Seven nations have qualified to make up the WIHS international roster, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, and Switzerland. Representing their country on home soil, the U.S. rider list is stacked with the likes of Olympians Kent Farrington, Laura Kraut, and McLain Ward, as well as defending President’s Cup champion Beezie Madden.

WIHS welcomes riders from the West Coast, Texas, the Midwest, and all along the East Coast to compete head-to-head.
