You and your machine need to comply with the ACU Enduro Standing Regulations , a complete copy can be viewed by clicking the link above. The following are sections we have had questions about:
Front and rear – Unless otherwise stated in the Supplementary Regulations tyres must be ‘Enduro’ type to current FIM specification with DOT or E mark imprinted (see diagram at the end of Enduro Section).
Please note: Some Motocross Tyres do not comply with Road Traffic Act Regulations and are not permitted for events using the Public Highway. Only tyres which appear on the tyre manufacturers range catalogue or tyre specification list as suitable for use on the Public Highway for the motorcycle entered, may be used. They may be of Trial, Trail or Enduro pattern with a depth of tread not more than 13mm at the time of manufacture.
ESR.34 ENVIRONMENTAL MATS
Where any servicing of a motorcycle is being undertaken, riders must provide and use an environmental mat to protect the ground. These mats are to be removed by the competitors after use. The minimum dimensions of the mat will be at least equal to the length of the motorcycle and the width of the handlebars.
Please note that there is no pedestrian or vehicular access to the refuelling areas. This is particularly important at the Radnor Forest location as anybody attempting access in a vehicle will be DRIVING AGAINST THE COURSE and a serious accident could result.

Date for 2020 Event 25th and 26th June 2020
Entry Date will be announced after 2020 ACU dates have been confirmed but will be late March early April via the ACU online system
Just a heads up that there is a big bowling competition in Llandrindod the week of the Welsh 2 Day and some of the guest houses/hotels are getting booked up already
Clerk of the Course
Welcome to the 2019 Welsh 2-Day Enduro. At the time of writing this introduction, course planning for this year’s event is well underway with a view to introducing some new going and some variation to the successful format of recent years. The organising committee are grateful to the many enduro enthusiasts who assist us with course planning and preparation, along with liaison with local people, and their assistance is invaluable in setting up the course for you to ride.
A key part of the success of the ‘Welsh’ is due to the level of support that the event enjoys amongst the local community. It is this support that the event is particularly dependent upon both now and in the future. Please do all you can to minimise the inevitable disruption that the passage of 500 competitors around the course will have on local people and their daily routine. Give them a wave and acknowledge your gratitude for being able to ride in the glorious countryside of Mid Wales. In these days of increasing constraints on land usage, and the bureaucratic workload that this entails, we need to do all we can to demonstrate a responsible attitude and minimise the impact of our sport on the environment.
We are continuing with the professional refuelling service for this year’s event that was introduced in 2017. This removes the need for competitors to sort their own arrangements, which usually meant support crews transporting not insignificant quantities of fuel to meet riders around the course. Equally importantly it ensures that we, as Organisers, can demonstrate that we are doing everything possible to ensure that we meet the requirements of environmental and safety legislation. There will again be a marked Service Route for support crews who still wish to meet their riders around the course to look after their needs, other than refuelling. Please ensure that this route is followed each day and servicing takes place at the designated areas only as the route has again been set up to minimise disruption to residents. Full details of this will be available on the W2D website closer to the event.
We have continued with the format of recent years, with the same route for both days with day two ridden in reverse to that of day one. This also allows us to keep the use of public roads and interaction with local traffic to a minimum.
As always, we are grateful of the support of many organisations and individuals, without whom the event could not take place. The list is too long to mention everybody by name, but particular acknowledgement must go to the many landowners over which the course travels, along with Natural Resources Wales, the Crown Estate and both Local and County Councils.
And finally, enjoy the event, ride safe and keep the competitive part of the event to the off-road sections, particularly the special tests.
