Since its inception in 2013, the EWS has sought to put the athletes that race the series at the heart of everything it does. That's why each year the Series appoints a Rider Advisory Board, to make sure riders voices are heard and riders feel empowered to feedback into the decisions that shape the future of the sport.
We consult our Rider Advisory Board on any major topics and we look to our Advisors to feedback rider feelings and thoughts. Of course, we are always open to talk with everyone, but if you're a rider with some thoughts don't be shy to consult your representatives. It can be far more effective for you as a rider, and us an organisation to work with a focussed and small group of representatives instead of hundreds of varying opinions. We believe our Advisors speak for all riders, so make sure your voice is heard and get in touch with them if you have a thought, idea or concern and we'll be sure to listen and work towards a solution together.
Our Advisors span both English and French speaking and European and Australasian countries, equally representative of both the women and men's categories. Our rider's also represent four seperate Official EWS Teams.
Previous Rider Advisors include Jerome Clementz, Curtis Keene, Justin Leov and Tracy Moseley.
Greg started off racing the EWS as a privateer, but his talent was hard to ignore and he is now a professional rider signed to the Cube Action Team. With multipie EWS wins to his name, home and abroad, Greg knows the sport from the grassroots privateer to the very top step of the hardest fought podiums. Greg joins us this year for the first time as an Advisor and we look forward to learning from his broad experience.
Intense-Mavic Collective rider Isabeau Courdurier has been steadily climbing the ranks of the Enduro World Series for the last few years. The French native was on the podium at every round in 2018 and is currently ranked second in the world. Although a force to reckoned with on the course, Isabeau is also well experienced in sport and has brilliant knowledge and advice on a range of topics. Isa's also the only French speaking Advisor, so if English isn't your first language, don't worry, Isabeau is there for you.
Australian Josh rides for the Giant Factory Off-Road Team. Josh has been competing in the Enduro World Series from the very start, and is one of the most experienced racers on the circuit. He's also a self-confessed frother and always brings the stoke to a discussion.
