Enduro World Series Announces 2021 Calendar

Feb 26, 2020
by James Smurthwaite  

The EWS has announced an 8 round series for 2021 with 2 rounds in the USA, a return to Scotland and some new venues too. Here's how the EWS describes the upcoming season:

"The season will get underway in New Zealand in April, visiting Nelson for the first time in the series’ history. Situated on the Northern tip of the South Island, this small city is famous for clocking up the most sunshine hours in the country, but also its steep, natural and burly trails. Round two heads back to the inimitable Derby, Tasmania. This tiny town has embraced mountain biking and in just a few years created one of the most iconic riding destinations in all of Australia. It’ll be the third time the series has visited Derby and with good reason - their ever expanding trail network has twice been voted the Specialized Trail of the Year.

The top of stage three was axle-deep in fresh-cut green mulch.

"For round three it's back to one of the UK’s most famous venues, the Tweed Valley in Scotland. After a six year hiatus the series will return to the hallowed trails of Innerleithen and the surrounding hills, which for the last three decades have acted as the proving grounds for some of the biggest names in the sport. Val Di Fassa in Italy will play host to EWS round four. This stunning venue nestled high in the Italian Dolomites became an instant rider favourite when it first appeared on the calendar in 2019, featuring long, physical stages amongst some of Europe’s most dramatic terrain.

"It’s across the pond to the USA for round five, for the series’ second visit to Burke Mountain in Vermont. Serving up some classic East Coast riding, Burke’s trails will make their EWS debut later this season when they host round six. Famed for its raw and technical terrain, Burke will offer up a challenge to even the most experienced of racers. And for the first time in the series history, there will be a second USA stop, as round six heads to the West Coast and one of California’s most talked about mountain bike destinations, Northstar. The resort’s dry and rocky trails pushed riders to the limit when they were featured in the 2019 calendar.

Eddie Masters brought home bronze were all stoked to see this great finish for Eddie.

"Round seven needs little introduction, as the series heads north to Whistler for its annual pilgrimage to Crankworx. This firm fan and rider favourite has appeared on every EWS calendar since its inception in 2013 and it's not hard to guess why - Whistler is home to one of the most iconic trail networks in the world. For the final round of the EWS the series will crown its series champions in the sport’s spiritual home of France for the first time. Loudenvielle in the Vallee Du Louron in the French Pyrenees of the country offers up a slice of classic French enduro - steep and natural trails and of course, some of those infamous French switchbacks."

 I'm waiting for the 2022 DWS (downcountry world series)
With riders who are powered by a meat free diet

 I'm waiting for my owner to come back because the garbage tipped over when I was looking in it and one of the couch cushions exploded.

 @IamTheDogEzra: Maybe you can help me. My dog keeps looking in the garbage and then pukes for a couple days after. We dont put any food scraps in the trash but he still gets in there for some reason and I can only assume he's eating something that isn't food which is making him sick. Now when you get into the trash what exactly are you looking for? Can you not tell theres no food with your amazing sense of smell? Curiosity just gets the better of you? Please help!
Ps congrats on your ability to lick your own balls or region where your balls once were. I could only dream of such skills.
  • 48 0
 @Tmackstab: A question as old as time itself. Existential really. You have to understand that sometimes the trash is inside you, especially after you eat it. And if you explore the bin you're plumbing the depths of your subconscious. We are all trash and after watching last nights democratic debate I believe that humans are all trash, too. The puking is purging like an ayahuasca trip.

 @dylanrutz: i appreciate what you are saying, and I would even entertain the idea but then I would probably have to give up beer whiskey and wine as well. And let's be realistic, at 47 years old I am well past being mistaken as an athlete.

 @realfoodkev: Oh wow lol, you also help athletes with keto diet. You really dont know how bad keto is? look up in google, "why is keto bad"
Why dont you try and help athletes with healthy food.
  • 1 0
 @dylanrutz: I'm all for Keto if you're overweight but I'm not for it for athletes. Macros need to be in a certain balance for certain people and certain fitness goals, but if someone is obese and cant cut the weight I see it as an excellent method for fat loss.
  • 2 1
 @Tmackstab: But have u read that the keto diet makes it harder to exercise? If you are overweight they is one simple way to get in shape again, eat healthy and exercise.

