The action-loaded side event celebrated it's return to the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Arena.

spectators at the Erzbergrodeo XIII Endurocross side event and grabbed a
well deserved first row starting spot in the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo.
The rest is history...
Eligible to participate are all riders who have registered for the Erzbergrodeo .
participants of the Erzbergrodeo Endurocross will compete on electric
powered KTM Freeride E-XC motorcycles, which will be entirely supplied
by KTM. All riders will therefore compete on completely identical
material, which will add even more excitement to the race.
The Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Endurocross will take place on a specifically built
Endurocross track within the newly designed Actionzone inside the
Erzbergrodeo Arena. The offroad parcours will feature several obstacle
sections which have to be absolved by each competitor (no chicken
lines!). The level of difficulty will be tuned according to the
performance of the KTM Freeride E-XC and will provide maximum riding fun
for each skilled Enduro rider.
