It feels like it has been an eternity but it feels incredible to finally be able to say that R1 of the Enduro World Series and EWS-E at Specialized EWS Zermatt is now nearly upon us! The 2020 race season suffered a complete restructuring in the wake of the Covid-19 global pandemic and as a result the prospect of finally seeing riders competing between the tapes has never felt more tantalising.
To add even more anticipation to proceedings, we are headed back to one of the most stunning mountainscapes on earth:
We would respectfully remind our fans however that, as with the rest of the EWS races this season, R1 will take place on a closed course with no spectators allowed on the course itself or at the start or finish areas. We will be operating under a set of restrictions which we hope will keep riders, team staff and officials as safe as possible.
