Age Categories:

There is currently a move within BEMBA to standardise age categories around the EWS system. This means we’ll have some changes for the Southern Enduro Champs 2019. We had 13 categories this year, dropping Elite for 2019 we’ll still have 12, just slightly different age ranges.

In the men’s EWS have U21/Senior/M40 with M40 being equivalent to “Veteran”

We are expecting to run the following Male categories (we are scrapping “Elite” )

U15/U18/U21/Senior/Master 30+/Veteran 40+/Grand Vet 50+

In the women’s the EWS run 35+ so we’ll swap our current 40+ vet category for this Master35

We are expecting to run the following female categories

U16/U21/Senior and Master35+

All ages, as per EWS, are “age on 31st December 2019”

These are not currently 100% confirmed, and we will adapt/change to match any nationally agreed systems.

With an additional Hardtail category, 7 mens and 4 womens we’ll have 12 podiums/event

For reference the six 2019 EWS categories will be :

MEN | Open

MEN | Under 21 (1999-2002)

MEN | Master 40+ (1979+)

WOMEN | Open

WOMEN | Under 21 (1999-2002)

WOMEN | Master 35+ (1984+)
