Enduro World Series continues its slow roll-out of the 2019 EWS Calendar, unveiling two brand new venues for the series. Round three will be the first time the EWS has stopped in on Canazei, Italy. The small village high in the Dolomites has been home to a Superenduro event in years past, and the same organizers will play a large role in making sure the venue has a successful debut on the international stage.
After Canazei, Enduro World Series will stay on the continent, moving over Les Orres, in the Hautes-Alpes region of South Eastern France. Expect classic French style enduro, with big alpine descents, long stages, and the occasional chairlift to break up long climbing liaisons. The new locations join series regulars, Madeira, Portugal, Rotorua, N.Z. and Derby, Tasmania for next year’s competition.
With racing still a year away, the day-by-day release of calendar dates is feeling a bit less than dramatic. At this point, it feels as much like a list of places you really want to go ride as it does a race calendar. But, all the venues look like places you really want to go to ride, especially as an alternative to Canadian winter, so keeps it coming, EWS. Where’s next?
