Guido Tschugg helps Husqvarna E-Bicycles Racing bring the 2022 eMTB Enduro World Series to a positive close with a Masters class podium in Finale Ligure After five demanding and distinctively different rounds, Husqvarna E-Bicycles Racing’s participation in the 2022 eMTB Enduro World Series drew to a close today in Finale Ligure, Italy. Guido Tschugg earned another podium result in Masters, while Simon Carlsson ended his 2022 season in 17th overall. Long regarded as a mecca for mountain biking, the iconic Italian trails are well known for being the birthplace for enduro racing. However, despite their beautiful coastal location, the trails of Finale Ligure are not for the faint hearted. Littered with rocks, roots and slippery dust, they are tough to master. And with 12 stages, including three uphill power stages to master, round five was in many ways the toughest of the championship.