 Oh really? Pretty sure it does a whole heap of other bad stuff for your body but hey ho. Don’t mind me I’m just about to tuck into a lovely steak. @dylanrutz:

 Do my research? Haha like you did? With your misinformation lol @dylanrutz:
  • 2 1
 @CrispyNuggs: Whats my misinformation?
  • 2 2
 @dylanrutz: Are you a creationist?
  • 2 1
 @dylanrutz: I've used plenty of different approaches with all of my athletes but the focus is always on high quality food, carbohydrate restriction has a place for some (not all)
I had the pleasure of writing a literature review on Keto diets for diabetes so I have some understanding of it's workings. Meat has the highest quality protein ans should feature in every developing athletes diets
  • 1 2
 @realfoodkev: Wait, protien is important but what gives an athlete energy? Does protien or carbs give give someone energy. If you are focusing on high quality foods, why are feeding athletes carcinogens?
Please watch 'The Game Changers" on Netflix or YouTube.

 I think I’ll listen to realfoodkev he knows what he’s talking about @dylanrutz:
  • 2 2
 @CrispyNuggs: Cool, good for you. Yet you probably havent even looked up why keto is bad for you and why you shouldnt eat meat.
  • 2 1
 I’m not interested in keto, where did I say I was? Meat isn’t bad for you that’s all I’ve got to say on the matter. @dylanrutz:

 @CrispyNuggs: You have any thing to prove that it isnt bad for you?
  • 2 1
 yeah loads thank you
  • 4 1
 @dylanrutz: shut up you bloody fool.
Everything in moderation.
People have been eating meat since the dawn of humanity.
If you don’t want to, good for you. Let others make the choice for themselves without being subjected to your inane ramblings.
  • 2 2
 @jaame: Mad english man lol. Again, do you have anything to prove that we ate meat since the dawn of humanity?

 @dylanrutz: I read your comment.
  • 2 0
 @jaame: Okay?
  • 1 1
 @dylanrutz: the evolution (or creation, depending on your bag) of the different human teeth maybe... Also depending on what constitutes the "dawn of Humanity"
  • 2 2
 @Dropthedebt: Thank you. One of the reasons why we arent suppsoed to eat meat is because our teeth are flat compared to tigers, lion, and carnivores teeth.
  • 3 1
 @dylanrutz: not all of them dude... Human teeth include incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. A combination that has evolved (or created) to enable humans to be Omnivorous.
  • 2 3
 @Dropthedebt: compare our teeth to lions teeth. come back to me then.
  • 4 1
 @dylanrutz: do you actually understand what Omnivorous means?
  • 2 3
 @Dropthedebt: I do. do you?
  • 2 2
 @dylanrutz: Really dude? You going with that? Okay... I'll play along for a while.
The different human teeth have developed (or created) to enable us to enjoy an Omnivorous diet. This means we can eat both plant based & meat based diet to obtain our protein, carbohydrates, fats & fibres; thus enabling us to enjoy a balanced diet when all groups are ingested in a moderated way.
Hoping that explains it.
  • 3 2
 @Dropthedebt:

Does that explain it Dylan, you tit?
  • 2 3
 @Dropthedebt @jaame Nah, thats wrong. Our teeth are flat like most herbivores. Notice how our canines barely poke out less than half a centimeter. Then do u see how our molars are mostly flat with tiny divots? Take a lions teeth for an example, there teeth are shaped like razors which helps them chomp down meat. And we dont have claws like omnivores (bears, raccoons, etc) And notice how gorillas are herbivores? they can f*ck up anything in a second. There teeth are also flat like ours. And you are probably gonna pick out something. Our teeth cant be totally flat like boxes because we cant even break down plant material. Digestive system is also another reason why we arent supposed to eat meat. Our bodies arent even supposed to break down meat. Humans intestinal tracts are much longer, like those of plant eaters this gives the body more time to break down fiber and absorb the nutrients from plant-based foods. Carnivores have shorter digestive tracks which makes it easier for meet to pass by in their stomach.
  • 2 1
 @dylanrutz: okay... That's the beauty of knowledge. It enables us to believe whatever we choose to believe. You enjoy your knowledge and I'll keep believing my (currently scientifically accepted) way of thinking.
Enjoy your evening. tup
  • 2 3
 @Dropthedebt: Yeah, now u say it's okay to believe in whatever we want to believe in. You just cant accept your wrong lol. Enjoy your unhealthy and false diet
  • 2 1
 @dylanrutz: Dude, listen if it makes you feel better... Your absolutely correct and I am so off the mark. I am totally wrong in my reasoning & actually ashamed that I could have ever contemplated my chain of thinking.
Once again, enjoy your evening. Rolleyes

