VITTORIA SPONSORING THE ITALIAN EWS STAGES
Vittoria is the Title Sponsor of the EWS Pietra Ligure and Stage Sponsor of the EWS Finale Ligure
We are proud to announce that Vittoria is the official Title Sponsor of EWS Pietra Ligure and Stage Sponsor of EWS Finale Ligure. The mission of Vittoria is always the same: to support all cyclists and cycling as a whole, epecially in this restart phase we are living. Sponsoring the Italian stages of the Enduro World Series is Vittoria contribution to the development of the enduro mountain biking in Italy.
The double weekend will see some of the sport’s biggest names head to the beautiful Italian Riviera for back to back racing in Pietra Ligure on September 19 - 20, followed by another two days of action in Finale Ligure over September 25 - 26.
The Vittoria EWS & EWS-E Pietra Ligure will be the first time the series has visited this beautiful region, just down the coast from Finale. The action kicks off on Friday, September 18th with practice for the Vittoria EWS-E, a pro only e-bike race that made its debut in Switzerland last weekend. Amateur e-bike racing will take place as well thanks to the Vittoria EWS-E100 and EWS-50 events, and their training will also take place on Friday 18th. All three of the Vittoria EWS-E races will then take place on Saturday, September 19th. The Vittoria EWS will take on a slightly different format, with only pro riders eligible to compete in this one day race. They will also train on Friday, September 18th, but we’ll have to wait until Sunday, September 20th to see them race on Pietra’s expansive trail network.
Racers in both disciplines then get a few days down time to explore Pietra’s beaches and many trails, before shifting their focus to Finale Ligure for the Bluegrass Finalenduro EWS and Rider Trophy. The Bluegrass Finalenduro EWS will take the form of a traditional individual start EWS race, whilst amateurs can compete as individuals or teams of three in the Rider Trophy. Practice for both races will get underway on Friday, September 25, whilst racing will fire into action on Saturday, September 26.

The schedule reflects the complicated event landscape of hosting events in 2020, but has been devised to ensure the safety of riders, staff and local residents. As such, we ask that no spectators attend any of our races this season and follow the online coverage instead.
