  1. Racing under a hot Colorado sun at an elevation of 10,000 feet is no mean feat, but Graves and Ravanel made it look effortless as they dominated their respective fields. Neither had much time to take in the stunning views of the iconic Aspen Snowmass region, as they were too busy putting significant time into their competitors. In the women’s race Cecile showed her intentions right from the start - she finished day one with a 53 second lead over second placed Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) and 56 seconds ahead of Anita Gehrig (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race) in third. It was a similar story for Graves - finishing the day 21 seconds up on Nico Lau (Cube Action Team) and 31 seconds back was Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) in third. But Sunday saw a changing of the guard. Jared and Cecile’s lead remained unchallenged, but the fight was most intense for the remaining spots on the podium. Anita Gehrig (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race) got to enjoy her first taste of the podium as she finished the race in second, with Isabeau Courdurier having to settle for third. Nico Lau held on to his second spot, but a strong showing from Jerome Clementz (Cannondale) boosted him into third position. Speaking at the end of the day, Jared Graves said: “It was a really good weekend, I’m just happy to put a good weekend together as it hasn’t happened all year and it’s been really bugging me a lot, especially the last two races. “I like racing at altitude and I’m always comfortable and confident in Colorado, I like the stages and think they had a good mix and after I went well on stage one it gave me confidence and I rode like I knew I could. I always feel good about Whistler so I can’t wait - it’s going to be awesome.” Cecile added: “I tried to have some fun - it was difficult with the altitude and the physical stages, but in the end I just took pleasure from the riding. Now I’m looking to Whistler - it’s my goal for the year to win Whistler but I’ll just have to wait and see.” In the U21 Men’s competition it was Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) who came out on top. A strong showing from Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) wasn’t enough in the end and he finished the day in second, with round three winner Killian Callaghan sitting third. In the U21 Women it was a USA sweep with Samantha Soranio in first, Lia Westermann in second and Abby Hobbs in third. In the Master’s men Michael Broderick of the USA won, with Joe Lawwill and Randal Huntington in second and third respectively. In the team competition Rocky Mountain Urge bp came out on top, Ibis Cycles Race Enduro in second and Specialized in third. The series stays in North America for round six as it heads to Whistler for the SRAM Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized. In the men's competition Richie Rude (Yeti Fox Shox) still leads the series while Ravanel strengthens her overall points lead in the women's category. Claquin holds onto his U21 Men series lead and Raphaela Richter (Radon Magura Factory Racing) and after another strong weekend, Rocky Mountain Urge bp lead out a well fought team series leader board.

  2. Jared Graves (Specialized) and Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Racing Team) won the fifth round of the Enduro World Series the Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro presented by Shimano in convincing style. Click here to view the article
  3. Jared Graves on stage 2 - he won all three stages today and goes into day two with a 21 second lead. After a shaky start to the season Jared found his flow on the classic Colorado singletrack of Aspen Snowmass, finishing the first day of racing with a comfortable lead of 21 seconds over second placed Nico Lau (Cube Action Team). Martin Maes' (GT Factory Racing) first race since he broke his hand in June saw him finish in third, 31 seconds behind Graves. Cecile Ravanel flies through stage 1 - she won all three of today's stages and goes into tomorrow's race with a 53 second lead. In the women's race Cecile continued her incredible form to win every stage and finish the day over 53 seconds up on Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) in second. In third place Anita Gehrig (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race) sits 56 seconds back - expect a strong fight from her tomorrow as she tries hard to finally make it on to the podium after coming so close on numerous occasions this season. In the U21 Men's category it's once more Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) who's out on top. Fellow Frenchman Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain URGE bp) trails by 27 seconds, with USA rider Duncan Nason in third. Home grown talent Samantha Soriano and Lia Westermann sit in first and second respectively in the U21 Women's race. There's another strong showing from the States in the Master's category, with Michael Broderick and Joe Lawwill taking the top two spots and Australia's Randal Huntington sitting third. Tomorrow's remaining three stages really have the potential to mix things up, as today's long, sweeping singletrack is replaced by steeper and more technical trails. Full results from Day 1: here.

