2016 Enduro World Series Wild Card Entries Announced

2016 Enduro World Series Wildcard Entries Announced

Over 150 riders from 27 different nations applied to be considered for one of the 30 2016 Enduro World Series Wild Card spots, which would guarantee them entry to their chosen races this summer. The Wild Card system is designed to recognise those riders who could demonstrate exceptional talent and deserve a chance to prove it but may not have achieved a reserved place due to injury, young age or geographical location.

All applications were carefully considered by EMBA and eventually whittled down to just 30 riders. Chris Ball, Managing Director of the Enduro World Series, said it wasn't an easy process.

“We were all really impressed with the number and the quality of the applications received. However, this made our job incredibly difficult - there were a lot of very deserving athletes. We had applications from World Champions right through to young riders making their mark on their local scene, and our selection reflects that. In an ideal world we would like to be able to offer a place to everyone who wants to race, but as this isn’t possible we believe we’ve picked the very best candidates that represent a wide spread of background and experience.”

Successful Wild Card candidates, along with successful lottery applicants, are now posted on the Enduro World Series website. Everyone who applied for the series will also be sent an email to let them know if they will be able to race in their chosen events.
