2021 MET EWS Val Di Fassa Trentino: race course announced!

The Enduro World Series kicks off in Italy with two events in the Dolomites of Val di Fassa
The great opening of Val di Fassa’s bike season is just around the corner and today the race course has been announced for the first two rounds of the 2021 edition of the Enduro World Series – both events will start in Canazei, the first on the 23 June and the second on 25 and 26 June.
Following the fantastic debut of the venue in 2019, world class enduro is back to the Dolomites of Val di Fassa with MET EWS Val di Fassa. The course of the two races will be the same, with the only difference that on Friday 25 June the second round will host the Pro Stage, the time of which will be added to Saturday’s results. The testing ground for the Pro Stage could only be that of Tutti Frutti, a Special Stage almost 7 km long, particularly hard and physical, and yet very natural: as its name suggests, riders will get to taste plenty of fruity ‘flavours’ along the stage. Start line on a super panoramic ridge, followed by an exciting single track with roots and unexpected corners to negotiate, down to a spectacular urban finish in Canazei.
Each of the four Special Stages, in both races, is sponsored by a partner of the event that is also going to personalize the branding: Titans – Dainese, Ciasates – Northwave, Animal House – Trentino and Tutti Frutti – MET Helmets. All the companies supporting the event are Italian brands leaders in their sector, whether bike industry or tourism: this makes for a very strong signal in support of ‘Made in Italy’ especially in a time as difficult as the one we are living.
Overall stats for the two races speak for themselves: 32 km with 2,390 m of vertical difference in Round 1 and 41 km with 3,130 m in Round 2.

The transfers to three of the Special Stages will make use of ski uplifts, in particular: Ciampac (Stage 1), Canazei – Pecol (Stage 3) and Pradel (Stage 4) uplifts. Special Stage 2 – Ciasates – will instead feature a pedalling Transfer Stage along a road, partially paved, in the woods.
Start and finish area will remain in Canazei’s town centre, where A and B paddocks, together with the logistic services for the athletes, will also be set up.
Besides all major teams and plenty of world-class athletes, there will be no shortage of important guests. Moto GP champion Marco Melandri, Trentino region’s ambassador and great bike and e-bike enthusiast, will be the official track opener. On Special Stage 1, Titans – Dainese, he will be joined by another big name in Italian sports: Kristian Ghedina; together, drifting around corners, they will officially jump-start the race.
Another special guest attending the event will be handbike rider Daniela Preschern, who will accompany reigning champion Isabeau Courdurier along the Transfer to Special Stage 1.
During the week all eyes will be on EWS 100 and – only slightly less demanding – EWS 80 events: all riders without qualifying points in the EWS ranking will have a chance to test themselves on Friday 25 June. These are top-notch competitions with a slightly more relaxed format and a race course minimally revised to give everyone the opportunity to familiarize themselves with a world-class event and race course.
And to all fans who will be attending the events to experience the racing’s emotions first-hand, it is worth mentioning that all uplifts will work at half capacity: plan your movement with time!
The best way to enjoy the race is to watch it trackside, scattering in the woods. Please pay the utmost attention to the current rules: do no gather and wear your face mask! It is also important to keep out of the no-entry zones, such as paddocks and all areas reserved to riders, teams and staff.
Have fun!
