The first Sandokan Enduro was held on the 14th of December 2013, in Madeira, Portugal. A group of friends decided to organize in just a couple of weeks an event showcasing their vision of Enduro Mountain Biking.
Beyond their MTB holidays and guiding activity, Bikulture showed that they can also put together quality sport events and promote the beautiful island of Madeira as a thrilling destination.
Exciting singletracks, a mix of flowy and technical descending Special Stages, uphill transfers both pedalling on the bike and with uplifts vehicles, and most of all, a friendly atmosphere for locals and visitors. Every participant had a big smile at the end of the day!
Bikulture wish to thank their partners:
Chimpanzee (for giving energy to riders and organizers with their natural bars and drinks);
EVOC (and Portuguese distributor Geonatlife, for the prizes of the lottery);
Zimtstern (clothing); Commençal (bikes);
Meio (race plates, frame stickers and t-shirts);
and SRA, the Regional Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources, for allowing this event to take place legally.