  5. Training lap crash by Richie Rude at Aspen - Snowmass in the USA which will take place on 30th and 31st July. He's still planning to race, despite a shoulder injury :-) https://youtu.be/mw4hGU-Pnj4
  6. The first North American race of the year will take place amongst some of the USA’s highest mountains in the iconic Aspen-Snowmass resort in Colorado. The 450 riders will face six stages over two days of racing, all at a lung busting altitude of 10,000 feet. The resort’s chairlifts mean riders don’t face too much in the way of climbing at just 1700 feet - but the elevation means even a modest climb can be brutal. But with 15,000 feet of descent down classic Colorado singletrack as a reward, it will definitely be worth it. In the men’s competition there is just one question - can anyone stop Richie Rude? The Yeti Fox Shox rider has won three of the four races so far this season and cemented his lead over the rest of the field when he won in La Thuile by over a minute and a half just a couple of weeks ago. He won’t have Sam Hill (Chain Reaction Cycles Paypal) chasing him down this time, but Damien Oton (Devinci Global Racing) and Florian Nicolai (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) who sit second and third respectively in the overall rankings will be trying hard to prevent the American taking another win. Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) will start the race as the hot favourite - she has dominated the women’s field this season and shows no sign of slowing down. She won’t be without competition though, as her main points rival Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) will be chasing hard as will Anneke Beerten (GT Factory Racing) who returns from illness. Fresh faces could also throw in an upset this weekend - both Casey Brown (Trek Factory Racing) and Andreane Lathier Nadeau (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) managed to podium at their first Enduro World Series races earlier this year and definitely have the potential to do the same here. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/451327/ In the Under 21 Men’s category Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) remains the man to beat. The young Frenchman stormed the last round in La Thuile - finishing the first day of racing with a time that would have put him third in the overall competition. Fellow Frenchman Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) won’t back down though and will be pushing him hard. And both will have to be wary of the 40 strong field - one of the biggest they’ve had to face. In the Master’s category Karim Amour still leads the points and will roll off the start line as the favourite here too. Brandon Ontiveros of Big Mountain Enduro said: “We at BME are excited to show the world what Colorado riding is all about, especially the long courses we put together for 2016. "For this year, riders can expect a few 3,000 - 4,000 descents, very physical stages and new, raw trail that will challenge the best of the best, all while showcasing some of the fastest trails on the 2016 EWS tour."

  9. After last year’s amazing event, everyone was looking forward to returning and it didn’t disappoint. The crowds were even bigger and miraculously the sun was also out once again. Click here to view the article
  10. Last year we saw local hero Greg Callaghan take the win, the swarming excitable crowds all clearly wanted a repeat. With Tracy Moseley also back for a recess from her retirement, it was always going to be an exciting race to see if these two riders, the crowd and the venue could repeat last years magic. We certainly weren’t disappointed. It was drama at every turn.
  11. If last year’s round of the Enduro World Series was a fairytale, then this year’s event was a dream come true for Greg Callaghan (Cube Action Team). Click here to view the article
  12. The Emerald Enduro presented by Biking.ie was almost a complete rerun of last year’s incredible race, with sunshine, huge crowds and Greg Callaghan and Tracy Moseley (Trek Factory Racing) walking away with the top honours. In a race that changed direction with each of the seven stages, Wicklow once more proved that a little hill can create big dramas. It was business as usual at the start of the day with Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) leading out Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) until everything changed on stage two. Both Rude and Maes suffered punctures - along with Josh Carlson (Giant Factory Off Road Team), Nico Vouilloz (Lapierre Gravity Republic), Anneke Beerten (GT Factory Racing) and Toni Ferreiro. The issue forced all of them out the points - except one man. In one of the most stunning comebacks the series has ever seen, Rude was able to pull it back from 34th place after stage two to finish the race in third place. And in another surprise, Sam Hill (Chain Reaction Cycles Paypal) finished the day in second. Speaking after the race, Callaghan said: “It feels amazing. The crowd were just pushing me on and to be honest I felt like the result almost didn’t matter because just having that level of support and having so many people willing me on was kind of a win on its own. So I just focused on