Last Saturday the international enduro series had the traditional end of season gathering in Ajdovščina where they presented the trophies to the most successful riders and teams of the past season. We also presented some special titles and the best event of the season.

You already know who are the overall winners. Vid Peršak and Petra Bernhard (both Team Dorrong) took the overall trophies. Find all the overall podiums listed below.

But let’s start from the back. It is also the best kept secret all the way to the end who got the most votes for the “best event” title. For third year in a row it’s Enduro Cerkno. The event organized by Pedal Racing Team and held in Bike park Cerkno was also an EWS Qualifier event.

Vid Peršak also won the Kenda SuperStage trophy with the best total from all SuperStages of the season. No women’s title this year since none of the ladies finished all the stages.

The SuperRiders - the ones finishing all the stages of the season in SloEnduro and 4Fun series combined - are the same guys as last year: Miha Spruk (Calcit Bike Team) and Grega Nagode (Energijateam.com). They will continue to race without paying a single entry fee for another season and they also received wildcards for the home EWS round at Petzen and Jamnica.


Grega, Mihi and Daniel, top three in 4Fun series - first two are also SuperRiders

Then there’s the O’Neal Rookie of the year title for the rider with most points in his first SloEnduro season. It goes to Premek Tejchman (Cze, Haven Kelly’s Factory Team), one of the fastest Czech riders, who took part in four SloEnduro rounds and ended up in 6th overall.

For the first time in SloEnduro history the best team of the season is not Slovenia! This time it’s the Austrian Team Dorrong Enduro, also an EWS team. It is the team of Austrian riders Petra Bernhard, Gerd Skant, Cri Maierhofer and Bernd Dorrong and there’s also the fastest Slovenian and now three time SloEnduro champion on the team, Vid Peršak.

Two Slovenian squads rounded out the team podium, Kamplc Racing Team in second and Energijateam.com in third place.

Too bad we didn’t get to ride this time, the weather was not that nice, but we’re sure many will be returning to Ajdovščina over the winter to ride those mind blowing trails.

We are working on the 2018 calendar. There will be some changes to the series, we will let you know more soon!
