EWC explainer: The role of reserve riders

Reserve riders in the FIM Endurance World Championship aren’t just on standby in the event of getting a late call to replace a colleague forced onto the sidelines. As Robin Mulhauser and James Westmoreland have revealed there’s plenty to keep them busy before and during an EWC race.Swiss rider Mulhauser, 32, is the back-up for Yamalube YART Yamaha EWC Official Team trio Niccolo Canepà, Marvin Fritz and Karel Haneka. He explained his job within the Austian squad.“I am here in case somebody gets hurt in the team, but I also prepare many things for my team-mates for the race. For example, when they have the qualifying bike for the qualifying, me I prepare the race bike. I prepare the brakes, I prepare sometimes the tyres, I prepare some parts and I check if the race bike is okay. So I also have a quite important role and I am also here to ride a little. “Most of the time [in the fourth ‘green rider’ sessions] I’m actually scrubbing tyres, brake pads, brake discs or testing some settings. But also to have a small reward if the session is 20 minutes sometimes I have 10 minutes to also ride a little bit. Basically if something happens I have to be ready and know the bike.”“It’s going to be my third year with the team and all works really fine. We’re a big family, even with me as a fourth rider.“Of course, I would like to race although I don’t want one of my team-mates to have a problem. At first it was hard to understand how it works because you are not really the priority of the team. But it’s a big honour to be part of factory team, I have always been a Yamaha rider and I was proud of our achievement last year in winning the title.“The race is the boring moment because you feel useless a bit and you can’t help that much. If something happens I try to help but if not I just go to watch, it’s the moment when I am done.”

EWC Take Five with Sylvain Guintoli

Sylvain Guintoli is no stranger to the FIM Endurance World Championship and being successful as a former champion and race winner.

No reason I can’t be fast on EWC return, says Isle of Man TT legend Michael Dunlop

Road racing hero Michael Dunlop is convinced he can fight at the front when he returns to the FIM Endurance World Championship this season.Dunlop, from Northern Ireland, has 25 Isle of Man TT victories to his name – only his famous uncle, the late Joey Dunlop, has more wins with 26. But having made only one EWC start to date, he’ll be a virtual novice when he contests the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans in France from 18-21 April.Forming part of the Honda-powered TRT27 AZ Moto line-up in the Superstock-based FIM Endurance World Cup alongside team-mates Ben Luxton, Tom Oliver and Tom Ward, Dunlop has no plans to make up the numbers, however.

Le Mans EWC Pre-Test ends with Viltaïs and Tecmas teams on top

Honda Viltaïs Racing has set the benchmark for its FIM Endurance World Championship rivals to beat after it topped the Pre-Test for the 24 Heures Motos, the opening round of the 2024 EWC season from 18-21 April.Although the results of the two days of running on the 4.185-kilometre Circuit Bugatti aren’t considered to be an entirely accurate form guide for the EWC season opener, the performance of the French team (pictured below) and the new-for-2024 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade was impressive, nevertheless. The top independent outfit from 2023 clocked a 1m35.679s best time over the two days with defending EWC champion Yamalube YART Yamaha EWC Official Team second fastest on a 1m36.157s. BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team was third with a time of 1m36.371s.Tecmas MRP BMW Racing Team (lead image) was quickest among the Dunlop-equipped Superstock competitors with the 24 Heures Motos class winner of last year posting a time-topping 1m37.324s.
