The usual top contenders are expected, with the likes of Sam Hill, Jesse Melamed, Adrien Dailly, and Richie Rude battling it out for a podium spot. In the women’s race, Isabeau Courdurier, Andreane Lanthier Nadeau, Noga Korem as well as Morgane Charre and Melanie Pugin will be vying for top spot.
In what is set to be the biggest week of racing in EWS history, the pros will race on Wednesday and Saturday. Amateur racers will get between the tapes on Friday for the EWS100 and EWS80. Then the professional riders take on the first-ever Pro Stage on Friday evening. With extra points up for grabs, this new addition to racing is bound to unleash the drama right out the start gate.Enduro World Series
