Tire manufacturer Mitas has reached an agreement with the international event Hixpania Hard Enduro to become its official event sponsor. The event will take place in the Romanesque medieval area of Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia) in Spain, from 3rd to 5th November 2017.
Luka Mežan, Mitas Moto Racing & Sponsorship Manager, says: “Mitas has a strong connection with hard enduro racing, having supported it for several years through our high quality tires. We are delighted to become an official partner for such an exciting event, which I am sure will deliver an unforgettable experience for riders and spectators.”
The last race will be named 'MITAS El Camino Perdido'. This is the only race in the world that starts inside a cave, making it one of the most impressive and best supported of the hard enduro season. The name ‘MITAS El Camino Perdido’ (in English ‘MITAS The Lost Way’) refers to the famous St James Way path that crosses the race track and leads to Santiago de Compostela.
This year more than 300 riders will start Hixpania Hard Enduro, among them will be the most prominent names of hard enduro racing looking to take the honours at this prestigious event.
