Margaret River rider to take on the world's best

Margaret River local Roly Kyme is once again set to take on the world's best in mountain biking as he rides the full calendar of events in the Enduro World Series (EWS) in 2020.

The series kicks off in South America in March where back to back events take place over two weekends in Manizales, Columbia and Lo Barnechea, Chile.

South Americans are passionate about mountain biking and a crowd of over 20,000 are expected the watch the first stage of the race which runs through the streets of Manizlaes in an urban downhill style race before heading into the dense volcanic jungle for the remainder of the five stage event.

The race venue in Chile is set high up in the Andes in the dusty moonscape of Lo Barnechea, a short disctance from Santiago.

While Margaret River has been an ideal training ground, Kyme is keen to get out and ride some of the world's most iconic destinations.

Two vastly different riding conditions are expected to start the season off.

Later in the year, Kyme will travel to France, Italy, Slovenia and then on to North America and Canada before heading back to Europe to finish off the season in Switzerland.

2019 was a very successful year for the 19 year old, who celebrated taking out the state Gravity Enduro series for Elite men, the MTBA Gravity Enduro National Cup for Elite men, the Shimano Gravity Endruo series for U21 and the EWS Asia Pacific title for U21 men.

The year also saw him finish up 11th in the EWS despite not racing the full series.

While Margaret River has been an ideal training ground, Kyme is keen to get out and ride some of the world's most iconic MTB destinations in what will be an incredibly challenging and exciting year ahead.
