The hugely popular Grassroots Enduro Series have announced a five-round calendar for 2020.
Held as one-day events, the championship operates a unique blind race format meaning no practice day beforehand.
Riders can attempt the stages twice within the time allowance, which usually offers plenty of riding time on the day.
