The end of the UK Gravity Enduro Series!
UK Gravity Enduro organiser Steve Parr has today confirmed that the series will stop running, with immediate effect with the remaining two races of 2018 being cancelled.
The following announcement was recently posted on by Steve on social media:
It’s with deep regret and sadness, we have to announce that rounds 4&5 of UKGE are going to be cancelled. I’m truly sorry that it has come to this.
Putting on a series of this size costs so much money and time that it needed rider and industry support, but both were down on previous years. I could go onto blame things here, but I’m not going to, just give you fact.
If the series were to continue, then the series will put itself into debt. I have not taken any money from the series whatsoever since I started work on it in 2017. With no other personal income over that period, there is no way I can pay off any debt. Once I have paid off suppliers from round 3 I will let everyone know what is left and what they can expect to receive as a partial refund.
We could just continue to take your money, but I’m not a crook. Unfortunately, we just haven’t been able to generate enough entries to make the last 2 rounds happen.
This is my fault alone and I will have to carry that burden till the end of my days and never organise another race.
Deepest regret and huge apologies,
We would like to say a big thanks to Steve Parr for their all their efforts with the UK Gravity Enduro Series and supporting MoreDirt.
