Hi there, I am looking for an entry to this race. Will be over from Oz for it. Very, very keen to race. If you have an entry and can't race, I would love to have it. Please pass it on to your friends too!

I have an entry and won't know till the last minute if I can go or not….if I can't I'll check back and see if you found anything.

Also, keep checking with the organizer of the event. We managed a late entry into an EWS last year just a few weeks before the race.

Good Luck

I'd also be interested in taking over someone's registration if the opportunity arises.

doesn't look like they're doing an additional release now (from the ews site): Registration for SRAM Canadian Enduro presented by Specialized is full. No new additional spots will be released.

Glad I got in on the first wave. It sold out in about 3 hours.

Work was asking if I could head to a trade show from Aug 5-10th, told em I needed to be back for the 10th for EWS. Would have rode it all blind no practice. Luckily a co-worker got tapped to take the trip.

That is the plan.

A stacked couple weeks ahead of me with a busy schedule.

race is aug 10. there's a bunch of amateur categories as well as the pro men [HTML_REMOVED] women. kinda cool in that (unlike wcdh) any schmuck can race alongside the best in the world. should be fully demoralizing.

umm unless you are over 40 I think you race against everybody. over 40 gets you into masters class. I think last year there were age groups but even a guy in his 30's would race against some pretty huge names.

I don't think there is a separate "pro" category

masters is 30+, there's the open category which is basically 'pro', and amateur 19-29

Last year they had Junior Men 16-18, Amateur Men 19-29, Masters 30+, Open.

Anyone can register in Open.

I have people who cover these types of things….so it's usually of little interest to me,but….from
EWS website.
