The racing season in SloEnduro is over for weeks now but the final event, the award presentation day, is yet to come.

Traditionally we will hold this event in Ajdovščina for the fourth year in a row. In Hiša mladih we will be handing out a series of trophies on Saturday November 19th for all the achievements in the past season. The official program starts at 5pm in the bar. Before that we will do some riding in the area.

First of all we will congratulate all the top ranked riders in the SloEnduro final standings. In men’s category Vid Peršak (Orbea Enduro Crew) managed to defend his title by winning the final race after taking two more earlier in the season.

Kenda SuperStage

There will also be some special prizes from series sponsors. Kenda has been with us all season long and also stepped in with Kenda SuperStages, one at every race. We have already awarded each of the Kenda stage winners and now we have more goodies for the ones with best overall times. The 2016 Kenda SuperStage champions are Tadej Razpet and Yana Dobnig.

O’Neal rookie of the year

O’Neal will once again present the best rookie of the season. This is the highest ranked rider in his first SloEnduro season. This year the title goes to Daniel Schemmel (Cube Action Team) who also won the opening race Enduro 3 Camini.

iXS SuperRider

iXS is chipping in with prizes for the riders who managed to enter and finish all the series events. To make it harder all 16 events (SloEnduro and 4Fun) are included in the deal. This year’s SuperRiders are Miha Spruk and Grega Nagode.

Best event

This is a prestigious title and 15 organizers are in the mix to take it. Last year it went to Enduro Cerkno who closely edged out Enduro Grozni. Black Hole Enduro won both years before that. We’ll find out the name of the best organizer in 2016 on November 19th in Ajdovščina.

And thanks to…

Besides all the trophies, titles and prizes it will also be the chance to express gratitude to everyone who made the season happen. We are all SloEnduro so basically we are thanking each other that we pulled off another one. We’ll thank to each of the organizers because without the events there would be no series. The sponsors are just as important: Keindl Sport with its brands Cube and iXS and Kenda Tire as the biggest supporters, then Unior Tools and Velo d.d. with O’Neal. is our link to the world. It would be hard to make the series happen without these partners.

Then there are the people who spent their time so the series was able to reach its goals. Andrej Dekleva was in charge of media coverage while Matej Okoren and Nejc Bole we supplying him with the photos. One again we were excited to see each of the video reports by crew consisting of Tine Lenart and Marko Rman. Mags Timing led by Aleš Makuc made sure each rider was timed on course. Dan Prohart was setting up the venues, Nejc Černilogar designed the number plates and other materials, Nina Rupnik translated our regulations and Anže Žabjek help out with the logistics.

One big THANK YOU to all at the end of the season.

See you in Ajdovščina
