Amateur entries for Maydena and Derby are now open! These two classic venues will play host to the first ever UCI Enduro World Cups - and you can be part of it! Each of these incredible venues will be offering amateur racing the day before the World Cup races - so you can hit the trails then watch the world’s fastest on the same stages the next day. Hit the links below to reserve your spot now!
The race season is just around the corner - and you can be part of it.
The 2023 race calendar kicks off with enduro, with not one, but two races in Tasmania, Australia. The first race of the year gets underway in Maydena, when this brand new venue will make quite the debut as it hosts the first ever UCI Enduro World Cup this March 25-26.
From here the series rolls straight into Derby the following weekend (March 31 - April 1). This iconic venue has featured on the Enduro World Series calendar in both 2017 and 2019 and became an instant classic, thanks to its incredible trail network and some of the rowdiest spectators in the sport’s history.
And just like years gone by, it’s not only the pros who can get between the tapes at enduro races - amateur racing is available at both Maydena and Derby. Taking place the day before the World Cup races, these races are open to everyone with absolutely no pre-qualification requirements. These open races offer everyone the chance to test themselves on some of the exact same stages as the pros - who they can watch hit them the very next day.
And what’s more, the very fastest riders will be rewarded with UCI Enduro World Cup Qualifying points - the first step on the path to lining up alongside the pros at the highest level of the sport. Both the Maydena and Derby races will also offer e-bike categories in their amateur races.
In order to enter either (or both!) race there’s some key information you need to know to make sure you secure your spot on the start line. Read the following carefully to ensure you know exactly how to get between the tapes in March.
In order to enter any of the amateur racing this year it’s mandatory to create an account on the UCI Mountain Bike World Series website. You can register an account from Wednesday, February 1st at 17:00 GMT onwards.
If you’ve raced an Enduro World Series (EWS) event in the past and have an existing EWS account, this has been transferred to the new UCI Mountain Bike World Series website and can be claimed at login. If you’ve not raced before, simply create a new account. EWS membership and UCI licences are not required to take part in these races - but only riders with a UCI licence would be eligible to collect EDR World Cup qualifying points.
As these races are likely to sell out fast, having your account set up in advance of entries going live means that when it’s time to enter you can just hit the button and secure your race space at the Enduro of Tasmania in Maydena and/or Derby.
More information about Maydena is available here and Derby here.
Good luck and see you on the start line!
