The Enduro World series is still in its infancy. Created in October 2012, four groups from the Enduro Mountain Bike Association came together with one goal – to establish a World Class Enduro event.
Gathering collective experience and contacts, the World Series went from strength to strength. Linking the World’s most popular mountain bike events to create a rider focused organisation. The World Series brings a series of multi stage events in different venues all over the World.
The first round took place in Punta Ala, Italy on 18-19 May 2013. The highly anticipated event attracted over 500 riders from all over the World to take part, including some of the biggest names in mountain biking from a range of different disciplines. It has since attracted the likes of Steve Peat, Josh Bryceland, Dan Atherton and Tracey Moseley as well as many other big names in downhill seeing them take part in many of the rounds.
Managing Director, Chris Ball, Fred Glo, Franco Monchiero, Darren Kinnaird and their team are responsible for creating the event, taking five years to get the Enduro World Series off the ground. The first event hosted seven rounds in Italy, Colorado, Canada and France. Earlier in 2013 the EWS announced the formation of a new advisory board that includes; Rob Roskopp, Tracy Moseley, Jerome Clementz, Jeremiah Boobar, Curtis Keene and Mark Fitzsimmons with the aim of developing the sport and ensuring continued success for years to come.
