Wade Young wins Uncle Hard Enduro in South Borneo with spectacular ride in monsoonal conditions


The 2019 Uncle Hard Enduro held in South Borneo, Indonesia presented an incredibly tough challenge that ultimately saw just two riders complete the race. Sherco’s Wade Young was in blistering form to take the win in front of Graham Jarvis.


“It was a tough day out at the Uncle Hard Enduro,” Young said. “There was only two finishers as there was a big downpour \of rain just before the start which made things interesting.”


Young’s victory at the Uncle Hard Enduro follows his dominant performance at Wildwood Rock Extreme in Australia just a few weeks ago. Young will now head home to South Africa where he will finalise his preparations for the 2019 Roof of Africa.


Young is the defending Roof of Africa champion and is gunning for his fifth Roof of Africa win. Held in the Kingdom of Lesotho, the Roof as it is commonly called, is an event steeped in history dating back to 1967 with legendary winners such as Graham Jarvis, Alfie Cox, Chris Birch and of, course, Wade Young.


Labelled, the Mother of Hard Enduro, the 2019 Motul Roof of Africa begins on December 4, 2019.
