  1. 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
  2. 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. Results from this weekend can be found here and the full highlights show will be out very soon!
  3. Richie Rude looks up to full health as he attacks the first corner of the final stage. Credit: Enduro World Series. Both Rude (Yeti Fox Shox) and Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) each staged incredible comebacks after their days got off to a bad start. Cecile suffered mechanicals on both stages one and two, whilst Richie had to contend with a flat tyre on stage two. This put both of them at a disadvantage going into the next stages - with Cecile only just making her stage three start time. Cecile had a mechanical with her drivetrain and a flat on the second stage yet battled on to take the win. Credit: Enduro World Series. Everything hinged on the epic stage five, the famous Top of the World trail. Isabeau Courdurier (Sunn) led the women's race all the way to the stage five, but a blistering time from Cecile was enough for the series leader to clinch the win. It was a similar story in the men's race - Whistler local Jesse Melamed (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) was on course for his first EWS win and on home soil too, but Rude's run on stage five put paid to that and he went on to win both the stage and the race. Josh Carlson (Giant Factory Off Road Team) and Casey Brown (Trek Factory Racing) both occupied the third step of the podium. Miranda Miller makes easy work of the blown out chute on stage 4.

In the Under 21 Men's race Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) smashed the field once again to win, with Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge bp) in second and Rhys Verner in third. In the U21 Women Canadian Jennifer McTavish led out Martha Gill (Marin Stan's). Chris Johnston has had some impressive stage results so far this year. Credit: Enduro World Series. In the Master's race it was Brian Lopes who romped to victory, with Michael Broderick in second and Master's World Champion Woody Hole (Hope) in third.

In the team competition Rocky Mountain Urge bp were team of the day, with Giant Off Road Factory Team in second and Ibis Cycles Enduro Race in third. There were a couple of rock rolls on stage 2, Whistler classic tech. Credit: Enduro World Series. The competition heads back to Europe for the last two rounds of the year, first to Valberg-Guillaumes in France before the 2016 World Champions are crowned in Finale, Italy.
  4. Richie Rude and Cecile Ravanel have done it again - they win the SRAM Canadian Open Enduro Presented by Specialized. Click here to view the article
  5. No one thought it possible, but there was more dust and even more drama at day two of the Cerro Catedral Montenbaik Enduro World Series Presented By Shimano. Click here to view the article
  6. 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
  7. 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/
  8. The Enduro World Season couldn’t have got off to a more dramatic start as Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) and Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro) won the first race of the season, the Montenbaik Enduro World Series in Chile. Click here to view the article
  9. The Superenduro powered by SRAM was the tightest fought race in the series’ history - with the top three men all within 2 seconds of each other. It was Jared Graves (Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Team) who won the race, with Fabien Barel (Canyon Factory Enduro Team) and Nico Vouilloz (Lapierre Gravity Republic) not far behind in second and third respectively. After 20 years of racing each other all around the world, less than a half second separated Barel and Vouilloz. But it was young American Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Team) who eclipsed them all. Despite coming 11th in the race he was named the 2015 Enduro World Champion after an incredible season. In the women’s race, it was Tracy Moseley (Trek Factory Racing Enduro Team) who triumphed in both the race and the championship as she claimed her third Enduro World Series Champion title. Her closest rival, Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team), had to settle for second place in both the race and the series. Ines Thoma (Canyon Factory Enduro Team) took her first trip to the EWS podium, after placing third in the race. However, a consistent year from Anneke Beerten saw her take third in the overall series points. In the U21 Women’s category, it was young rider Axelle Murigneux who was named World Champion, whilst fellow French rider Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) took the U21 Men’s category. Woody Hole was named Master World Champion - not bad for a man who had a hip replacement just 18 months ago. A jubilant Canyon Factory Enduro Team took home the Team title. Speaking after her historic win, Tracy confirmed she wouldn’t be back to defend her title. “It feels surreal - all of this year has been about getting to this point and winning this title and making it a third time. but it’s time to move on to the next stage of my life. I haven’t actually made any plans for the future - everything has been about getting to this point and ending on a high. I won’t be defending my title but I’ll still be around and you’ll still see me riding my bike. I’m looking forward to seeing how the EWS evolves - it’s been an amazing three years and it’s probably the most fun I’ve had on my bike ever. I’m excited to see where things go in the next few years.” Richie added: “It’s always been a dream of mine to be Enduro World Champion, but I didn’t think it would happen in the second year. It’s out of this world.” And Enduro World Series Managing Director Chris Ball said: “Wow. What a year. It’s had its highs and lows, emotions and drama. From the native jungle of Rotorua to the Italian Riviera in Finale, the racing has been tighter than ever, the boundaries pushed even higher and the championship fought to the very end. With a stream of young talent rising to the forefront, 2015 will be a season to remember and the future looks bright. Congratulations to our champions and thank you to our fans, supporters and the enduro community” Full results and series rankings now available on enduroworldseries.com. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/424465/
  10. The final round of the Enduro World Series was a suitably dramatic ending to a season that encompassed eight rounds across eight countries and three continents.On the shores of the Mediterranean in Finale’s famous town square, Richie Rude and Tracy Moseley were named as the 2015 Enduro World Champions. And it was in the same setting that Fabien Barel and Tracy announced they would be hanging up their helmets and retiring from racing. Click here to view the article

