Finale Ligure Enduro World Series - Guide

Ben Winder Ben Winder

Here we are, the final round of the Enduro World Series is kicking off this weekend in Finale Ligure, just 200 miles away from the very first round of the EWS which was held in Punta Ala.

As the season is now pretty much over it gives us a little chance to reflect on what has happened in the EWS this year. The EWS has had an absolutely fantastic first year, exciting racing, stunning locations, bringing new faces into the lime light, but most of all it has given Enduro racing a World stage.

Unfortunately the series has already been won in both the men’s and women’s categories, by Jerome Clementz and Tracy Moseley, which is a little bit of an anti-climax but I am sure, everyone still wants to take a round win and give us some exciting racing.

Let’s take a closer look at Finale itself, where is it?
