  1. Want to see what Team SA got up to at the EWS Trophy of Nations? Hit the Youtube link above... Myself (Martin Zietsman), Matt Lombardi and Jason Boulle had the privilege of representing South Africa at the first ever Enduro World Series Trophy of Nations, held in Finale Ligure, Italy on the 29th of September. We put together a video showcasing all the behind-the-scenes action leading up to the race, from arriving there, to our play day exploring the local trails, the goosebumps moments during the Nations Teams Parade, the fun we had practicing the stages and the action on race day. The Trophy of Nations pitted teams comprising the top 3 ranked riders from each nation against each other in a 1-day race to crown the overall World Champions. All 3 riders on each team had to drop into each stage within a 1 minute window and the times of all 3 riders are then combined to provide the final result. The winning team is the team with the shortest total combined time over the 5 stages...simple as that. We hope you enjoy the show....
  2. The 2016 Enduro World Series drew to a close in its traditional home of Finale Ligure - and the Bluegrass Finale Enduro powered by SRAM will go down in the history books for a myriad of reasons. Click here to view the article
  3. Cecile had no overall pressure having already sealed the series win but still raced 100% for the win. Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro) won her first Enduro World Champion title, Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) became the first man to be crowned World Champion back to back and two legends of the sport Nico Vouilloz (Lapierre Gravity Republic) and Anne Caroline Chausson (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team) announced their retirement from the sport. And if that wasn’t enough, Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) took his first ever race win. Martin Maes keeping things low on stage 3. Starting high in the Ligurian mountains, the 400 riders competing spent two days and seven stages riding their way through sun drenched trails down to the inviting waters of the Mediterranean far below. In the men’s race Martin Maes stated his intention clearly on day one - winning all three of Saturday’s stages. He eased off the gas on Sunday to secure his position and the tactic paid off - taking his first win by a margin of 17 seconds over second placed Richie Rude. Consistency all weekend topped by a stage win saw Nico Lau (Cube Action Team) take third place. Speaking about his race win, Martin said: “I’m so stoked to win. I’ve been waiting for so long for this and I’m just so happy for my team GT, for my sponsors and for all the people who have been supporting me over the years.” And Richie added: “To lead the series from the first race and then to come second today and get the overall again feels amazing. I was playing it safe today but I was having a lot of fun too. This was my chance to get the double and I got it - now I’m just looking forward to a couple of weeks off.” Miranda Miller out of the gate on stage 5, she held down third place most of this weekend but it slipped after a bad last two stages. In the women’s category the race results perfectly reflected the overall series rankings, with Cecile coming first, Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) in second and Anita Gehrig (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team) in third. The overall series podium was the same, and Cecile will start the 2017 season with the number one plate on her bike. Cecile said: “I had a little crash on stage one and that woke me up - I knew I had the title already so I was just riding for pleasure today. I’ve been working towards this moment all year and so have my team, so it’s great to be able to do this for them.” Damian Oton finds his way through the undulating grey earth. In the Master’s category it was Karim Amour who won the race, but it was Michael Broderick of the USA who finished the day as the Master World Champion. His dominance all year meant that even racing with broken ribs sustained in Valberg couldn't stop him from claiming the series. Raphaela Richter (Radon Magura Factory Racing) stormed to victory in both the race and the series in the U21 women’s category. Her U21 male counterpart Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) followed suit winning the race and becoming the World Champion in the process. In the team competition Rocky Mountain Urge bp continued their strong season to leave Finale the Team World Champions. Chris Ball, Managing Director of the Enduro World Series said: “Our 30th event, our fourth round of champions and all in the place where it all began, the stunning Finale Ligure. The local team did an outstanding job of trail building and preparing for this year, as did the riders for holding it together on seven insane stages after a long season of racing around the globe. A massive congratulations to our 2016 world champions and a huge thanks to all of our riders, teams, fans, organisers and supporters who are the reason the series can happen.” The series winners.
