Round 4 of the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Championship was held in picturesque Glen Daniel, West Virginia, at the Hidden Valley Golf Course. Yes, GOLF COURSE! How many of us have dreamed ripping wide open across the 18thfairway at our local course, or ripping through a sand trap? At the Full Gas, riders were able to do exactly that. Racers competed all weekend long over the golf course cross test, and the wooded endure test, for bragging rights for fastest of the weekend. These races aren’t about race craft and endurance. They are all about speed, and how far you’re willing to twist the grip on your bike. Round 5 of the Full Gas Sprint Enduro Championship will be held at the Harleywood Sprint, in Abingdon, Virginia on June 15thand 16th.
