The founding members of the Enduro World Series (EWS) are working together with one clear aim; to make Enduro racing as rider-focused as possible. Our Advisory Board is composed of riders representing men’s and women’s racing over Europe and North America and passionate and experienced industry representatives who have a history of supporting competition in their work.
The ability to use this team as a source for feedback on rules, plans, events and ideas will help us continue to shape the Enduro World Series into a truly sport focused community.
We are honoured to have the support of our advisors. Together, we are looking forward to an exciting year of enduro racing in 2016.
