Welsh Gravity Enduro will be hosting the second of these at Dyfi on the 20-21st May 2017.

This race will also be the 2017 Welsh Champs which will be seeded off the results of the WGES series and last years National Series rankings

You do not need any membership to race the Dyfi Open but if you wish to get EWS Qualifier points then you must join EMBA prior to the race. See below:

“Top ranked EMBA members competing in the 2017 Series (80 Men, 30 Women, 15 Master Men 40+, 15 U21 Men and 15 U21 Women) will be added to the EWS Reserved List and will be eligible for priority registration for all the 2018 EWS Rounds. The winner in each official EWS category at every Qualifier Series will also be automatically added to the Reserved List.

There is no minimum number of races which must be completed in order to be included in the overall rankings.  But only a rider’s best 3 results will be counted in the final overall ranking.

Riders must be EMBA members (pro memberships) in order to be eligible to collect EWS Qualifier Series ranking points / be added to the EWS Reserved List.  Riders MUST have the membership before the race – points will not be assigned retroactively.  The 2017 memberships will be available at the end of January once we open entries for the 2017 season.”
