The largest racing series in Europe, the IXS Downhill Cup series, the European Enduro Series and the Specialized Sram Enduro Series, are combined with a fresh website. With a completely redesigned website, which is more of a portal in terms of scope, the four series are now combined and although each of these three racing series, which operate independently of one another, can still be reached via its own address, the user is completely free to not to leave the area visited by him. Basically, the individual areas remain in their previous structure, but the design has been adapted to the possibilities and specifications of modern web design. The respective home page will continue to serve as a news page and thus provide both the participant and all other interested parties with everything that is important, such as a race calendar, the relevant schedules of the individual events or the regulations.
Another important part is the completely revised area of the individual user. As before, every participant needs an account on the website to register for a race. What is new, however, is that only one account is required for all racing series and other races managed via this portal. The database structures and thus the participant administration, the registration process for individual races and the processing of results have been completely redesigned, which means that all participants have to create a new account. For this purpose, it is explicitly requested to do this before registering for a race, since this process is then much faster and easier.
The fourth part of the portal is also completely new. All news and a cross-series administration of the participants are now available at racement.com. So if you don't just want to be informed about series-specific information, you should always keep an eye on this page.
