Standby

Ciao bellas!

A network problem on stage 5 means there will be no live timing for this stage unfortunately. But fear not, we’ll get you all the results as soon as we have them. And fingers crossed it will work on stage 6…

We’ll be back with updates on results when we get them and assuming all is well we’ll be back for stage 6 at 2.30pm to bring you all the action from the last stage of the last race of the year.

Can Richie and Tracy hold on to their series leads to become 2015 Enduro World Champions? Or will last night’s storm cause some upset on track with tough, slippy conditions on course. There’s only one way to find out – see you soon!

 

That’s a wrap

Tomorrow will see us crown our new world champions and the competition is very much still on – it’s all still to play for.

Can Richie bring it back from the brink and lift the world championship trophy? Or will Florian Nicolai, Jerome Clementz or Fabien Barel surpass him? And can Tracy hold off a clearly very determined Cecile?

The only way to find out is to tune in right here tomorrow  - you don’t want to miss this!

Full results and photos from today on enduroworldseries.com very soon.

Until tomorrow, ciao!

Wow!

What a day, after three stages it’s Jared Graves and Tracy Moseley who lead the race after day one. They also just so happen to be the reigning world champions – great rides from them today.

Graves

Graves is sitting in 1st on stage 4 currently, with Yoann Barelli in 2nd and Josh Carlson in 3rd – but some of the top 3 are still to come through the finsih. Can Rude pull it back and get one stage win today or will Barel and Clementz stand in his way?

Finale

The main square is getting busier in Finale as the amateurs begin to head back from stage 4 – most of them seem to be heading straight for a gelato. Apart from the English guys – they all seem to be heading straight for beer…

Barel

Barel is looking super focussed today – you don’t win as many titles as he has without it. He’s looking fast we hear – apparently taking lines that no-one else is and looking so smooth. We know he feels at home on this type of terrain – could he make it a win at his last ever race?

Stage 3 men

We don’t know the results for the stage 3 men, but we hear that Oton and Wildhaber looked crazy fast through the technical sections on stage 3. The small guys with Alpine experience could well clean up on this stage

It’s been an interesting year in the women’s field. Tracy and Cecile have dominated, but it’s great to see some young women starting to make their mark on the podium too. Isabeau Courdurier has had great results and now sits 3rd in the overall points

Guala Guala Guala

Enrico Guala, the enduro pope himself is in his element here in the motherland of Italy – he’s on the stage speaking to the men heading back out to stage 3 in French, Italian and English.  We know where he gets his energy from now – the coffee here is so good!

Barel

It’s a bittersweet day for Fabien Barel. Finale is where he made his victorious comeback after breaking his back – and he won the race. But this is his last race as a professional racer and it’s a sad day for the sport – it won’t be the same without him!

Relief

It’ll be a relief to get stage 2 over and done with for most of the field, it’s long and pedally. But it will also be a real test of tactics as they try and ensure they conserve enough energy to tackle the next two stages, both of which are steep and tech

10   409   SCHNEITTER NATHALIE ROSE VAUJANY FUELED BY ULTRASPO  11:32:59 + 59:81

cecile?

If Cecile made a mistake that cost her a few seconds and she was only 2.7secs back on Tracy – it’s safe to say she is charging today! She’s won EWS races before and you can never discount her from pulling it out the bag when it really matters

Tmo ctd

Tracy is leading the series by a comfortable margin, but one mistake would be all it takes for Cecile Ravanel to unseat her. If Cecile wins today and TMo finishes outside the top 30 then Ravanel would be the 2015 World Champ

Long stage

Melanie Pugin’s time of 11:26 on stage 2 shows just how long this stage is. Keeping on full gas for over 11mins is tough and will be a bit of a rude awakening for the riders after yesterday’s enforced rest day after practice was cancelled

The story so far

The cancellation of stage one was a difficult decision to make – it was a lot of the riders favourite stage, but the bad weather has caused flooding issues on the access roads so medical wouldn’t have been able to access it.

Stage 2 has been contentious – a few riders feel there’s a bit too much pedalling involved. Not Josh Carlson though – he said if you’re a professional athlete who’s not fit enough to handle some pedalling you’re in the wrong job….

The amateur and master men are through stage 2 now and any minute now the top 20 women will be heading down it. As soon as they start to come through we’ll have some times for you and we’ll get a better idea of who can weather the physicality of this long stage

Ciao bellas!

Ciao from Finale Ligure for the final round of the year!

It’s been an eventful race already – and the last rider has only just left the start line… The weather isn’t playing ball and we’ve already seen Friday’s practice cancelled and stage 1 cut from today’s race thanks to some stormy weather.

But things are looking up and it’s all good in the event village right now; the sea is calm, the sun is threatening to make an appearance and all riders are out on course.

It’s the last race of the year and very soon we’ll have the top women hitting the first stage of the day. Let’s do this!

Welcome to the Grand Finale!

It’s the last race of the season and we’re back in Finale, where the sun always shines… Except this year! Wild weather has moved into the Italian Riviera and the usual sunshine has been replaced with gale force winds, torrential rain and a severe weather warning. As a result stage one has been cancelled altogether tomorrow, and riders will race only stages two, three and four.

The wild weather is going to mix up the results for sure, so head back here at 12.15pm CET to follow all the action as it happens – and we get ever closer to crowning our 2015 Enduro World Champions.
