A provisional calendar has been released for the 2021 World Enduro Super Series (WESS).
The hard enduro championship, which has the full backing of the FIM, will be fought out over eight rounds. Included in the schedule are the iconic Red Bull Erzbergrodeo and Red Bull Romaniacs events.
“Following an incredibly busy three years, building and shaping WESS, we’re ready to take the next step as the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship,” said series manager Winfried Kerschhagg. “The FIM will provide independent technical and sporting regulations for all pro riders, which will allow all manufacturers and professional athletes to participate under neutral, independent governance, while also awarding an FIM World Championship title – the highest recognised accolade within motorcycle sport.
“With the full support of the FIM we look forward to further celebrating the world’s best hard enduro riders, while also supporting and recognising the efforts and ambitions of our amateur heroes. Together with the FIM we move into 2021 with confidence and enthusiasm and look forward to ongoing exciting racing.”
