The Enduro Mountain Biking Association

The Enduro Mountain Bike Association (EMBA) was created in 2012 to develop the discipline of enduro mountain biking around the world.


The association comprises of four hugely experienced mountain bikers; Fred Glo, Enrico Guala, Chris Ball and Darren Kinnaird. Together, the group unite the collective experiences garnered from founding the sport of Enduro in France and Italy, building Cranxworx Whistler into the largest mountain bike festival in the world and racing and working within World Cup downhill racing. By joining together seven existing large events across four countries and two sides of the Atlantic Ocean, the EMBA group created the flagship Enduro World Series, starting in 2013.


The ethos of the group is simple – to develop the sustainable growth of Enduro racing alongside our membership; including riders, teams, industry and organisers.
