Bluegrass EWS Finale Ligure

26 September 2020


The Bluegrass EWS Finale Ligure and Rider Trophy races are set to continue the lineage of what has become one of the most famous annual mountain biking events in the world. The trails that surround the beautiful town of Finale Ligure are amongst the most beautiful anywhere in the world and to race on them is to compete on one of the sport’s biggest and best stages. This will be the eighth year in a row that Finale Ligure will host a round of the EWS and we can’t wait to get there and to get the racing underway!

The Bluegrass EWS Finale Ligure has prequalification requirements – entry will only be available for riders on official EWS teams or with the necessary minimum total of EWS Global Ranking points.  Riders without ranking can sign up for the  Rider Trophy (Team and Solo categories) which do not have any prequalification requirements.

Announcement regarding 2020 Trophy of Nations
The full Trophy of Nations programme will be back in 2021, when the biggest team competition in mountain biking will return to Finale’s iconic trails.
