeguards, players will not be admitted

On Saturday, 7 August 2021, the European Enduro Championship started its first day in its second competition in the Czech Republic:
The favourite, Krystof Kouble, lived up to his role and made the most of his home advantage on the demanding course – the Czech rider came back from the first of the three rounds with three special stages each as the overall leader. He did not relinquish this position until the finish. But he had a crash in the very last special stage: „I was so excited and in such a hurry to get back on the bike that I didn’t lose much time. Luckily I didn’t hurt myself,” the Sherco rider was happy to report at the end.
After a crash in the extreme test, championship leader Enrico Rinaldi from Italy had to bury his hopes for another class win ahead of Kouble. Rinaldi took third place in the overall standings.
In second place, however, and surprisingly, was Dominik Olszowy from Poland, who had not yet competed in the European Championship. However, the KTM rider had just returned from the Hardenduro World Championship in Romania with a 10th place, so he was well prepared for the difficult track and difficult special stages. So he was also able to win the class of the over 250 cc four-stroke bikes.
A junior on the smallest displacement 125cc also put in a pleasingly strong performance: Pyry Juupaluoma from Finland rode to a sensational fifth place overall in all displacement classes! He won the junior class of the U21 riders with a lead of almost one minute.
In the women’s category, who did not ride the last extreme test, Nieve Holmes from Great Britain won on the GasGas ahead of the previous leader Justine Martel from France.
On the second day at the second round of the European Enduro Championship in Kozojedy, Czech Republic, the weather was definitely an issue. Although it was dry and warm during the day, the overnight rain had watered the track heavily beforehand.
But even under the more difficult conditions, it was the same riders who decided the victory among themselves: First and foremost local hero Krystof Kouble: „In the first lap it didn’t go well at all. I crashed once in each of the three stages and lost time. Only after half of the competition did I really get going.” But he forgot to mention, that despite the crashes, he had set the best time of all the riders.
For the other competitors also struggled with the demanding stages, which had become even more difficult due to the rain. Italian Enrico Rinaldi finished third on the unfamiliar terrain behind Dominik Olszowy and is right behind Kouble in second place in the championship both, in the overall as in the junior E2 class.
Once again, junior Pyry Juupaluoma from Finland showed a very strong performance: on the smallest displacement 125cc, he again rode to a sensational fifth place overall! The 18-year-old also won the junior class of the U21 riders again. He thus fought his way up to third place in his championship.
The already very demanding track was made a few notches more difficult by the overnight rain: The first lap in particular provided special challenges in the uphills but also in the downhills. Just how difficult it actually was is shown by the fact that almost half of all participants who started on Saturday did not reach the finish on Sunday in the classification. Only 66 of the original 123 riders were able to bring their bikes properly to the parc ferme at the end.
In the senior class, only six of the original 19 participants finished. Winner Martin Gottvald as well as the runner-up, Milan Skuta, were able to use their home advantage because they are used to such conditions.
Nevertheless, there were no complaints, because it was not impossible, as many riders have had shown. But the spirit of enduro racing, of fighting through and arriving at the finish, was again extremely cultivated here. No wonder that the Pole Dominik Olszowy felt so comfortable there: The guest rider, who usually focuses on the Hardenduro World Championships, used the race in the Czech Republic to prepare for the World Team Championships. In three weeks, he will compete for the Polish national team. The 21-year-old set the bar high with a second place in the overall standings on the second day of the race.
The next round of the European Championship, then even in Olszowy’s home country Poland, will be after the „International Six Days Enduro” (ISDE) in September.

On the weekend of 7 and 8 August, the European Enduro Championship will enter its second round in the Czech Republic after three and a half months: the KP Enduro Club has pitched its tents in Kozojedy (- Obecní Úřad), about 70 km west of Prague.
Three and a half rounds will be ridden on the 55 km long track each day, which add up to almost 200 km off-road for the riders. The course includes a cross test as well as an enduro test and an extreme test to be completed in the round.
Over 120 riders have signed up for this. It is true that the Italian riders Enrico Rinaldi and Diego Niccoletti are the favourites, as they are currently ahead of all other participants in the championship standings. But in their Czech homeland, both junior Kristof Kouble and his compatriot Jaromir Romancik should certainly not be underestimated.
