Sep 28, 2019
by Aidan Oliver  



Finale Ligure in Italy closes the season once again for enduro, but this time it won't be as the last round of the EWS, but as a new competition - the Trophy of Nations. Riders will race for National Federations in a team competition format, with the top three ranked riders of each nation competing for the official UCI striped jersey. Take a look at all the goings-on from teams and riders on social media. Follow @pinkbike on Instagram for more.
