Successful kickoff for the 2024 registration period
Traditionally, on January 1st at 12 o'clock, registration for the DOWATEK HardEnduroSeries Germany began. Once again, over 100 riders have already signed up, marking a very promising start. Alongside many familiar participants of the HESG, there are also some interesting newcomers and returning competitors to the series. One of them is Florian Geisenhofer; the Rettenberg native was a fast junior rider several years ago, then transitioned to the German Enduro Cup. For the 2024 season, he is making a comeback to the series, aiming to challenge for the top spot in his final year as a junior.
The majority of participants are once again in the amateur category, closely followed by the juniors. In both classes, there will definitely be a new champion, as last year's champions Lukas Debus (amateurs) and Felix Bähker (juniors) are moving up to the pro class. Felix Bähker, who switched to Finkmoto on a KTM, has already registered. Marc Wulf, the overall winner of the 2023 season, will also soon be on the registration list. Milan Schmüser, the Tensfeld rider who won two races in 2023 but struggled with an injury suffered at the Erzberg, has also registered. He was able to return to the season for the finale. Those who want to see who has already registered can find the list at the following link: www.hardenduro-germany.de/wp-content/uploads/2024/01/Einschreibeliste.pdf .

Also, the HESG Kids classes are steadily filling up. In the 50cc class, there are already more riders registered than in the last season. The HESG Kids can register for only 15 euros here: www.hardenduro-germany.de/registration-hesg-kids-2024/ .
"It remains exciting to see how the registrations for the season start in this seventh year. After two days, we can definitely draw a positive interim conclusion, as the registration numbers are on par with those of previous years. So, anyone wanting to secure a specific starting number should hurry. Personally, I am pleased that the junior class is once again well-filled, and we can welcome many new juniors. That the HESG serves as a great start to a Hardenduro career has been proven by several, such as Felix Bähker, who competed in his first race with us in 2018 and is now already at the top of the series with international successes," says Denis Günther.
