The Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE) will return in 2022, scheduled to be contested in Erica, Victoria, on 4-7 May and hosted by the Dandenong Motorcycle Club.

Riders will tackle all elements of off-road terrain in a bid for the coveted title, with three days of traditional enduro racing against the clock before a motocross final on day four.

“Many older enduro enthusiasts will have fond memories of the 1987 A4DE at Erica with the park ferme on the edge of the state forest that contains epic enduro trails in typical Victorian heavily-treed gum forests,” Frank Gogol of the Dandenong Motorcycle Club explained. “With the event scheduled for May, the trail conditions should be prime.

“With the assistance of DELWP (Forests Vic) and Parks Victoria, the trails have been approved for use and are vast within the surrounding state forests. Long trail loops planned with the park ferme at the hub of the expansive trail network.”

Over past years, implications from the coronavirus pandemic, lack of entries and delay in government approvals have seen the event cancelled, with the 2018 event in Cessnock – won by Daniel Milner – the only edition to go ahead since 2016.
