  1. In this episode of Destination Trail, we follow Curtis Keene and Jared Graves to the epic trails of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Aboard the all-new Enduro, the pair check some trails off of their bucket lists, dive headfirst into hitchhiking, and go wild in one of mountain biking's most drool-worthy locales.

  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. 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.

  6. An historic field of 600 racers from 26 nations will take to the trails of the Ligurian Coast for two days of racing to crown the first Enduro World Series Champions. The talent pool is deep with pro riders and world champions from all disciplines, with a starting list boasting the likes of Jerome Clementz, Tracy Moseley, Jared Graves, Fabien Barel, Cedric Gracia, Anne Caroline Chausson, Martin Maes, Dan Atherton, Tanja Zakelj, Brendan Fairclough, Steve Peat, Josh Bryceland, and Justin Leov, in addition to top XC racers Marco Aurelio Fontana and Nino Schurter making their Enduro World Series debut. The winner of the 2013 Superenduro circuit, currently a battle between Manuel Ducci and Davide Sottocornola, will also be decided this weekend. The 6 stage course, which was announced Wednesday October 16, will feature 2300m in climbing and descending over approximately 60km, incorporating every type of terrain in the region, from fast flowing woodland trails to technical rocky coastal paths. The two day Superenduro powered by SRAM event caps off an epic season for global enduro mountain biking that began just 5 months ago in Punta Ala, Italy, and travelled to Val d’Allos and Crankworx Les 2 Alpes in France, Colorado’s Winter Park, Crankworx Whistler, and Val d’Isere. As Superenduro co-founder and host, Enrico Guala says, this final round takes place less than a year after the Enduro World Series was created, conceived to unite the world’s enduro mountain bike community. “360 days later, we are hosting the most incredible group of mountain bikers coming from all disciplines and backgrounds for the most exciting event the sport has witnessed,” says Guala. Practice commences Thursday and Friday with the first rider setting off at 8:30am on Saturday. Event highlights will be posted at on facebook https://www.facebook...duroWorldSeries, @World_Enduro on twitter and @World_Enduro on Instagram. Image credits: Matt Wragg
