Do you have what it takes to race a UCI Enduro World Cup?

4 months ago

Mountain biking is a sport born from competition. Just as soon as cruiser bikes were first shod with knobbly tyres and slung into Californian fire road turns somebody started a clock. Enjoyed by millions all over the world in their leisure time as a way to get outdoors and to spend times with friends and family it remains, for a small few, about pushing themselves to their very limits. 

The WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series is the pinnacle of mountain bike racing and encompasses every format of the sport in its Gravity and Endurance categories.

The UCI Enduro and E-Enduro World Cups are one of the most complete challenges a mountain bike racer can face and feature opportunities to race all over the globe. Making the jump from amateur to professional in any sport is a daunting proposition but with the WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series there is a clear pathway to help athletes live their dreams, full-time via our Enduro and E-Enduro pathways. 

Racing at Elite level gives athletes the chance to put themselves on the big stage and attract the attention of UCI teams and other sponsors to enable them to make the transition to the pro ranks.  

Here are a couple of examples of the 25 rounds across 21 different countries where points can be won in the open racing categories to earn qualification to UCI World Cup level:
