The 2019 Enduro World Series will crown its series champions in Zermatt this September - and keen to exploit their home advantage to the max, Swiss riders Maxime Chapuis and Anita and Carolin Gehrig have already been on location to see what lies in store...

It’s the first time the EWS has finished the season outside of its traditional home of Finale Ligure in Italy - which will instead host the all-new Trophy of Nations - and Zermatt intends to mark its EWS debut in style. Nestled in the shadow of the iconic Matterhorn mountain, Zermatt is home to some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe, so where better to crown the 2019 series champions?

The EWS race will form the centerpiece of the Traillove Zermatt festival - a five-day mountain biking festival that encompasses everything from a trail building summit to derby-style races, kids events and a two day, 290km road race from Zurich to Zermatt featuring none other than Fabian Cancellara. More information on the Traillove Festival can be found here.

 Curious about the politics and/or the funding in videos like this. From the video it's clear who Maxime's frame sponsor is. Specialized gets their logo on his jersey and the bike is clearly shown more than once. However, if you didn’t know anything about bikes, you'd be forgiven for thinking Leatt was the Anita and Caro's frame sponsor. The bikes are never shown clearly, and I don’t see Norco's logo anywhere on their jerseys. Yet at the end, all the logos for the video sponsors appear to be tourism related, so it doesn't seem like it's just a matter of Specialized outspending Norco. What goes on behind the scenes to create that discrepancy?

 my first reaction is you're clearly overthinking this. then as the edible kicked in I'm convinced a huge legal battle, a back alley secret meeting, some other illuminati stuff, and that you are a shell entity of Norco marketing dept that was paid to post this comment and then a Chinese upvote farm was paid to give you 4 more likes to propel this to the top of the PB comments which is more valuable real estate to any big bike brand.
