The Blast – Epic Enduro Weekends

It’s not a race, it’s not a holiday…so what is it? It is the best of both worlds!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Blast is 2.5 days of riding epic single tracks, just-for-fun racing Special stages and hanging out with 19 other like minded people.

Accommodation, meals, uplifts and race timing are all included in the package. You just have to show up and ride!

Make sure you are fit and skilled though! This event is aimed at the experienced rider who can handle technical trails, doesn’t mind exposure, drop offs, rocks, roots, berms and about 1200m of climbing per day!

What does a Blast Epic Enduro Weekend cost?

For 2014 the price is set at € 449,- per person. However if there are 15 or more participants, the price drops to € 399,- for the entire group!
Why? well for the simple reason that we can spread the costs over a larger group,we think it is fair to pass that on to you!

Hey! That’s more then last year!

Yup, we raised the price! Not because we want to get a Porsche Carrera S but to make the Blast even better.
For this year we have included ALL lunches in the price, and added an extra uplift on the Sunday to get in more trails and give the tired legs a rest.

3 nights in a quality accommodation

I have to travel quite far, and want to stay a bit longer, is this possible?
