The challenge is back on
After a long period of absence, the Defi Wind is back in a special edition format from October 29th until November 5th. It won’t be the Defi Wind everyone is used to but will be run as a “Defi Wind Superstars” where amateur racers can battle for the top positions from October 29th onwards to be able to go up against the superstars who are already seeded into the main event from 2nd to 5th of November.
