For the last 20 plus years the August Bank Holiday weekend sees the madness that is Dawn to Dusk enduro take place at Walters Arena in South Wales. 4,000 acres of disused open cast coal mine and forestry tracks. This year some 800 riders took part, with youth races, a 6 hour race, 12 hour race and of course the marathon 24 hour race.
The weather was changeable to say the least, with rain and drizzle being more or less a constant, it made for interesting tracks which led to challenging riding conditions.
Desert Rose Racing took 11 riders, with 6 taking part in the 24 hour race and 5 taking part in the 6 hour race. The support team were on hand all weekend and in particular through the night for the 24 hour race, with fuel being topped up, lights and head torches cleaned off and words of encouragement through the small hours.
