3° EDITION - MAY 2 nd / 4 th 2024

Sulcis Enduro Raid 2023, real enduro in Sardinian land

The second edition of the Sulcis Enduro Raid, a non-competitive event for enduro and maxi enduro motorcycles, took place in Sulcis in Sardinia from 29 April to 1 May.

The event organized by Claudio Gambula and Marco Rosso, respectively the souls of Sbarbytour and Adventourer, saw around 60 riders at the start, also from Belgium, Poland and Switzerland, for three days with 700 km of dirt roads in the splendid scenery of the Sulcis Iglesiente, with mule tracks that have reached ancient abandoned mines (some restored and can be visited), lost sheepfolds, but also beautiful beaches and rocky coasts.

The itinerary, differentiated between enduro and maxi enduro and with navigation along the very precise GPS tracks provided by the organization, also included optional hard timed sectors, and a hard enduro Extreme Trophy. This beautiful formula allowed all the riders to complete the entire course, allowing the best to compete in the most difficult stretches. And there were also moments of leisure such as refreshments in the sheepfold with women in folkloric clothes or evening aperitifs with beer, platters and music.  

Two big names at the start: Franco Picco, living legend of international enduro (29 participations in the Dakar, 2 victories in the Rally of the Pharaohs) and Sonny Goggia, Italian Hard Enduro Champion, who performed acrobatic passages. 

And last but not the least, significant was the participation of many women, which is very important for the organizers who aim to spread the enduro in both sexes.  

At the end of the three days of the raid, all the participants were very satisfied with the experience and the organization, and unanimously declared that they wanted to be at the start of the next edition as soon as possible. This can only be the greatest gratification for the efforts made by the organizers and staff, a stimulus for an even more exciting third edition.
