Famous for its intense fans as much as the racing, the GetzenRodeo will again stand as the final round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship in Germany – tickets on sale September 15.

With a German champion elect Mani Lettenbichler on home soil (the Red Bull KTM rider is unbeaten with four wins from the opening four rounds of the 2023 Hard Enduro World Championship season), and a fantastic if intense venue in Grießbach, the GetzenRodeo promises much this November.

The reality is the German could have sewn up the series already if he wins in Hixpania, Spain but the welcome and the atmosphere inside the Getzen forest is like nowhere else.

Unlike the previous edition in 2021 when regulations meant limited numbers for spectators, there's no limit on the number of tickets this year so basically fill year boots. The organisers also say the track layout will be slightly different too, allowing for more spectators.

GetzenRodeo ’23 will have a new race format which will include a Friday night prologue, before the Saturday qualifiers and main ‘rodeo’ race for the HEWC Pro riders in the afternoon.

Race dates this year are November 3-4 with tickets going on sale September 15 with prices at €30.00 for adults and children up to 14 years free. More information: www.getzenrodeo.net

Making a weekend of it? Grießbach is literally just up the road from Zschopau, home to EnduroGP rounds and a fantastic enduro museum. Check it out: www.deutschesenduromuseum.de
