2018 Enduro World Series

I have qualified for the 2018 EWS with 8 races scheduled in Europe, North America and South America. When I was told this news I was blown away but knew that at best, I could attend only one race for the experience of it. After pouring over the rules and regulations of this worldwide event I discovered that the Masters class(40+) only counts your best 5 of 8 results. I got really excited as I realized that I had commited to one race already and would need to find a way to enter another 4 to actually compete and not just be a participant for the experience! I was reluctant to look at crowd funding to help me achieve this dream but the amount of unsolicited donations from friends and family when they first heard the news was overwhelming and I'd like to make it easy for anyone else to donate. So, here we go, if you are willing to contribute anything towards this cause, no matter how small, it will help me achieve this most serendipitous opportunity of competing on the BIG stage of mountain biking. 

My first race will be in Manizales, Colombia the last weekend of March. I am good to go with all my airline tickets, insurance, housing and transportation booked!

 As entry fees are refundable more than 30 days from the race date, I have purchased entry for all the remaining races knowing that I will miss two of them(as well as the first one in Chile) and will be refunded those fees.

24–25 March 2018 Lo Barnechea, Chile
31 March–1 April 2018 Manizales, Colombia
12–13 May 2018 Olargues - France
30 June–1 July 2018 Petzen - Jamnica, Austria/Slovenia
21–22 July 2018 La Thuile, Italy
12 August 2018 Whistler, Canada
22–23 September 2018 Ainsa - Sobrarbe, Spain
29–30 September 2018 Finale Ligure, Italy

After a great season of racing in 2017 I have been  training harder than ever to keep the momentum going into 2018. Thank you in advance for all the encouragement and support. 

Cheers!
