2015 Event Calendar

“Rotorua has an extensive trail network in a rich geothermal landscape of native bush and exotic forest, offering riders a mix of rooted and well-draining flowing trails - making the region the renowned mountain biking centre of New Zealand. Visiting riders can enjoy a post ride soak in the mineral pools and be spoilt by great local hospitality.” – Neil Gellatly, Enduro Event Director
ROUND 1 - GIANT Toa Rotorua Enduro, Crankworx Rotorua, New Zealand
ROUND 2 - Chain Reaction Cycles Emerald Enduro, County Wicklow, Ireland
“The trails here are natural and there’s no uplift, which should make for some incredible racing as riders have to be technically strong as well as very physically fit. But the reward for all that hard work will be getting to ride through Ireland’s famously beautiful scenery, not to mention sample some of the country’s world renowned hospitality." – Niall Davis, Event Organiser
ROUND 3 - Cannondale Alpine Bikes World Enduro, Tweed Valley, Scotland
This is another venue where there is no uplift, so riders will once more be tackling the hills of the iconic Tweed Valley under their own steam over two long days of racing.
ROUND 4 - Samoens Enduro World Series driven by Urge Bike Products, France
Nestled high in the mountains, this ancient village promises to offer racers a true alpine experience – steep, technical tracks accessed by chairlifts amongst the dramatic backdrop of Europe’s biggest mountains.
“Crested Butte is one of the birthplaces of mountain biking and the history behind this place is what makes it so appealing. The riding will speak for itself, but that mixed with the diversity and quality of trails, big descents, surreal-looking mountains, endless valleys and hundreds of miles of singletrack is what makes it one of the best places in North America to hold a true point-to-point Enduro race and EWS stop.” – Brandon Ontiveros, Race Organiser
ROUND 5 - Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro presented by Shimano, Crested Butte, USA
ROUND 6 - SRAM Candian Open Enduro, Crankworx Whistler, Canada
This will be the third time the series visits the world’s biggest mountain biking festival, and expectations will be running high after this year’s epic event which was dubbed ‘Crankzilla.’
ROUND 7 - Specialized Opel Enduro Festival Zona Zero, Zona Zero Ainsa Sobrabe, Spain
“The trails we have are very special, riders will find themselves riding through lots of different terrain from forests to open, rocky hillsides. The tracks also pass through lots of abandoned villages – some of which are up to 500 years old. We have been cleaning and rebuilding these trails since 2005 and we can’t wait for the best riders in the world to come and try them.” – Jorge Ruiz de Eguilaz Solanilla, Event Organiser
There’s a reason Finale is featuring for a third year – riders simply can’t get enough of the area’s huge network of world class trails. So it seems fitting the 2015 World Champions will be crowned against the backdrop of the beachside town on the Italian Riviera.
ROUND 8 - Superenduro powered by SRAM, Finale Ligure, Italy


The Enduro World Series continues on its quest to uncover the world’s best trails and unite the world’s best communities - as it increases to eight rounds and adds five new venues, three new countries and one new continent to its 2015 calendar.

It’s a real pleasure to announce our 2015 calendar and our third year of international enduro racing. Working once again with Tweedlove, Crankworx Whistler and Super Enduro Finale Ligure is a real pleasure but adding five new venues is also eyewateringly exciting. From the heartlands of mountain biking and backcountry big mountains of Crested Butte, USA, to our first visit to New Zealand, with Rotorua, to ancient, beautiful trails in Zona Zero, Spain, the high alps of Samoens, France and of course the rolling perfection of Ireland’s County Wicklow, we really will sample the world’s best trails with the world’s best riding communities. I can’t wait for 2015 to begin!”
