    Crowd are going wild

    Greg’s home crowd are going wild – they’re in the finish bowl with beer, cow horns and more than a few tears!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:30:00
    What a race!

    Mechanicals, punctures and the mother of all wins! Well done Greg Callaghan!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:29:10

    1 Greg Callaghan

    2 Sam Hill

    3 Richie Rude

    15 May, 2016 - 18:28:33
    Amazing!

    They said it was a fairytale first time round and it could never happen again – but it just did!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:27:05
    Callaghan

    He wins again in front of his home crowd!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:26:43
    Greg wins!!!

    He does it again!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:24:11
    Rude!

    Only 1 man left to come and he’s the only one that could stop Greg winning….

    15 May, 2016 - 18:23:42
    Maes

    Maes back and high 5-ing the crowd on the way -way off the pace after his penalty for a wheel change but good on him for heading back out for the fans

    15 May, 2016 - 18:21:58
    Maes

    Maes next man down, but a wheel change got him a 5 min penalty so he’s out the race and riding for fun

    15 May, 2016 - 18:21:18
    Jerome 10th

    Clementz goes 10th – only Rude stands between Greg and victory now!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:20:36
    3 men left

    just 3 to come, and only 2 can trouble Greg’s time – Rude or Clementz

    15 May, 2016 - 18:19:59
    Crowds are ready…

    They’re shaking the beer cans, they think Greg can do it…

    15 May, 2016 - 18:18:47
    Nico

    Vouilloz manuals over the line, that flat in stage 2 put him out of contention in the race

    15 May, 2016 - 18:18:03
    Finish Corral

    is so tense right now!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:17:15
    Can Clementz or Rude beat Greg?

    We’ll know in the next 4 mins…

    15 May, 2016 - 18:16:00
    only 2 can beat Greg

    But after mechanicals it’s only Rude or Clementz that can unseat Greg

    15 May, 2016 - 18:15:12
    4 men left

    Maes, Clementz, Rude and Vpuilloz but…

    15 May, 2016 - 18:14:45
    Toni

    Toni Ferreiro is way back on time, but his manual over the line is a great crowd pleaser!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:14:03
    Can Rude do something special?

    It would take a superhuman effort from Rude to unseat Greg now…

    15 May, 2016 - 18:13:18
    Flo goes 4th

    He’s 9 secs back on Greg – Callaghan still leads!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:12:34
    7 riders still to come

    Nicolai should be up next

    15 May, 2016 - 18:12:13
    FBM

    Francois Baily Maitre goes 9th – Callaghan still leads!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:11:32
    Could he do it again

    Callaghan still leads Hill by 3 secs!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:10:38
    Huge crowds

    There are huge crowds in the finish arena and the tension is palpable

    15 May, 2016 - 18:08:12
    Greg leads for now

    He came over the line with an Irish flag and it’s looking good, but there’s still men on the hill….

    15 May, 2016 - 18:06:20
    Top men coming home

    The top men are arriving back into the finish arena…. this race is nearly over…

    15 May, 2016 - 18:04:59
    Greg just needs a good run to do this

    But can he handle the pressure?!

    15 May, 2016 - 18:03:15
    Greg 4 secs up!

    We stand corrected – Greg is actually 4 secs up

    15 May, 2016 - 17:58:13
    Nothing guaranteed

    So nothing is sure for Greg – less than half a second separate the top men – this race will go right to the wire and with such close times although he leads the race currently, there’s no guarantee he’ll even be on the podium!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:56:42
    And now for the men…

    So the last man down the hill will be Richie Rude in 3 mins time…

    15 May, 2016 - 17:53:57
    Tracy

    Tracy won 6 of today’s 7 stages – Isabeau winning the final stage of the day. But Tracy smoked the rest of the field – she won by nearly 40secs!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:52:39
    Top 5 women

    1 Tracy Moseley

    2 Cecile Ravanel

    3 Isabeau Courdurier

    4 Anita Gehrig

    5 Carolin Gehrig

    15 May, 2016 - 17:49:44
    Isabeau wins stage 7

    Isabeau wins stage 7 but it’s not enough – 6 stage wins for Tracy sees her crowned the champ in Ireland for the second year in a row

