100% of the course, 100% of the racing
Available at all EWS events, the EWS100 is exactly what it says in the name. Race 100% of the EWS course on the EWS weekend, with slightly relaxed rules but all the challenges and all the racing.
There's no need for pre-qualification - entry is open to anyone who wants to take part in this ultimate test of rider and bike.
But if you want to be on the start line in 2021, first you will need to secure one of these coveted spots. Entries for EWS100 will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.
2021 entries will open in February. Get all the key dates here.
*With EWS courses pushing the limits of what's possible, if you want to test yourself on a race that takes in 80% of these monstrous courses, check out the EWS80 for the same action, less slightly more achievable course stats!
