The EWS has today announced it will be postponing the first two rounds of the 2020 series until November.
Although South America has not been too affected by the virus, Colombia has this morning announced it will be asking visitors from France, Spain, Italy and other affected countries to self-isolate when they arrive in the country. With no end in sight for the spread of the virus, the decision has been taken to postpone the events until the end of the year.
Round 3, due to take place at France's Montagnes du Caroux on May 23, is still scheduled to go ahead.

The Enduro World Series (EWS) has announced that the first two rounds of the 2020 season in Colombia and Chile have been postponed in an effort to help contain the global spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus).
Round one scheduled to take place in Manizales, Colombia at the end of the month has been moved to the weekend of 7-8 November whilst round two that was due to take place on April 4-5 in Farellones, Chile will now take place on 14-15 November 2020.
South America currently has a very low incidence of confirmed cases of Coronavirus, but with riders travelling to the events from across the globe the decision has been made to delay the races until later in the year in the interest of everyone’s safety.
