The weekend of Sat/Sun 27/28th November will see the UK's original and most iconic Extreme Enduro take place for the 15th and FINAL time at the World Famous Nantmawr Quarry...
Over the years the Event has seen the best riders in the World tackle a course that challenges them to within an inch of their capabilities and fitness....The biggest names have come and fallen..the biggest names have come and conquered... the crowds have witnessed the best action, in the daylight and night time.. Well everything gets a shelf life and Race Supremo Steve Ireland admits that with land constraints, changing ways, idea's been exhausted etc etc..It is finally time to pull the curtain on this amazing event, but with ONE MORE final special to say bye bye with...
The most famous voice and host of UK motorcycling and most certainly the Voice of the T1, Mr Jack Burnicle is back as your host over the TWO days of action .. and best bits of the event..ie what works for the folk watching will be on offer.

SUNDAY 28th NOVEMBER - THE MICHELIN TOUGH ONE EXTREME ENDURO:
Along with David Knight, Graham Jarvis is the most decorated Rider in the T1 history and with 6 wins each they both know a thing about what worked... 2hrs..2.5hrs..3hrs..Sprint etc ...Well as Graham Stated in his best selling Book a few years back in the TOUGH ONE CHAPTER- 2hrs is about right as Riders hit a wall (literally!!) and the racing dissapears from the event...with just completing the time allowed to Steve's Chequered Flag being the objective.. And with a nice, neat , totally spectatable course to follow and a lap time of approx 10 mins for the fastest riders - It has been decided to go with the original and easy to follow format of a STRAIGHT 2HRS RACE - Winner taking a £1000 prize ....But there is a very exciting twist..to win the events total of £2k..
So many folk said that the "KING OF THE QUARRY" or " DASH FOR CASH" that ran at the last T1 before Covid hit was the best spectacle of racing that they had seen... 5 laps of bar to bar action ...crowd screaming, air horns going off, Jack Burnicle struggling to keep up with the pace on a condensed quarry base course ... all chasing a £1000 prize...ITS BACK!!! The top 7 from the Overall finshers in the main T1 race will take to the line for an epic finish to close the days racing and give the spectators massive value for their entry ticket.