    15 May, 2016 - 17:47:01
    women top 3

    1 Tracy Moseley

    2 Cecile Ravanel

    3 Isabeau Courdurier

    15 May, 2016 - 17:46:26
    Tracy wins!

    Her only EWS of the year and true to form Tracy wins the race!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:44:49
    Women

    The women are starting to finish stage 7 – as soon as they’re all in the finish corral and do the time check we’ll have the results

    15 May, 2016 - 17:43:43

    Greg leads after 6 stages but Florian Nicolai, Theo Galy and Sam Hill who are 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively are less than half a second apart! I can’t take this!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:42:15
    Holy it’s tight!

    Less than half a second separates the top 4!!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:40:48
    Rude wins stage 6

    Richie Rude wins stage 6, but Greg still leads the race

    15 May, 2016 - 17:39:31
    Stage 6 results are in…

    And Greg Callaghan still leads the race!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:22:50
    Graves out

    Graves is also out due to a puncture – it’s carnage out there!

    15 May, 2016 - 17:20:06
    Stage 6 men’s results

    Should be in soon – they’re on the way to time check now

    15 May, 2016 - 17:07:21
    Gehrig twins

    Great to see the Gehrig twins in 4th and 5th – the Ibis riders have had a great start to this season

    15 May, 2016 - 17:06:28
    Top 5 women
    1st 1 Tracy MOSELEY
    2nd 2 Cecile RAVANEL
    3rd 4 Isabeau COURDURIER
    4th 6 Anita GEHRIG
    5th 1011 Carolin GEHRIG
    15 May, 2016 - 17:04:58
    TMO leads

    Tracy leads after 6 stages – Cecile is now 41 secs back in 2nd, Isabeau just 4 secs on that in 3rd

    15 May, 2016 - 17:03:23
    TMO

    She does it again – she wins stage 6!

    15 May, 2016 - 16:59:58
    Maunsell leads

    Leah Maunsell, the young Irish rider, goes into first after 6 stages in the U21 – pushing Raphaela Richter into 2nd, Elena Melton into 3rd and Abigale Lawton into 4th

    15 May, 2016 - 16:58:14
    Under 21 Women

    In stage 6, Irish rider Leah Maunsell wins, Raphaela Richter goes 2nd, Elena Melton 3rd and Abigale Lawton 4th

    15 May, 2016 - 16:56:38
    Mechanicals

    Mechanicals have really shaken this race up – all the victims of the stage 2 punctures have dropped way back. Which will really impact the season rankings – everything will change by the end of this race

    15 May, 2016 - 16:54:46
    Rude

    Richie Rude is now back in 9th in the overall – it looks like that flat on stage 2 has really cost him. He’s pulled off some impressive comebacks in his time – but making up nearly 19secs over 2 stages is a tall order even for him

    15 May, 2016 - 16:50:55
    Last year

    Last year Greg won 4 of the 7 stages, this year he’s failed to win a single one so far – but his consistency is paying off and it’s been enough to keep him in the lead so far

    15 May, 2016 - 16:49:07
    Could we see this again?

    Mattwragg_20150523_5983

    Who can forget last year’s race and the emotions that went with it when Greg took to the podium? There’s still 2 stages to go – can Greg hold off the legend that is Sam Hill?

    15 May, 2016 - 16:43:48
    But it’s tight

    Greg leads Sam Hill by just 0.3secs and there’s still 2 stages to go….

    15 May, 2016 - 16:42:22
    Men’s top 5

    1 Greg Callaghan

    2 Sam Hill

    3 Theo Galy

    4 Florian Nicolai

    15 May, 2016 - 16:40:14

    She does it, TMO wins stage 5! Isabeau Courdurier just 1 sec back in 2nd though and Cecile goes 3rd

    15 May, 2016 - 16:08:38
    Tracy leads stage 5

    But she’s got Cecile Ravanel and Isabeau Courdurier chasing her down…

    15 May, 2016 - 16:04:07
    7 stages

    This race is a big day in the saddle for the riders – 7 stages with about 45km of riding in total. The stages have some pretty technical sections to contend with, and the riders will be relieved that they’ve dried out since the start of practice on Friday

    15 May, 2016 - 15:55:48
    Killian Callaghan still leads!

    Killian Callaghan still leads the U21 after 6 stages! He’s 4 secs up on Leigh Johnson, with Vid Persak of Slovenia in 3rd

    15 May, 2016 - 15:53:15
    U21 Men

    After the first 4 stages Killian Callaghan was leading the U21 Men – and he just happens to be the cousin of another famous Callaghan from round these parts – talented family!

