Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) in 2009 and beyond!

Canadians will finally have a bonafide Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) in 2009 and beyond.

Details are:

A 4 event, 8 race series organized by World Enduro Canada (WEC) (see www.worldendurocanada.com)

Dates and locations in 2009 are:

July 4/5 Pincher Creek AB
July 11/12 Okanogan Valley BC

September 12/13 Quebec TBA
September 19/20 Parry Sound, Ontario

Dates and locations are subject to change at this early time

The competition format is based on the World Enduro Championship, 3 different (Cross, Extreme and Enduro) timed special tests and shorter loops of trails connecting the test. WEC purchased a computerized timing system that uses programmable transponders the system provides prompt, accurate results.

An important point is the event offers a pro purse. The value riders have to sponsors increased overnight, the plan is improve the marketability of Canadian
riders, give sponsors good return on their investment, stimulate the off-road motorcycle market, decide who the fastest off-road riders in Canada are in both Pro and Amateur classes, provide spectators entertainment and most of all give the competitors an overall positive experience.

Incentives will be in place for riders to travel to the four events which are scored separately each of the two days. Arrangements have been made for a motorcycle transportation package through sponsor Brian Kurtz Trucking, Guelph, On. For $700 a bike, gear bag, 2 spare tires or pop-tent will be transported to each of the 2 'Away' events and back. Motorycles will be delivered to each event site. Also any Canadian-based rider who crosses the Manitoba/Ontario border and competes in the entire series gets a free entry to the 'away' events. Entry fees are set at $100 per event, each competitor must purchase or rent a transponder for $40 and join the MCC.

The motto of the CEC is "The Fastest Rider Wins".

Because the format of the competition aligns with what happens in most of the world WEC expects Canadian riders to become more competitive in international events in the future.
