Ever wondered how a Hard Enduro course is put together?

Contrary to popular belief, the competitors aren’t just dumped in the middle of nowhere with a motorbike, a compass and a jerry can of fuel and told to get on with it. It takes weeks of intense preparation by the race’s organisers to make sure that riding in the harsh terrain is at least feasible – if still very difficult!

Check out the above video as the organisers of this year’s Red Bull Romaniacs hack a trail through the notoriously tough course near Sibiu, Romania ahead of this year’s event on 2nd-6th July.
