Bichard and Gregg will compete at the first round of the 2017 Enduro World Series in Rotorua, New Zealand on March 25-26. While Bichard is competing in the full EWS schedule, Gregg will race half the EWS schedule and the full North American Enduro Tour. Teammates Quentin Emeriau and Ed Kerly will race selected EWS dates.
With round one of the EWS on Bichard’s home soil, the 32-year-old Kiwi from Nelson is ready to make a statement at the start of the series despite an offseason injury.
From her homebase in Reno, NV, Gregg, the 2014 California Enduro Series Champion, is not only focusing on her select EWS races but also the premier enduro events in North America.
Rounding out the Fuji Enduro Team are pro racers Emeriau, from France, and Kerly out of New Zealand. Emeriau, 31, will race rounds 3, 6, 7 and 8 of the EWS. Kerly, 35, is set to take on EWS rounds 1, 3, 5, 7 and 8.
The Fuji Enduro Team will be battling the world’s best aboard their Fuji Auric machines. With 160mm of travel engineered around the ground-breaking M-Link suspension, 27.5? wheels and an A6-SL alloy frame, the Auric is the ideal enduro racing platform.
