French rider Isabeau Courdurier is about to start a season that will include no less than 11 stages on the Enduro World Series.
Last year, Isabeau Courdurier finished the season in third place overall in the Enduro World Series (Enduro MTB World Cup). An event dominated by the Tricolores who finished in the first three places in the women's discipline with the victory of Melanie Pugin ahead of Morgane Charre.
For her part, Isabeau Courdurier believes she has signed her best season on the Enduro World Series in 2021, she who nevertheless won the world title in 2019. "Success is not always measured by the final place. I realized last year one of my best performances on the whole season" she indicated in an Instagram post at the end of last year. A special year for the Frenchwoman who lost her father but "never wanted to give up. I know he is proud of me.
For this new season, which starts this weekend in Maydena, Australia, the Private Sport Shop ambassador has a tough schedule with no less than 11 stages spread out until next October. Since the creation of the Enduro World Series in 2013, this is simply the busiest season in history.
From Oceania to Europe, then on to North America and back to Europe for the finals, the EWS riders will see a lot of the country in 2022. Tasmania will host the first race of the season in Maydena on trails that most of the competitors will discover (this destination had never hosted an Enduro World Series event in its history).
Then, the competitors will move on to the Derby event before Nelson in New Zealand closes this first block of racing in Oceania. Europe will then be on the program in June for four events. Tweed Valley in Scotland, Petzen-Jamnica in Austria and Slovenia, Val Di Fassa in Italy and Valberg for the home event of the French electric mountain bike riders.
North America will then welcome the best riders in the world with three events in 15 days. The famous resort of Whistler will be on the program as well as Burke and Sugarloaf. Finally, Europe will be the scene of the finals with Crans-Montana in Switzerland, Loudenvielle in France for a new stage on our territory and Finale Ligure in Italy for the Trophy of the Nations (which allows to crown countries on races where the riders wear the colors of their nation and no longer only of their sponsors) We will obviously follow Isabeau's progress during this 2022 season, where the Frenchwoman hopes to return to the top step of the podium.
