Chile Hosts Enduro Mountain Bike World Series
For the first time, Chile plays host to an event on the Enduro World Series (EWS), with Nevados de Chillan selected as host.
The weekend will involve six different stages, which mix chairflifts, uphill climbs and fast downhills. The course will move over an elevation of 1,000 metres.
The Chile event will be the first of seven EWS events, with reigning world champions Jerome Clementz and Tracey Moseley looking to open their campaign with a victory.
Clementz arrived early in Chile, winning last week’s opening round of the Montenbaik national series. The Chillán event will also be included on the national circuit.
“I can’t think of a better location or better team to kick start the second year of the Enduro World Series with. With some news rules and a tighter points structure, the next seven months are going to see some jaw dropping enduro racing and we can’t wait to see what unfolds,” said Chris Ball, managing director or the World Series.
The next three World Series events will be in Europe, with Scotland, France and Italy playing host before the tour goes to North America for events in Colorado and Whistler, with the final event in Italy in October.
Five event will remain on the Chilean circuit, which finishes in Concepción in December.
