The FIM has reached an agreement with ABC Communication, the promoter of the SuperEnduro World Championship, cementing the future of the indoor enduro discipline for an additional five years.

ABC Communication, who operates the FIM Maxxis EnduroGP World Championship, has hosted SuperEnduro for the last seven years, showcasing the sport to over 300,000 live viewers through its streaming and highlights packages.

“We would like to thank the FIM for renewing its confidence in us for the next five years,” said ABC Communication CEO Bastien Blanchard.

“We strongly believe in this discipline which although still young has great potential thanks to its riders and the spectacular action it provides to the fans. We will continue our efforts to promote and extend media coverage in order to grow the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship outside of Europe.”

FIM president Jorge Viegas added: “The FIM is very proud to be able to have this opportunity to extend the contract with ABC Communication for a championship that has become more and more successful over the time it has been in their control.

“We are confident this path will continue. Moreover, the renewal and extension of this agreement reinforces the trust that the FIM has in ABC Communication to maintain the development of this spectacular indoor championship, especially outside of Europe.”

The current SuperEnduro series returns to action 9 February at Budapest in Hungary for the penultimate round of the five-stop championship.
