Unimpressed by the current situation, the Spanish Hard Enduro Cup of the Moto Club Calahorra took place in Arnedo, La Rioja, in mid-March - and even set a record with 265 registered riders!

In the end, Mario Roman could secure the first place and Teodor Kabakchiev, who completed his first race in Spain in the team of the legendary Graham Jarvis, landed on the second place. Third place was secured by Josu Artola and the winner of the women's class, Sandra Gómez, was able to draw on her excellent trial skills during the race, which secured her an impressive 18th place overall.