riding as well as I could - and it worked!” In the women’s race it was like Tracy had never left - taking a clean sweep of the stages apart from the final one of the day, which she had to renege to Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN). Current series leader Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) was forced to settle for second place. Tracy said: “I was excited to come back and race here after last year because it’s such a fun race with such amazing crowds and the tracks are really fun to ride. To come back and have it sunny, to have even better crowds and then to win - it doesn’t really get much better.” In the Under 21 Women’s competition, Irish rider Leah Maunsell triumphed, whilst her fellow countryman Robin Seymour took the Master’s competition. And the luck of the Irish continued into the Men’s Under 21 field, as Killian Callaghan, cousin of Greg, took to the top step of the podium. In the team competition Rocky Mountain Urge bp were team of the day, and now lead the series heading into round four in La Thuile. Chris Ball, Managing Director of the Enduro World Series, said: “There’s just something special about this venue. Once again Niall and his team have worked so hard and it shows - what an incredible race. "The Emerald Enduro is a real gem in the Enduro World Series calendar. Two year’s in a row now we’ve had a magical weekend with amazing racing, astounding crowds and an incredible welcome from Niall and his team. Thanks to everyone for all of the support and congratulations to all the riders for an great race" Download the full results here: Results_Ireland 2016.pdf The series now takes a break before returning in July for round four in La Thuile, Italy.
  13. In stark contrast to the dusty trails of round two in Argentina, riders will be back in more familiar territory as they once more face the lush green hills of County Wicklow. Sticking to the traditional Irish enduro format, racers will tackle seven stages and around 50km of pedalling over a single day. Last year’s event became synonymous with the amazing Irish fans, who turned out in their thousands, as well as the fairytale ending to the day as local hero Greg Callaghan (Cube Action Team) lifted the trophy. And whilst Greg will be looking for more of the same, he’s got some tough competition along the way. With back to back wins in Chile and Argentina, reigning World Champion Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) is the man to beat. Trying to do just that will be his closest rival in the rankings, Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) along with third placed Jerome Clementz (Cannondale). And with just 100 points separating the top three men in the competition, the pressure will be relentless as the smallest of mistakes on this short course could see them lose their position. The men’s race is incredibly tight again this year and there are plenty of danger men that could push Richie Rude off the top step of the podium; Nico Vouilloz (Lapierre Gravity Republic), Damien Oton (Devinci Enduro Racing), Toni Ferreiro, Florian Nicolai (Rocky mountain URGE bp) and Francois Bailly-Maitre (BMC Factory Trailcrew) all pose a threat. In the women’s race Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) has dominated the field, winning the first two races of the year and more than 100 points ahead of second placed Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN). And third placed Anneke Beerten (GT Factory Racing) will be looking to make things right after a disappointing round in Argentina. However, all three women will be very aware that current World Champion and last year’s winner Tracy Moseley will be back on the start line and as competitive as ever. In the Under 21 Men’s category, leader Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain URGE bp) will be battling to maintain his lead over Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic). The pair are tied on points, but after his win in Argentina, Claquin leads the series. Whilst in the Under 21 Women’s category all eyes will be on Leah Maunsell, the Irish Enduro Champion who is just 16 years old. Lapierre Gravity Republic lead the team rankings, with Rocky Mountain URGE bp and GT Factory Racing in second and third place respectively. However, a good result from either Ibis Cycles Enduro Race or Devinci Enduro Racing could be enough to shake things up as they sit just outside the top three in the points. Chris Ball, Managing Director of the Enduro World Series, said: “The Emerald Enduro was a real favourite amongst the riders last year. Not only are the tracks incredible, but the Irish fans who turned out in their thousands made for an atmosphere like nothing the EWS has ever experienced before. The terrain in Wicklow couldn’t be more different to the first two rounds and I think it will be really interesting to see how the riders adapt to the different conditions.” Race organiser, Niall Davis of Emerald Enduro, added: “The trails proved themselves to be fast and fun last year so we've largely kept the same route. Competitors should expect rougher tracks with a few exciting tweaks and less pedalling in the stages. It's going to be an incredible weekend in Carrick.”

