Great news to see the FIM are for 2021 developing a FIM Women’s Enduro World Championship to run as part of the FIM Enduro World Championship. Read the official press release below:
Further developing an already established FIM Women’s Enduro World Cup, the category will expand in both the number of rounds and prestige, becoming an official FIM Women’s Enduro World Championship.
Held across three rounds of the current FIM Enduro World Championship calendar, the overall champion will be awarded the official title of FIM Women’s Enduro World Champion.
First introduced into the Enduro World Championship back in 2010 as the Women’s Enduro World Cup, the series has since been the premier platform for women competing in top-level enduro competition. In total, 11 World Cup titles have been awarded with iconic sportswomen Ludivine Puy (FR), Laia Sanz (ESP), Maria Franke (GER), Sanna Kärkkäinen (SWE) and Jane Daniels (GB) all enjoying championship success.
With women from 17 nationalities and all continents having competed in the series during the last 10 years, it has cemented the importance of establishing the series as an official world championship.
This year’s championship will take place in Portugal, Sweden and France, where reigning Women’s Enduro Cup champion Daniels will look to claim her place in history as the inaugural FIM Women’s Enduro World Champion.
