Official Qualifier Events
EWS qualifier

The 2018 EWS Qualifier Series calendar is listed below.
Organizers interested in having their races designated as a 2019 EWS Qualifier Series event can complete the Venue Application Form.

Riders must be EWS members in order to be eligible to collect EWS Qualifier Series ranking points / be added to the EWS Reserved List.  Riders MUST have the membership before the race – points will not be assigned retroactively.  The 2018 memberships will be available at the end of February .

Top ranked EWS members competing in the 2018 Series will be added to the EWS Reserved List (to be published December 2018) and will be eligible for priority registration for all the 2019 EWS Rounds.  Total number of riders qualifying in each category (based on their final year end ranking) will be confirmed on January 16 (once the 2018 EWS Rules are published).

The winner in each official EWS category at every Qualifier Series will also be automatically added to the Reserved List (providing the racer is an EWS member).

The EWS only has 6 official categories. As the various EWS Qualifier Series events do not all use these 6 official categories, EWS Qualifier Series ranking points are assigned as follows. Riders are sorted into one of the following categories based on their year of birth.  Riders with an EWS membership are  assigned ranking points for their finish position within that group.

Men U21 (1998-2001)
Men Master 40+ (1978+)
Women U21 (1998-2001)
Women Master 35+ (1983+)

POINTS:  Appendix 3.  EWS Rule Book


2018 Qualifier Series Rankings will be updated quarterly.  The final rankings will be published on December 3 after the last events.
