Austrian Enduro Championship gears up for a 10-round 2016 series…

With a little over two months until the 2016 Austrian Enduro Championship begins, the series is set for nine rounds between April and September.

Leading the way is defending champion Bernhard Schöpf. Dominant in 2015, the 24-year-old claimed an impressive six wins from 12 starts.

After a mixed season, runner-up Patrick Neisser will look to get the better of Schöpf this time around.

Another hot tip for the title is Matthias Wibmer, who was third in 2015, plus brothers Michael and Walter Feichtinger.

The championship, which features a mix of sprint enduro and two-hour cross country races, plus classic enduro gets underway at a new venue in St. Peter an Kammersberg on April 9.
