Gotland Grand national 2018 – the biggest enduro race in the world.

28 October, 2018

Gotland Grand National is the worlds biggest enduro race. It takes place on a small island called Gotland outside the east coast of Sweden.

The race was held the first time in 1984 and 2018 this popular enduro race is now celebrating it’s 35th anniversary. The enduro track is a 22 kilometer long track with a terrain full of slippery limestone, and mud and water holes to get stuck in. You ride for 3 hours, and the rider that can get the most laps down within that time will win. There can be many obstacles along the track, the terrain is difficult, but also the more than 3000 participants from approximately 20 countries 😊. Here we can see ex world champions struggle in the mud side by side with the average dirt bike rider that is looking for a fun challenge together with some friends. This race has a class for everyone. Gotland Grand National, also called GGN, is an experience you’ll never forget.

2018 was an extremely wet experience for the participants. The rain was pouring down the whole night before the race and during the race as well. Many of the participants had to let go of their glasses. Sometimes it looked like more like a battle field than a race. But the atmosphere after the race is always on top how ever wet and hard it’s been. The race, the audience along the track and meeting of new friends with the same passion for dirt bike riding is unbeatable 👍.

The winner of GGN 2018 was Albin Elowson ✊
