Let us remind you that Young came to Serbia first time last year and he won the toughest edition of Xross Challenge race ever, he also held hard and extreme enduro clinic for local riders. 

I am very happy because I won my first time at Xross Challenge. It was a great race, the rain made it difficult, I had trouble on the second day, some parts of the track really reminded me of Romaniacs. Just before the race, I did a clinic with local riders and I can definitely see the improvement. The organization of the race was great, tracks are really good, very well marked, I hope I will come back next year said Wade Young after the triumph at Xross Challenge 2018.

Will he be able to defend Xross Challenge title this year? We’ll see from 14. to 16. June at Tara mountain.
