January 14th, 2014
Enduro World Series Launches 2014 Season with Centralised Registration

8:00am GMT, January 13, 2014, Edinburgh, UK – Enduro World Series (EWS) organisers had scant few moments to enjoy the industry accolades that acknowledged its debut season as a “game-changer” before rolling up their sleeves to debut a new centralised registration process to kick-off of the 2014 Series.

It’s remarkable that the EWS only needs a few tweaks heading into year two. A testament to the vision of Fred Glo, Enrico Guala, Chris Ball and the EWS Advisory Board.

Team applications are now open here for 2014. Applications will close midnight GMT January 20.  The Official Teams, to be capped at 30, will be announced January 24.

Entry into the 2014 Enduro World Series will then open February 10-16 for reserved riders.  Reserved entries for each event will be comprised of the top 100 Men and 25 Women in the 2013 EWS ranking, four Team Riders from each official team, the top 2 Men and Women from selected international series’ and a maximum of 25 other riders and media at the local organiser’s discretion. A full list of reserved riders will be published on enduroworldseries.com.

Individual public registration for each of the seven 2014 EWS events opens February 19 at enduroworldseries.com once official teams and reserved spots are finalised.

A ‘Notice of Race’ for each venue outlining the key details about each race format will be available at enduroworldseries.com prior to February 19.

EWS Managing Director, Chris Ball says, “In response to rider and team feedback from our first year, our biggest priority has been to improve communication. In addition to making a Notice of Race available for each event, in one place, at the Series outset, we’ve streamlined the registration process, centralising everything at enduroworldseries.com.”

The centralised system, developed by rider-built CCN Bikes out of Vancouver, Canada, will also enable the Enduro World Series to track riders through the year, create more in-depth results from each event and automate rankings as soon as results are in.

Adds Ball, “After an exciting debut last year, with the degree of inquiries we’re fielding already and with seven incredible venues lined up for this year, we anticipate the demand to be very high, so put the 19th of February in your diary.”
