LEAD THE EWS IN CHILE

AFTER DAY ONE

 

 

FIRST RACE OF THE YEAR FOR EWS

 

The first Enduro World Series of the year got off to an eventful start as riders rolled off the start line in Corral, Chile to a backdrop of forest fires on the hills above the town. 

All three of the day’s stages were sufficiently far from the fire that emergency services deemed the race safe to continue as planned. It was a long day out for the riders who faced 53km in the searing heat with long, pedal liaisons leading them to three very physical stages. But the conditions proved no problem for Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) and Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Shox) who head into day two leading the race. 

In the women’s race Cecile leads Anneke Beerten (GT Factory Racing ) by 24.10 seconds, with Isabeau Courdurier (Sunn) less than a second back in third place. In the men’s race Richie Rude’s time of 16m06s  gives him a 07.89 second lead over second placed Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing), whilst Nico Vouilloz (Lapierre Gravity Republic) sits in third and is 10.36 seconds off Rude’s time. 

In the U21 Men Sebastien Claquin (Rocky Mountain Urge BP) leads the race, with Chilean rider Pedro Burns (Ibis Cycles Enduro Race) in second and reigning World Champion Adrien Dailly (Lapierre Gravity Republic) in third. In the Master’s race French rider Karim Amour leads, with Chileans Ignacio Rojo and Jan Guzman in second and third place respectively. 

 

With three stages still to go, it’s all still to play for.