 @Dropthedebt: lmao, your just to ignorant.
Enjoy your evening as well ✌
  • 2 1
 @dylanrutz:
I am perfectly able to admit I am wrong & in no way am I an ignorant person.
A wise man, wiser than you or I will ever be, once wrote "Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong."
  • 2 2
 @Dropthedebt: Nah, your are a perfect example of an ignorant person. And wow, thats amazing, you wrote and article, congrats!
  • 2 1
 @dylanrutz: how can someone be taken seriously when they apparently don’t even understand that you’re means you are, and your means your?
Humans cannot digest cellulose, which I would say is supporting evidence for someone who claims we should not eat plants. Now I’m not one such person, but I do believe humans have been eating animals since they had the ability to catch animals.
I’m fine with it if someone wants to eat a no-meat diet. I’m fine if people want to smoke, drink, eat butter, drink cow milk, whatever. Drink their own piss, eat stinky tofu or bats.
Just don’t go telling me what I can eat, should eat, was designed to eat etc. It's not cool. I will eat what I want, like, can afford. I like meat, I believe my species is perfectly capable of eating meat, and I will continue to do so as long as there is life in my body.
If anyone chooses not to eat it, or believe that we shouldn't eat it, that's awesome. I disagree but that's what makes life interesting isn't tit?

 Only Vegans and Crossfitters allowed.
  • 3 2
 @dylanrutz: dude your digestive physiology is grossly incorrect. Protein, carbohydrates and fats that are eaten from food are digested in the small intestine, (which is all animal based food) including the very important vitamin B12. Humans have an extremely acidic stomach with a pH of 1-2 not at all like herbivores. Humans also gave up nearly all of our hindgut fermentation where bacteria convert plant sugars to short chain fatty acids for energy. Gorillas have a high fat diet from their continuous grazing. Humans are faculative carnivores not obligate carnivores which allows us to be omnivores, this allows us to survive winter without plants but take advantage of themin summer.
Teeth don't matter as humans have opposable thumbs which allows us to use tools.
Or anatomy evolved around long distance running, we can out run everything, we have a specific cooling system to assist. We also have the most accurate long distance throw and shoulder anatomy to give us the advantage.
It's great your interested in evolution but please don't get your information from propaganda movies on Netflix, go to LibGen and download some biology text books.
Happy reading.

 @Hundin: Bourdain was born in 1979 and turned vegan in 2011 - he was built on animals
I don't know about the martial artists
This is the same BS I constantly hear, all there athletes grow and get to a point on sport where they are successful and start eating well on plants (with adequate supplements ????) and they forget what got them there. This is never communicated to the young athletes who put their careers at risk thinking they can live on beans ????
  • 2 2
 @realfoodkev: Lol. You should look up our digestive system vs a carnivores digestive system. And our teeth do matter cause that's how we have to break down our food. And the very important b12 can be found in plant based foods such as soy product. And btw I did not get all the research from a netflix movie, that movie inspired me to do research on why meat is bad and why we are supposed to eat plants."We can outrun everything." Can we out run a cheetah that runs 60 mph?If your intestered in evolution dont go on biased websites and dont get info that you know is bs just so you feel correct.
Happy Reading
  • 1 2
 @realfoodkev: Yeah,they switched to a plant based diet because theh realized how f*cked up an omnivore or carnivore diet is. And you should know they took supplements when they ate meat, they just need more of everything. And this is what I don't get. Vegans dont just eat beans or lettuce, it's sad how yall think that's what we eat.

 I’m 40 and there is no amount of persuasion that could convince me that eating meat is worse for me overall than not eating meat.

I wonder if in another 40 years the middle-aged folks then will be unable to change their views on the so called “climate emergency.”

Their teen children will come home from school and be like “Dad, we should switch to fossil fuels. The earth is cooling at a faster rate than at any time in history. Five of the coldest 20 years since records began have occurred in the last 20 years and the only possible explanation is humans using too much renewable energy.”

