Enduro World Series launches new feeder series with stop in Aspen Snowmass
The Enduro World Series recently announced the launch of its new Continental Enduro Series for the upcoming season, and Aspen Snowmass will be one of the stops.
The Continental Series races will be a feeder system into the new Global EWS points structure for the growing mountain bike series, which has held stages in Snowmass in previous summers. Currently, the Continental Series features North American, European and Asia-Pacific circuits. South American and African circuits are in development.
Snowmass will be the first of three rounds in the North American Continental Enduro Series, with races scheduled for Aug. 4-5. The Snowmass stop is also the final of four stops for the Big Mountain Enduro Series, which also heads to Santa Fe, New Mexico (May 26), Crested Butte (June 23-24) and Keystone (July 7).
The other two stops in the North American Continental Enduro Series are Northstar, California (Aug. 25-26) and Burke, Vermont (Sept. 15-16).
The main Enduro World Series circuit does not include Snowmass this year, and only the Aug. 12 stage in Whistler, Canada, is in North America. The eight-stage EWS starts March 24-25 in Chile and concludes seven stages later on Sept. 29-30 in Italy.
