The 2021 Enduro World Series team announcements are now coming in fast and furious with the latest being the now official Orbea FOX Enduro Team line-up for the new season.
Now entering their fourth season of top-flight enduro racing, Orbea FOX Enduro Team have added two new faces to their roster in the form of Laura Charles and Pinkbike Academy winner Evan Wall. Charles joins to fly the flag in the Pro Women’s field whilst Wall will represent the squad as part of their National program alongside Gabriel Torralba.

Spearheading the charge in the EWS once again are Damien Oton and Vid Persak providing Primoz Strancar’s squad with a hopefully potent combination of experience and youth. Oton clocked a 12th at Vittoria EWS Pietra Ligure last time out whilst Persak broke into the top ten again at Specialized EWS Zermatt last season. Both will be hoping that a wider spread of races in 2021, combined with the arrival of Charles, can help them to move further up the Teams Championship rankings in 2021.

“At the competitive level, we will fight to conquer all the podiums, without forgetting that we represent a sport that’s on the rise. Our performance can drive the growth of MTB,” Strancar said.
