After the successful 2019 edition and the forced stop in 2020, Canazei is confirmed as part of the Enduro World Series in 2021. The local resort will have the honour to officially open the race season with a double round, on June 23rd and 26th. A result of great sport and media value that highlights the extraordinary beauty of the Dolomites and above all the quality of the organization – entrusted to the FassaBike group supported by the local Tourist Board and by the collaboration of the mountain lift companies.
EWS is the most important circuit of the Enduro mountain bike discipline, where the best bikers and speed specialists compete in some of the most important “riding destinations” in the world, such as Whistler (Canada), Loudenvielle (France) and Tweed Valley (Great Britain). Canazei and the Dolomites, UNESCO Word Heritage, are certainly the perfect “venue” for this kind of “off-road” adventures: think to the waving webbings on uncovered tracks, the never-before-seen single trails specifically drawn for the races, which develop through the high altitude meadows and the conifer woods of the Fassa Bike Park, in a very uncommon exchange of tracks and sceneries. These elements represent an absolute novelty for many athletes. The competition will take place on a ring that develops between the areas of Belvedere and Col Rodella, where long and demanding timed descents are introduced by ascending transfers combined with stretches to cover with the mountain lifts. The new EWS season presents itself to the public with a new race format,for an adrenaline-rush edition.
The Italian helmet producer MET will have a leading role not only during the event, but also during the whole summer season, as official provider of the organizing staff “Fassa Bike” and as promoter of other important events.
Supporters. A special bike pass can be purchased by the passionate supporters (by the cash desks of the lifts in Canazei, Campitello and Alba) and the Village set down in the valley will offer a lot of fun. The EWS Bike Days offer, moreover, the possibility to ride on the same tracks of the race, still tape-marked, joining a guided tour with the FassaBike local crew and to test on the field knee pads and body armour by MET.
