FOLLOW IN YOUR FAVOURITE RIDERS’ TYRE TRACKS BY SIGNING UP TO AN OPEN RACING EVENT

1 month ago

Entries are now open for Enduro, E-Enduro and Marathon events in France, Switzerland and the USA this summer.

The WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series pits the best Endurance and Gravity athletes against some of the planet’s toughest tracks from March through to October, but it’s not just the crème de la crème who can get in on the action. 

At WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series events featuring Enduro, E-Enduro and Cross-country Marathon, amateurs can test themselves on the same parcours as the pros, allowing everyday riders to get between the race tape and experience a UCI World Cup track.

There are still plenty of opportunities for you and your friends to experience this epic day out in stunning locations too, with entries from Open Racing now available for the below UCI World Cups:

  • 27-30 June – Combloux, Haute-Savoie, France | Enduro and E-Enduro
  • 29 June – Megève, Haute-Savoie, France | Mountain Bike Marathon
  • 11 - 12 July – Aletsch Arena, Bellwald, Valais, Switzerland | Enduro and E-Enduro
  • 5 - 7 September – Loudenvielle-Peyragudes, France | Enduro and E-Enduro
  • 29 September – Mt Van Hoevenberg, Lake Placid, USA | Mountain Bike Marathon

For Enduro and E-Enduro riders, you’ll get to sample a selection of stages and UCI World Cup trails on the same day as the professionals, enabling you to compare your splits against your heroes and see just how far you are from a pro contract.

Mountain Bike Marathon riders meanwhile are faced with the same grueling course as the elite, providing a challenging experience that will push you to your physical limits. The Megève round forms part of the MB Race – an iconic event that combines a family-friendly festival with races that sample some of the most demanding and breathtaking courses that the Mont-Blanc area has to offer. 

The Lake Placid event meanwhile is a completely new venue for the WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series. As well as a chance to tackle the full UCI Mountain Bike Marathon (XCM) World Cup route, it also offers Open Racing participants the opportunity to see the UCI XCM World Cup overall winners crowned and USA’s lightning-fast riders like Christopher Blevins and Haley Batten (Specialized Factory Racing) compete on home soil in the penultimate UCI Cross-country Olympic and Short track UCI World Cups of the season.
