A full entry of 196 riders will tackle Diss MCC’s Santon Enduro on Sunday 23rd February for the 1st round of the 2020 GH M/cs Eastern Enduro Championship. The 12-mile course of the sandy terrain of Thetford forest is looking in good shape, except for a few fallen trees, and as usual is very dry for this time of the year.
ACU Eastern Enduro Champion Luke Parker (Matt Pope 450 Kawasaki) will be defending his crown but expect strong competition from the likes of 2019 event winner Ben Cole on a GH M/cs 450 Husky and former event winners such as Jake Nicolls (450 Buildbase Honda), Jason Morland GH MC 450 Yamaha and former ACU Eastern MX champ Shaun Southgate Herts MX, Honda UK – 450 Honda . Out of centre riders who should be in the hunt for top 3 finish include Roger Holland on an ET James 450 KTM.
The expert and clubman classes have good representation with the entries for the event filling up with 48 hours.
The start is 09.00 Forest Ride 22 on the Thetford to Mundford Road IP27 0TR. First rider on the test is 09.05 and Championship should be riding 6 laps of the course, Experts 5, Clubman 4 and Sportsman 3.
