Only two weeks after the recent race in Winterpark, Colorado, the EWS-circus is now heading to Whistler. Whistler’s first EWS race last year became part of the chronicles, as one of the most exciting races so far – and there’s no reason to suspect anything less this year! But it is not just the race that is exciting: In our sixth round of the ENDURO World Series Tipping Game, you can win some great DT Swiss EX 1501 Spline One wheels!

The special stages in Whistler are fast, technical and long. Only the rider who offers an allround-package has a chance to secure the victory. Last year, the world witnessed an incredible duel between Jeromé Clementz and Jared Graves, with Graves winning with less than a five seconds lead after 47 minutes of racing. Will he be able to repeat his victory? Who will complete the podium? Will Martin Maes manage to use his current top-form for a first place? What’s with Damien Oton?