And the dads be like “No. global warming, fossil fuels, climate emergency. I’m not listening to you!”
  • 3 2
 @jaame: And you should know that livetsock also produces more green house gases then all the vehicles in the entire world. we kill around 70 BILLION animals a year, and think about how much waste that produces. Livestock has also polluted more than 700k miles of streams and rivers. And btw, global warming is a thing, Antarctica just hit 60+ degrees a few weeks ago. You guys just cant handle the truth, some people thinks its cars that's ruining the world, yet it's the animals.
  • 2 2
 @dylanrutz: it's not a case of I can't handle the truth. It's more a case of I don't believe half of the stuff I see in the news. Most of it is made up or later proves to be wrong. I am very skeptical of any "facts" in the news.
And the other perhaps more important point is that even if everything you wrote about meat is true, which I doubt it is, I don't care!
  • 2 2
 @dylanrutz: of all the ice melts in Antarctica woop di doo. People can go and live there.
  • 3 1
 @jaame: wow lol, ur not the brightest person lmao. Your saying u don't care if Antarctic melts? That's sad, you dont know how many species would go extinct if that happened
  • 3 1
 @dylanrutz: pick a diet, be a dick about it. If you want to change minds, be an example, not a troll. There is nothing you are saying that isn’t wide spread knowledge. It’s just that every story has multiple sides. Educated, thoughtful and considerate people will disagree. I’m sorry but there is no single right answer. I’m glad that you’ve found a WOE that works for you. As for the environment, well there are just a lot of people. Leaving a smaller foot print per person just results in more people. As for killing animals, the plow kills far more than the slaughter house.
Best wishes.
  • 3 1
 @dylanrutz: What's the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don't know and I don't care.

Do I care if the Antarctic melts? Absolutely not. It won't melt in my lifetime. After I'm dead, I couldn't give a flying f*ck what happens on this planet.

All the species will be extinct one day, whether Antarctica melts or not.

You're just being a tit for your own amusement aren't you? Well it's worked, because I am laughing a little bit, so thanks for that. Your comments are fluctuating in their inanity just to keep us all sucked in. It's working! Keep them coming...

Dylan, you can be ardent with your information, and that really is a great thing for a young mind. In this case though you are coming across as arrogant & belligerent, therefore your message is getting lost. It really is okay to have a different opinion to other people without being contemptuous towards them.
I understand you believe in your knowledge & want to share it, but this isn't the way to go about it. All you will do is alienate those who you seek to educate.

 Don't think that's going to happen given all the requirements to have cellphone reception, easy access, space for an event village, evac routes, etc. Apparently Chris Ball looked at the Gorge a while ago and didn't see the potential to a race of this scale there. Raddest place to ride though, for sure!

 town of Burke and kingdom trails are not the same as Burke Mountain up the road... if you rode Burke Mountain and thought it was not a worthy location I'm curious what your reasoning is? It's massive, lift serviced half way up, has a shuttle road all the way up, and the potential for lots of new trails to be created... and it's steep. If you've only every ridden the kingdom trials (Darling Hill) that's not what you should be basing your opinion on that's for sure
  • 1 0
 Wasn't Burke the area that was partly made off limits for riders due to a dispute with a private land owner? Is that going to affect the racing, at all?
  • 4 0
 That was Kingdom Trails. Burke Mountain is in the same town, but has its own private trails and bike park. Should be no issue there.

 Three North American rounds vs 2 European rounds? Not complaining. Surprised that VT is locked in for another year before the initial run even happened, but again, not complaining.

 @roma258:
Wha? Is that the same as Colorado being US not North America?

 @rudymedea: no, as in legal defined jurisdictional - externally facing with associated interests. your example is vertical inside one structures of government. I believe.

 @gonzoracing:

Nothing as complex as that

Scotland is part of the UK, kinda like a ‘state’, which is in the continent of Europe

Similarly Colorado is a state of the US, which is in North America

 @rudymedea: Scotland is a country. It is the UK that is the state. A state formed by a union of two countries.

 @km79: 3 countries and an annexed area.

 @km79: Scotland isn't a country. United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is the country. Scotland is s devolved part of the conglomerate of Great Britain (England /Wales/Scotland). NI is added on to Great Britain to make the UK which is the country.

 @Dropthedebt: You're right, I should have said formed by a union of two kingdoms (one of which was a country, the other two countries). Point still stands, Scotland is a country, the UK is the state or a nation-state if you will.

 @km79: I would go with "in a state" lol

 @roma258: For clarity: Scotland, the UK, Great Britain, Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland are all still in Europe. They'll be in Europe forever. Europe is a continent. I think you meant the EU...

 Someone may need to proof read that portion about the US rounds

 Proofreading has never been a strong point of any Pinkbike employee.

 Pretty crazy that only two events in Europe and nothing in South or Central America. I wonder if this is because this year has two events in South America (Columbia and Chile) and 4 events in Europe?
  • 3 0
 It seems the south american rounds alternate every other year with an NZ/Aus round.
  • 3 1
 Uk is still part of europe

 @FurryCrew: That makes sense. The Southern Hemisphere events are earlier in the season as it's starting to cool down, the high elevation stuff up north is at the end of summer.

I think they try to keep the events grouped too, as it allows privateers a little easier access.
