CAPTURED – NOVEMBERKASAN 2014
Traditional enduro is alive and well in Sweden – the Novemberkasan is living proof.
99 years young, the race is one of the toughest and most demanding about. A hellish day of racing sees riders compete for up to 14 hours – the majority of which is at night.
Enduro to the core, Novemberkasan sees battle tough natural terrain, miles upon miles of forestry trails and more often than not lots of bottomless bog pits that catch out the unwary. But with thousands of Swedes setting up camp along the most difficult of sections there’s plenty of help on hand to pull riders out of trouble.
For the sixth time running Joakim Ljunggren delivered a master class in night-time riding to take a commanding victory. Crossing the finish line just before 2am, Joakim rewrote the Swedish history books to tie the win list as one of the most successful riders ever to take on Novemberkasan. Setting himself up nicely, Ljunggren now has the chance to break that record when the event turns 100 years old in 2015.