  16. Cecile won every stage bar Stage 6 for a dominating win this weekend. Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro) and Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) finished the day as they started - leaders of the race. After six long, dusty stages over two days of racing, the pair made it back to back wins after their success in Chile last weekend. In the men’s race Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) pushed Rude all the way, but three stage wins for Rude left him seven seconds ahead and forced Maes to settle for second place. Sam Blenkinsop stormed his way to third place after winning stages four and six. We may only be two races in, but it seems clear the battle lines have been drawn between Rude and Maes - Martin is chasing Richie down on every stage. Richie said: “It feels good to pull another win. I was just trying to stay on the bike and not make too many mistakes, there was a few, but not too many. I’m enjoying my riding and feeling confident.” Richie Rude maintains his first place ranking after two weekends of racing. However, the old guard are still very much in competition for the overall. Nico Lau (Cube Action Team) finished fifth and looked in control all weekend. Jerome Clementz (Cannodale), Damien Oton (Devinci Enduro Racing) and Francois Bailly Maitre (BMC Factory Trailcrew) all had solid results here and are still very much in contention for the overall. In the women’s race Cecile’s dominance showed no signs of abating, winning all but one of the stages and finishing the day with a 1:04m lead. It was Casey Brown (Trek Factory Racing) that prevented Cecile from a clean sweep of the stages, winning stage 6 and earning herself a second place in the overall in the process - an incredible result for her first Enduro World Series race. Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) was pushed back to third place by the newcomer. The women’s competition is now wide open - Casey was only scheduled to do a handful of EWS races this year - although that may well change after her result here. The liaison to Stage 3 headed up into the alpine. Cecile was one of the few riders who didn’t crash this weekend, she said: “It was some ride! I didn’t crash this weekend which was my goal, but it was hard to find the flow, I’d find it for a few seconds then my foot would be out, it was crazy. I’m happy, it was a good weekend and I’m feeling confident going into the rest of the season.” In the U21 riders Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge BP) took the win, with Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) in second and Gustavo Ortiz in third. In the Master's race Karim Amour won, followed by Joe Lawwill in second and Michael Broderick in third. Josh Lewis racing down the start of Stage 3 with plenty of vertical metres to be had. Aside from the monumental dust levels, this race will be remembered for the fresh talent that pushed their way to the front of the pack. Casey Brown was meant to be on the start line in Corral last weekend but was forced out by illness, but she more than made up for it this weekend and is bound to be on the minds of the other women as they look towards round three. Spanish rider Toni Ferreiro started day two in third place, having won stage three on Saturday, and still finished fourth despite a broken chain on stage four. There’s no doubt there’s going to be some new faces keeping things interesting at the sharp end of racing this season. Chris Ball, Director of the Enduro World Series, said: “What an unbelievable weekend of racing. The dust was insane and it made for such unpredictable racing. The last two weeks in South America have been incredible - not just the racing, but the warm welcome we received from the local people and the amazing trails they showed us. A big thank you to the guys at RideSRL-Montenbaik and for all their hard work on the events - it’s been an incredible adventure.” http://www.pinkbike.com/video/441363/ The full results are attached here: Bariloche EWS Results Final.pdf
  17. Day one of racing opened with an ominous looking fire. Fortunately, crews quickly got things under control and the race was able to continue. After a forest fire broke out in the hills above the venue in Corral on Friday night, race organisers had to consult with emergency services who decided on Saturday morning that the race could go ahead safely. So over 400 riders headed out to the trails in the area known locally as the ‘cold jungle.’ Riders were rewarded for climbing the long liaisons under a hot Chilean sun by steep, freshly cut trails that offered glimpses of the Pacific Ocean on the way down. Saturday saw Cecile Ravanel dominate the women’s field, winning the first two stages, with Anneke Beerten (GT Factory Racing) taking the third, which put her in second place at the end of the day. Meanwhile rising star Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) finished Saturday in third. Cecile Ravanel asserted her dominance winning 2 out of 3 stages today. In the men’s competition, Jerome Clementz started the day well by winning the first stage, but he couldn’t hold off Richie Rude who took stages two and three. The day ended with Rude on top, Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) in second and Nico Vouilloz (Lapierrre Gravity Republic) in third. By the end of Sunday the results didn’t change, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t plenty of action in the last three stages. Jared Graves (Specialized Racing) suffered a snapped chain on stage five, but was able to fix it in time to make his start time for stage six - only for the chain to break again early in his run, but he still managed to finish the race in eight place. And both Richie and Cecile had crashes on stage five, but neither lost enough time to lose their lead. Richie Rude carries on his performance from last season. In the Under 21 Men reigning World Champion Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) proved too strong for Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge BP) who finished second and Chilean rider Pedro Burns (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race) who came third. Karim Amour took a convincing win in the men’s Masters 40+ category. Lapierre Gravity Republic now lead the team category, with Rocky Mountain Urge BP in second and Devinci Enduro Racing in third. Speaking after the race, Cecile said: “For sure I came here for a win but, it’s more difficult when you come for that. It’s hard to ride under that pressure; I know I had to stay on my bike, not have any mechanical problems, and of course that’s on your mind, but I’m happy now. I hope I feel better now going into Argentina and the rest of the season. The gaps in the racing is really close now with Anneke and Isabeau and all the others, which is good for the sport.” Richie added: “I’m really happy to take the win - I wasn’t sure if I would so I’m pleased. I’m feeling good going in to Argentina now, it’s a great way to start the season.” Yoann Barelli having fun on the transition. EWS Round 1, Corral Chile. Photo: Duncan Philpott Eduardo de Solminihac of Montenbaik, said: “It was incredible for us to be able to bring the world’s best riders to Corral. It’s a very different experience for the riders to come to a place like Corral where you have to catch a boat just to find the trails. We wanted to show the riders what Chile is like away from the tourists and ski resorts - this is the true rural life in Chile. It’s been an amazing race and we’re proud we could make it happen.” Results are posted on on our website here. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/440481/

  21. Ty Hathaway, a tall, soft-spoken Californian who co-owns a bike shop in Los Angeles, has made a life of things on two wheels. He’s been photographed for BMX magazines enough that he’s forgotten exactly which ones — and which issues. He’s been featured in clothing and helmet ads on road bikes. His Instagram feed is a visual catalogue of seemingly constant bike trips with like-minded friends. And in 2014, Hathaway re-discovered mountain biking and took on the rugged Trans Provence stage race in France, where he finished as the top-placing American. And his mountain bike jones was re-lit. Click here to view the article
  22. Ty is no stranger to mountain bike competition. As a kid, he contested the NORBA National Championship Series as a trials rider. The enduro format is not really all that foreign to him, either. Once upon a time, instead of wending through the woods on a carbon-fiber mountain bike, Ty’s bikes weighed more than 200 pounds and had a throttle. Coming from Southern California, though, he was more of a wide-open desert guy than a woods racer. He was good, too. Hathaway’s throttle twisting career was meteoric, and he finished his first season with a single-digit number plate. Quicker than most people advance up a single racing class, he landed a spot on the Honda team for the legendary Baja 1000. Taking over riding duties at one of the team’s planned pit stops, he took off at the kind of scary-fast speed that The Thousand demands. But mechanical issues didn’t allow him to brake when he got to the first corner. He woke up in a hospital, and decided that chasing a paycheck as a motorcycle racer wasn’t worth it. He still rides, and remembers his motorcycle racing days fondly — he does a trip with his dad every year — but bicycles are his passion. Ty headed to New Zealand last year to experience Crankworx — he’d never seen a Dual Speed and Style or a Whip-Off Championship or a Slopestyle event before. And of course, he was there to compete in the opening round of the 2015 Enduro World Series. As natural as he is on a bike of any kind, Hathaway’s 70th place overall finish in his first Enduro World Series event sent him home with a long list of lessons — nuggets he’ll undoubtedly take with him wherever he races next. Next time out, it’s a safe bet that Ty will end up closer to the front of the results list than the back. Not that it matters all that much, though, because this is a guy without much to prove. For Ty, it is all about the fun, the experience, and about being a participant in another adventure. Video by: Mind Spark Cinema Photos by: Adrian Marcoux Words by: Joe Parkin
