EWS Qualifiers:

Race 3 of the 2017-18 Giant 2W Gravity Enduro series on Saturday 10th February 2018 is an official 2018 Enduro World Series (EWS) Qualifier event for the following 2019 EWS season.

As with prize money this season, EWS qualification points will be awarded to riders racing the six stage non-shuttled event category.

There were 19 Qualifier Events around the world in 2016 and 40 Qualifier Events in 2017. Enduro Mountain Bike Association (EMBA) members competing in any one of the will be awarded qualifier ranking points if they are placed highly enough. Throughout the year each rider’s points will increase as they do more and more qualifier events. At the end of the year, each rider’s best 3 Qualifier results will be tallied and final year-end ranking will be created. The top 15 x U21, 80 x Open Men, 30 x Open Women, and 20 x Master riders on this year-end ranking will be added to the Reserve List for the following year’s EWS, giving them a few days to enter any EWS event they like the following year, so avoiding the general entry public lottery.
