Like so many things, Erzbergrodeo’s famous hard enduro classic has unfortunately been canceled for 2020 and 2021. While the ongoing pandemic has closed it and a host of other racing and riding events temporarily, however, there was just no way he would be not coming back ASAP.
Indeed, from January 2022, the organizers are preparing to host the 26th Erzbergrodeo in Styria later this year. If all goes as planned, it should take place June 16-19, 2022 – and the level of excitement among attendees and enthusiasts is high.
“We currently have 1,200 registered participants from all over Europe. We are in close contact with interested drivers from other continents, so we have to wait for the Corona-related development with all travel restrictions,” said event organizer Karl Katoch. speed week.
“We can assume that in April we will have reached a crowded starting field with the usual top names for the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo. The Erzbergrodeo will provide extra explosiveness in 2022 as a round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship concluded Katoch.
Obviously, there are several months left between the end of January and June 2022. As we have already seen throughout this pandemic, circumstances can and do change very quickly as new variants of concerns and strategies of attenuation appear. This makes the logistics of planning an event like this, which was already a challenge, even more difficult.
Still, organizers are optimistic. Everyone craves a respite from the stresses of the world, and what better way to find it than this particular brand of craziness? Sun, dirt, mud and motorbikes – it’s all good for the soul, even if your washing machine might not have kind words for you afterwards.
