The new calendar will also give the EWS100 and EWS80 races the opportunity to get a full day of dedicated races at each site. Another new addition to the calendar will be a series of “Gold Qualifiers”. These events will be large-scale regional races which will provide more points than standard local races and should provide a more efficient way for runners to earn enough points to qualify for Pro races.

great quotes While 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, the extended offseason has given us the opportunity to reflect on all aspects of SAP and SAP-E and we are excited to introduce these changes. It’s the biggest format shake-up in the history of the series and we’re excited about the direction of the sport.
“We are obviously incredibly disappointed for our partners who we cannot visit in 2021, but they have our full support and we look forward to getting back to them as soon as possible.

“There is a lot to look forward to in 2021, the increase in the number of EWS and EWS-E races and the return of the Trophée des Nations. And on a personal level, I can’t wait to see the EWS and EWS-E end in the Tweed Valley, where the Enduro World Series team is based – this will provide the perfect backdrop to finish our biggest. season to date.
