Ben Whitehead gets 8th position for All terrain Cycles in Dudes of Hazard Enduro Race
"Over the weekend of the 16/17th November was the annual Dudes of Hazard 'this is enduro now' race. For the second year running it has been a sell out race with 350 riders. The race's popularity is down to a few factors. Awesome riding in the Scottish highlands, good organisation and really relaxed vibe and for this year Red Bull had sponsored the event with bucking broncos and dj for the evening entertainment.
I travelled up to the race with my friend Ben on the Friday night and shared a hostel with what seemed like every single employee from Hope technology. The weather was quite wet on the Saturday practice but cleared up come race day. I rode well but had a couple of small unschedualed dismounts on stage 3 which put me back into 8th place. I wasn't too upset though as I really came just to ride some quality tracks with some good friends and have a couple of off season beers.
Till next time "
