The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series (FGSE) is pleased to announce the addition of a fifth round to its 2015 schedule. Taking place on May 2 and 3 at CJ Raceway in Newburg, West Virginia, round five will also serve as the AMA East Coast Qualifier for this year’s International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Slovakia.
The additional round will follow the typical Full Gas Sprint Enduro two-day format with two special tests, including one grass track “cross test” and a woods loop “enduro test” that racers will compete on multiple times throughout the weekend. The direction of the special tests will be reversed for the second day of racing.
“The AMA was intrigued by our format and how closely our special tests resembled what racers will compete on at the ISDE,” said FGSE series founder Jason Hooper. “When the AMA asked if we were interested in adding a round to be used as an ISDE qualifier, we jumped at the opportunity! Watching two ISDE events in person is what sparked my interest in starting this series and I’m very excited to be a part of Team USA’s qualifying process.”
Riders that wish to try and qualify for a Team USA Junior, Women’s, Senior, or Club Team position must submit a letter of intent to the AMA prior to the event. Visit this link to download a PDF of the LOI application.
Online pre-entry for the event is now open and it is suggested that racers utilize this feature as with the additional riders riding LOI we have put a 225 rider amateur cap on entries. Click here to access our online pre-registration form.
The addition of the ISDE Qualifier to this round of the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series will not change the format of the race or the classes offered. There will be a full range of youth, amateur, vet and pro classes available over the weekend. Since this round was announced after the beginning of the series, an additional round drop will be given to racers who are chasing year-end series points.
The next round of the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Series will take place May 2 and 3 at CJ Raceway in Newburg, West Virginia. For more information on the series, please visitwww.fullgasenduro.com.
