Parr claims that he will keep the same format as previous years. That is “5 rounds nation wide, all with seeding on Saturday and 5 stages on Sunday. Camping will be available from Thursday evening, with open trails on Friday”.
The report also addresses some of the issues faced by riders back in 2015 : “Personal insurance will NOT be required but is highly recommended, helmets must be worn at all times and must be of the full face variety (detachable chin guards must be in place on stages)”.
According to Steve and Si’s announcement dates and venues “will be announced just after the EWS dates are released”.
Entries will go live on Saturday the 3rd of February at 09:00 with places limited to 300 riders on a first come, first served basis. More announcements regarding title sponsor and supporting sponsors will soon follow.
