For a racy look this season, be one of the first to get kitted out with BMW’s brand new Carbon Enduro helmet, a recent addition to BMW’s sporty range of Rider Equipment. Weighing just 1,070 grams for a small shell and 1,170 grams for a large, it is the lightest enduro helmet on the market. Its ultra low weight is due to a carbon and arimide outer shell and a single plastic inner shell. For optimum safety, the helmet has neck straps integrated in the chin straps which prevent the helmet from twisting.

Edmondson Crowned King of the Hill

Edmondson Crowned King of the Hill

WOR Events ran something rather special on Saturday evening, as Berwyn Leisure Park, near Oswestry, played host to both the sixth round of the Putoline XC Championship series and a WOR Event on Sunday. However, Saturday evening saw an extraordinary hill-climb challenge, attempted by many but conquered by one Relentless Suzuki Enduro rider, Paul Edmondson. Set on a steep valley side, the course ran for approximately 750 metres on loose shale and grass, with virtually no run-up to the hill. A nasty kicker right at the start of the climb saw riders lose momentum and have to fight for every inch gained up the nigh-on impossible incline.

Sixth Place S2 Finish for Pignotti in Sardinia

KTM S2 rider Attilio Pignotti came away from two difficult day's riding in the port city of Olbia in Sardinia with a sixth place in S2 to pick up enough championship points to finish fourth in the current standings. Pignotti struggled with his feeling for the bike and the track, which was a new venue on the Supermoto world championship series. The Italian and his team were unable to arrive at a good setting for the rear suspension and instead he chose to ride a nervous and rather conservative race for a solid sixth and salvage more points to add to his total for the season.

Adventure riding has certainly taken off recently, with the TV show Long Way Round, Long Way Down and also explorers like Nick Sanders showing people that with just a few months of preperation, a motorbike and a full tank of petrol that you too can explore the world and go to places that many normal tourists wouldn't get to see. Does that sound like something you would like to do?

Yamaha Monster Motocross Team's Josh Coppins emphatically aced his first victory of the 2008 MX1-GP World Championship with a double moto sweep at a sun-drenched and packed Talkessel circuit in Teutschenthal for the Grand Prix of Germany. The eighth round of fifteen in the series saw the Kiwi take his first spoils since Bulgaria 2007 and his first double since Mantova 14 months ago; rising to second position in the standings as a consequence. David Philippaerts was fourth and keeps the championship lead, meaning both YZ450FM riders are now 'one and two' and Yamaha head the manufacturer's table by 19 points. The old Talkessel layout provided its usual mix of elevation changes and cambered turns. The majority of the soil of the fast course had been ripped and prepared and grew rougher in places but the grey hard-pack dirt remained slippery and stony in others. 34,000 spectators enjoyed some excellent weather.
