The DOWATEK HardEnduroSeries Germany announces final updates before the year-end – Registration starts from January 1, 2024
Before heading into well-deserved Christmas rest, the organizers of the DOWATEK HardEnduroSeries Germany are in preparations for the 2024 season. There are also innovations for the upcoming season that are significant for both riders and fans. All essential information is compactly summarized in this announcement.
The schedule is set
On many well-known tracks, spread across the central and southern regions of Germany, the series kicks off its seventh season on April 13, 2024, starting with the race in Reetz.
As in the previous season, the ACE Bikes Prolog Award will take place on Saturday evening during the second race in Crimmitschau (April 27/28) to ease the race day on Sunday. The Hamma race returns on May 25, and the finale will be held on October 5 in Schwepnitz. It was crucial to ensure that none of the races would overlap with the FIM Hardenduro World Championship, allowing the fast juniors to participate.
Whether an eighth race will be added is not yet finalized; negotiations are still ongoing. If it happens, this race will complete the calendar in the fall.
Draft: 21.12.2023 Changes possible
Rider classifications are available
In the 2024 season, the same rating classes as in the previous season will be maintained. They will once again be categorized based on the age of the rider and the DG Design system. The Rider classifications for the PRO and amateur classes are already available at the following link: www.dg-design.org/enduro-fahrereinstufungen-saison-2024.
For the HESG PRO class, Riders in the Gold and Silver categorization will continue to be counted. Additionally, there will still be the Junior, Senior, Women's, as well as the HESG-E and HESG Kids classes. Women will also be scored in the championship at all races.
Registration opens on January 1, 2024
As in every year, the official season registration begins on January 1, 2024, at 12:00 PM on www.hardenduro-germany.de. At that time, registration can also be submitted for the WEBER #werkeholics Team Award.
ACE Bikes HESG Talent Pool applications are possible
Young pilots up to 18 years old already have the opportunity to apply for the ACE Bikes HESG Talent Pool. With this talent pool, the series aims to support four young Riders in various areas. The assistance includes help with sponsor acquisition, media training, and financial support. Registration for talents is free, and they receive a 50% subsidy on entries for events in the year 2024. An experienced HESG participant will provide advisory support to the promoted pilots at three races. In addition, young riders will have a special media presence through videos and press releases.

ACE Bikes acts as the title partner of the Talent Pool. However, riders from all over Germany can naturally apply. The sponsorship is open to everyone, regardless of the brand or team to which the respective junior belongs.
ACE Bikes becomes the title sponsor of the Prolog Award
The Prolog receives an upgrade in 2024. In the 2024 season, ACE Bikes becomes the partner of the first decision of the race day. Thus, the Prolog is now named the 'ACE Bikes Prolog Award'.
New series partners trust in the series concept
For the 2024 season, new companies place their trust in the series concept and become new partners. The series is particularly pleased with the involvement of Auner, Louis, Hindlebar, Finkmoto, and Allpowers. Allpowers provides the series with a power station that will supply climate-neutral electricity for the timekeeping.
Series organizer Denis Günther expresses his joy about the new partners: 'In the current challenging times, we are pleased that we have been able to gain new partners who are supporting the series. Together with the existing partners, the 2024 season will be a success. We look forward to the collaboration.'
