After a year without a race in Oppdal, they will again be the location for one of the stops in the 80/20 Enduro Series.
We are happy to have Oppdal back as a location and are looking forward to new and varied tracks.

We will for the 2018 season share points with Enduro Sweden Sesion.
For the 2018 season we will give you the opportunity to make the best point result from races in ESS count in 80/20 Enduro Series.
The existing practice is that only the 4 best results from the 5 races in 80/20 Enduro Series counts. This means that if you dont finish a race, or can't start, you will still have the shot for a good total.
The new thing now is that if you get better points from a race in the ESS, this points can count instead of the least good one in 80/20. If you for example start in 5 races in Norway, and 2 in Sweden, the 4 best points from Norway will count. And if one race in Sweden gave you more points than one of the 4 in Norway, this will count as the 4th race in the total in 80/20.
The exception is 80/20 Hafjell Enduro and ESS Gesunda which is the last race of the season, and the same weekend.
Only Men, Women and Master Men/Women will count in the shared point series.
There is still a lot of snow most places in Norway, and it might be a nice start to the season to race ESS Göteborg Enduro the 14th and 15th of April.
We hope this can help share the enjoyment of enduro and the #spiritofenduro.
Important notice! We are planning on an extra stage Saturday night. This will make it 6 stages, with even more speed and flow. The stage on Saturday will most likely be raced blind. The rest of the 5 stages will be open for training in the same compact area as in 2017. Plenty of time for training before the Saturday night stage. Welcome!
We will coming weeks open the registration for 80/20 Enduro Series 2018!
We are still working on the 5th race of the season. Things are coming together and soon ready.
A new feature of the year is that you can buy your own chip for 5 years. If you won't buy a chip you can rent one for the race you want to start. More info on this here. (norwegian)
The 2018 season will have a new class for those who are more focused on riding new trails in new places, an maybe don't have the ambition for the top of the results list!
We precent you the Explorer class!
Participants in the new Explorer class will start on the same line as the other classes, and will have their time taken in the same way as the others.
Participants in the Explorer class can start together without the 20 secound gap if they want to.
If you choose to start in the Explorer class you do not get points, and are not gathering points for the total in the series.
There will be presented a result list with times of each racer, but not sorted by race time. That way participants can compare times with your buddy, neighbor, son or daughter, or the other classes, but without the same competition pressure.
We established this class based on feedback from you guys, and hope this may lead to even more people will try out enduro racing.
