2023 EnduroGP of Slovakia onboard track review
Ride onboard for a preview the Cross, Extreme and Enduro tests and terrain at the 2023 EnduroGP of Slovakia in Gelnica.
FIM track inspector Maurizio Micheluz is as ever your guide to the short (three-minute/0.6km) Extreme test which opens the laps and is more about technical riding in the trees than hammering logs and rocks.
That’s followed in the lap by a 5.4km Cross test which begins on a moto track and finishes on grass fields and finally he previews the “typical Slovakian” Enduro test ending the lap which is 4.7km long and features roots, rocks and mud holes.
Take note, this track preview doesn’t include part of the track…this weekend riders face two enduro tests, so the missing test here is 5.5km and the longest of the GP which is also in the forest. That makes four tests per lap for three laps.
Action starts with the Super Test this evening beginning from 6pm local time. The first riders are away tomorrow, Saturday, at 9am local time for a 70km and scheduled seven-hour day to a paddock finish time of 16:15. Day two is 5km longer.
