The Enduro World Series Rider Advisory Board is an essential body designed to help communication between the race organisers and the riders taking part in EWS events. They can give important feedback on the stages, regulations and procedures thanks to their vast wealth of experience. Their job is to be a voice for the riders and so if you’re attending one of the races as a competitor this year and have a concern then the Rider Advisory Board will be there to help you.
The Enduro World Series is constantly developing and with new events such as the Trophy of Nations evolving all the time the Rider Advisory Board play a key part in making sure that the races work at their best for those competing in them - the racers.
There are four riders on the 2020 Rider Advisory Board and they are:
Isabeau Courdurier (FRA)
It’s fair to say that the reigning Enduro World Series elite women’s title holder had a pretty good 2019. The Frenchwoman won every round and went on to conquer the inaugural Trophy of Nations as part of Team France. The big question is can she do it all again in 2020?! She is the sole native French speaker on the board.
Remi Gauvin (CAN)
New to the Rider Advisory Board for this season is Canada’s Remi Gauvin. The Rocky MountainRace Face Enduro Team rider finished off a superbly consistent 2019 sixth in the elite men’s rankings. Remi is an extremely experienced pro and is one of those riders who is always in the mix, no matter what the stages or weather is doing.
Katy Winton (GBR)
Trek Factory Racing’s infectiously energetic Scot, Katy Winton, is one of the most well-respected riders in the pro paddock and hales from one of the UK’s main MTB hotspots, the Tweed Valley. Katy has been racing bikes from a very early age across several disciplines and understands better than most exactly what sort of infrastructure and considerations are required to allow racers to perform to their very best.
Greg Callaghan (IRL)
A three-time Enduro World Series round winner, Greg Callaghan is also a former Irish National Champion and comes from a family background steeped in two-wheeled heritage. Greg is back for his second year on the Rider Advisory Board and remains one of the most approachable pro’s on the circuit.
The Rider Advisory Board will be unhand all year at every Enduro World Series round to help with any concerns that you may have as a fellow racer.
