The Royal Brunei Enduro 2017 Opening Night Dinner took place last night at the Royal Brunei Recreational Club, kicking off the third round of the Asian Enduro Series this year. “Enduro” is an evolving form of mountain biking sport that is a mixture of downhill and cross-country biking, and this event marks the first time that Brunei has hosted this famous series of mountain bike racing, organized by Kingdom Rides + Adventures with support from the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, and with Royal Brunei Airlines as its title sponsor.

The Opening Night Dinner kicked off with a short opening speech by Jason Pickett, Director of Kingdom Rides + Adventures, and a presentation of a certificate from the guest of honour, Yang Mulia Awang Wardi bin Haji Mohammad Ali, the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism.
