World Enduro Super Series to launch in 2018
WESS Promotion GmbH, a newly set-up sport organisation and promotions company, have announced the creation of a new multi-discipline motorcycle championship for professionals and amateurs alike.

A premium offroad championship, the World Enduro Super Series will bring together many of the world‰Ûªs best and most visible events and will annually crown the ultimate enduro champion.

The WESS, the World Enduro Super Series is a global enduro championship that will combine many of the world‰Ûªs most well-established and well-supported enduro events. The series will include Hard Enduro, Classic Enduro, Cross-Country and Beach Racing style events, where all enduro athletes are free to compete on their preferred make and size of motorcycle. All events will retain their unique spirit and regulations, and will remain 100% independent, with a uniformed point system applying to all events.

Combining today‰Ûªs various competitive enduro formats, the World Enduro Super Series will harness the true potential of enduro sport, channel media and fan interest while also giving the wider motorcycle industry and event sponsors a larger communications platform.

To ensure a quality line-up of events the World Enduro Super Series will be an eight-round championship in 2018, with strategic international growth planned for 2019. The series will begin in May in Portugal with Extreme XL Lagares ‰ÛÒ an exciting race that typifies the popular, modern style of enduro competition included in the WESS.

Also featuring iconic and well-established Hard Enduro events such as the Erzbergrodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble and Red Bull Romaniacs, the series will also feature Classic Enduro races in countries where traditional, time-card events are commonplace. The series will include key Beach Races such as Red Bull Knock Out in The Netherlands together with Cross Country events.

WESS Managing Director, Philipp Stossier, said ‰ÛÏWe are hugely excited to announce the creation of the World Enduro Super Series. To us enduro means many things, but most importantly it represents inclusion of competitors, diversity of events and terrain and a considered mix of authenticity and modernity ‰ÛÒ all elements that sit at the very heart of WESS.

"Enduro racers have always needed to have a very broad skill base ‰ÛÒ the great champions of the past have long combined speed, endurance, technical ability, determination and the willingness to rise to a new challenge," Stossier continued, Irrespective of the event, these attributes will be needed by all competitors in all WESS events. We‰Ûªre not reinventing the wheel, we‰Ûªre bringing together well-established enduro competitions, run the way they‰Ûªve always been run, onto a larger communications platform to ensure enduro sport receives the focused, global exposure it deserves.‰Û
