YT Industries set to partner with Southern Enduro Champs for 2022
The UK's enduro scene has enjoyed a similar boom to what we saw with the uptake in bike sales last year and with the country reopening, enduro in the UK is stronger than it's ever been. For the 2022 leg YT Industries has joined forces with the Southern Enduro Champs offering some mega prizes for the winning male and female, read on for all of the details.

The Southern Enduro Series was founded back in 2016 by Scott Fitzgerald and it consists of eight venues across the south of the UK. Since its humble beginning, the series has welcomed over four thousand racers.
The biggest and most anticipated race of the series is the Southern Enduro Champs that takes place in Minehead, Somerset and last year it saw 670 competitors racing to take the podium. It's a venue that mixes steep and techy riding over natural singletrack, making it a highlight of the Southern Enduro Series.
It takes place over the course of a weekend with practice kicking off on Saturday followed by seeding on the Saturday afternoon. Racing then starts on the Sunday over six stages in the traditional enduro format where the fastest time accumulated over all of the stages takes the win.
People may be asking where YT Industries fits in all of this but the brand's involvement is actually rather exciting. The winning male and female of the day will win a YT Capra 29 Core 3 to continue their racing career aboard. I say racing career because not only will the podium toppers win a brand spanking bike but each winner will receive two sets of riding wear, mechanical support at the YT Mill in Surrey and at select Rolling Circus Events as well as race entry to the remainder of the 2022 Southern Enduro series through to 2023.
Along with those sweet prizes, the Rolling Circus will be present over the weekend to provide tech advice, test rides on the YT fleet, and beer.
