Ever dreamed of racing on the World Stage? Well here is a huge opportunity! Enduro World Series have created a ‘Reserve List’ giving competitors an opportunity to gain points from racing in official EWS Qualifier Events from around the world. It is not an official entry to an EWS Event, but it is a huge leap forward for dedicated enduro compeittors. With these events in huge demand and often over-subscribed, it gives competitors in the ‘Reserve List’ an advantage when entering an Enduro World Series event.
Top ranked EMBA members competing in the 2017 Series will be added to the EWS Reserved List and will be eligible for priority registration for all the 2018 EWS Rounds. (100 Men, 40 Women, 20 Master 40+, 20 U21).
The winner in each official EWS category at every Qualifier Series will also be automatically added to the Reserved List (providing winner is an EMBA member).
There is no minimum number of races which must be completed in order to be included in the overall rankings. But only a rider’s best 3 results will be counted in the final overall ranking.
Riders must be EMBA members (pro memberships) in order to be eligible to collect EWS Qualifier Series ranking points / be added to the EWS Reserved List. Riders MUST have [EMBA] membership before the race – points will not be assigned retroactively. The 2017 memberships will be available at the end of January once we open entries for the 2017 season.
