In a spectacular (and well received) U turn it looks like UK Gravity Enduro Series organiser Steve Parr could be back at the helm for 2013.
Following issues with sponsors and timing Steve announced earlier this week that:
“It’s with much thought and sadness, that I have to inform you, I will not be organising UK Gravity Enduro in 2013. There are several reasons, issues with title sponsor not paying their bill, horrendous timing at all but one round and My own personal situation.
I would like to thank all the sponsors and helpers from the past two fantastic years, but most of all the riders for believing in the series and putting it right up there with the best.
The format of proper “Enduro” in the UK is now moving nicely, with quite a few races and mini series in the pipeline + BC involvement, I look forward to seeing it grow even bigger than XC and DH in years to come. I apologise to anyone effected by the issues with the series”
But it looks like today has seen a change of heart from Steve with the announcement:
The news comes just 24 hours after Halo British Downhill Series organiser Si Paton announced that he will be running a small number of Gravity Enduro events in 2013. The rumour has it there will be 3 events from Si – two pre-season and one later in the year after the main DH season has finished.
Looks like we’re going to get some healthy competition both on and off the track in 2013.
Stay tuned for more when we get it!
