The third round of the Asian Enduro Series heads east of Malaysia at the end of this month to the sultanate of Brunei Darassalam. Nestled on the north-west coast of Borneo, this quiet, little country is still covered in 70% jungle and while it may be short on space the terrain and weather more than make for a tough race!
7 stages over 2 days are what await those willing to take up the challenge for the Royal Brunei Enduro 2018 on the 28-30 September. Now in its second year, there have been a few changes to help for a smooth event and a lot of spectators, including 3 stages with spectator and rider shuttles so people can access more of the jungle!
With last years winner, Gabriel Amigo III, not returning due to prior national racing commitments, it means we will have a new person pulling on the prestigious winners jersey this year. Riders like Indonesian chargers Koko M. Padli and Yoris Sahara, as well as current points third position holder, Sangmok Lim from South Korea will be up against a field of fast locals and internationals, so it should make for a tight tussle at the top of the leaderboard!
At half way point of the series, this round in Brunei offers riders a chance to firmly establish themselves in the running to be crowned champion of their category. With 1 round left in Thailand after Brunei you can be sure everyone will be pushing themselves to the limit for a good result.