  12. When you base a race village within the walls of a twelfth century castle and race through ancient cobbled streets it’s bound to leave an impression - but that’s not the only reason Ainsa will be go down as a legendary race. The most extreme weather the series has ever encountered forced the cancellation of a stage - but even flash flooding couldn’t dampen the spirit of this event. Stage eight, the last of the day, was cancelled after torrential rain led to flash flooding turning the track into a river. The results were taken from the first seven stages and therefore it was Tracy Moseley (Trek Factory Racing Enduro Team) and Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Team) who took the win. Rude had the ride of this life taking all four stages on Saturday, but Sunday was more of a mixed bag as he failed to win any stages, but his blistering pace meant he still finished 20 seconds ahead of the rest of the field. There was no such gaps between second and third place - less than a second separated Yoann Barelli (Giant Factory Off Road Team) and Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) respectively. In the women’s race Tracy took one less stage than second placed Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) but with a 25 second lead she was untouchable. Isabeau Courdurier (Rocky Mountain Urge BP Rally Team) continued her strong season with a third place. And whilst the weather was as dramatic as the setting, it was the crowds of Spanish fans lining the tracks that Ainsa will be remembered for. Every stage was lined with thousands upon thousands of screaming fans, helped along by the bars that had been carried out to every stage. Speaking after the race, Tracy Moseley said: “It was a good day the first three stages Cecile was close all day and I just wanted to make sure I was safe but still pushing hard - she definitely pushed me this weekend which was cool. Unfortunately the last stage of the day was a washout and ended up sliding down the track on my bum with the help of a load of spectators like everyone else, it was the only way we could get down. It was an epic end to an amazing weekend and I can’t wait for Finale now.” Richie added: “It feels good to win, when you come into a season you never really know what exactly will happen and I was kind of expecting top fives this year so to win three in a row -I thought it would never happen. I’m pretty stoked with it and now I’m just hoping finale goes smoothly now.” http://www.pinkbike.com/video/423660/ In the Under 21 men’s category it was Amaury Pierron who won by an incredible 40 seconds, with Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) and Elliot Trabac (Scott SR Suntour Enduro Team). In the U21 Women Axelle Murigneux won convincingly over Martha Gill (Marin Bikes/Stan’s No Tubes). In the Master’s category Carles Barcon won, with Primoz Strancar in second and Eduardo Garcia Cuesto in third. In the team competition Canyon Factory lead the series. Next weekend sees the series head to Italy for the last race of the year, where 550 riders will take to the famous trails of Finale before the 2015 Enduro World Champions are crowned on the beach.

  13. Tracy Moseley on stage 2 in practice during Enduro World Series round 6, Whistler, Canada, 2015. Photo by Matt Wragg. Josh Carlson (Giant Factory Off-Road Team) was leading the race for a large part of the day, only to have his dreams of victory dashed by a rear flat on the final stage of the day. Instead he had to watch team mate Yoann Barelli ride into second place - his best ever finish. Nico Lau (Cube Action Team) was also looking strong after a win on stage three, but a puncture on the next stage put paid to his chances of a podium finish. But the men’s field belonged to Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox Factory Team). He smashed the field by 40 seconds to take his second win of the season. Team mate Jared Graves finished in third. Series leader Justin Leov (Trek Factory Racing Enduro Team) suffered a separated shoulder on stage one, forcing him out of the race and giving up the series lead in the process. In the women’s field it was Tracy Moseley (Trek Factory Racing Enduro Team) that once again proved why she’s known as the queen of enduro - she clocked up her fourth win of the season. But it was Isabeau Courdurier (Rocky Mountain Urge BP Rally Team) who was the talk of the pits, as she took not only her first stage win, but also her first trip to the podium to grace the third step. Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team), who won in Whistler last year, had to settle for second place. Speaking about his win, Rude said: “It’s kind of unbelievable to be honest. When I won in France a I said it was a dream come true to be on the podium with Barel and Vouilloz - and now to be on the podium at Crankworx Whistler is another one off the list. I’ve wanted this since I was a little kid. The only thing that’s left is to win the overall series.” And Tracy added: “This year’s course was really fun. The stages were hard and technical, but all the racing was in the stages and not the liaisons this year which was great. It’s bittersweet not having Anne Caroline Chausson to race against - you always to compete against the whole field, but in some ways it’s nice to have the pressure off a bit as well. For me the coolest thing today was to see Isabeau on the podium - it’s amazing to see that next generation of women coming up through the ranks.” In the U21 men’s competition it was Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) who triumphed once again, whilst in the U21 women it was Canadian Jennifer McTavish who took the win. In the Master’s category it was series leader Woody Hole (Hope Technology) who triumphed. In the team competition, Canyon Factory Enduro Team now lead the points.
