We're a few weeks away from one of world's toughest motorcycle enduro races, the Austrian Erzberg Rodeo. Held between June 11 and 14, and despite other international motorcycles events planned for those dates, the Erzberg Rodeo roster is full of stars.

Last year's Red Bull Hare Scramble winner (and the previous year), KTM factory rider Taddy Blazusiak will be back to defend his title. Twice winner and Dakar Champion Cyril Despres will be trying to get his crown back.

Other stars include Chris Birch, the New Zealand based extreme-enduro professional, and the multi-winner of the Roof-of-Africa, South African Darryl Curtis. The Polish Taddy Blazusiak will be riding a KTM 250 EXC, while Despres, Birch and curtis will race on a KTM 300 EXC.

Spanish Dakar winner, Marc Coma, will also be there, competing in the Iron Road Prologue on a KTM 690 motorcycle.

This is going to be one crazy race.