    15 May, 2016 - 15:47:56
    Women on stage 5 now

    The pro women are now starting stage 5 and then they’ll have to head through a time check before we can get their results

    15 May, 2016 - 15:45:28
    Clementz

    Jerome was one of the few riders who didn’t puncture on stage 2, but is such a nice guy when he saw how many people did, he threw his pump out his bag and left it at the bottom of the stage and simply said “someone is going to need that” before he rode off

    15 May, 2016 - 15:35:36
    Team competition

    With Vouilloz and Dailly out of the race for Lapierrre there is definitely going to be a new leader in the team competition at the end of today

    15 May, 2016 - 15:29:10
    Amazing atmosphere

    The crowd and atmosphere are so amazing here that despite being out the race, Vouilloz, Maes and beerten have all headed up the hill to put on a show for the fans who’ve come out to see them – such a good show of sportsmanship

    15 May, 2016 - 15:24:39
    Greg

    If Greg can pull this off and beat Nicolai we’re actually a bit scared about the crowd’s reactions – it’s wild out there!

    15 May, 2016 - 15:20:43
    Maes heading back out

    Both Martin Maes and Anneke Beerten are out the race results wise, but both have headed back out to finish the race. Martin said the crowds were what were spurring to him head out and just have fun

    15 May, 2016 - 15:17:54

    After 4 stages Florian Nicolai is in 1st! But just 0.1sec back is local hero Greg Callaghan!

    15 May, 2016 - 15:10:47
    Penalty for Maes

    A new back wheel for Martin Maes means a 5 minute penalty which means his race is over – there’s no way he can make that up

    15 May, 2016 - 15:09:02
    Maes destroyed back wheel

    Ravanel

    women stage wins

    And to show just how dominant she’s been check out her stage wins this year – she’s won 9 of the 12 stages so far this year

    15 May, 2016 - 14:33:41
    Ravanel

    Cecile Ravanel is now over 35secs back on Moseley. That’s not what Ravanel will have been hoping for, she’s the series leader having won the first 2 rounds of the year in Chile and Argentina

    15 May, 2016 - 14:30:44
    And stage 4!

    It’s a clean sweep for TMO -she’s won 4 stages so far! 3 to go!

    15 May, 2016 - 14:29:40
    TMO

    And she does it again, TMO wins stage 3! Isabeau goes 2nd, Cecile goes 3rd

    15 May, 2016 - 14:28:03
    Insane!

    You know who’s not out?! Baptiste Gaillot – he snapped his crank on stage 1 and made every stage time with just 1 crank – crazy!

    15 May, 2016 - 14:25:27
    Vouilloz out

    nico

    Poor Nico flatted and is out… this is him heading back to the pits

    15 May, 2016 - 14:24:14
    First man back

    Darren Kinnaird, EMBA board member, manager of Crankworx and all round good guy was the first man off and is the first man back. It’s his 40th birthday and we think he’ll be celebrating pretty hard tonight!

    15 May, 2016 - 14:22:47
    And Maes?!

    And Martin Maes goes 85th on stage 2 – what is going on with this stage?! It’s got some pretty technical rocky section s but it didn’t cause nearly so many problems in practice

    15 May, 2016 - 14:20:44
    Rude had a problem

    We don’t know happened to Richie in stage 2, but he came in 70th!

    15 May, 2016 - 14:18:16
    Oton wins stage 2

    Damien wins stage 2! Nicolai goes 2nd on stage, Sam Hill goes 3rd!

    15 May, 2016 - 14:06:03
    Rude
    Riding at race speed from the offset, Richie Rude was undeterred by the slick conditions in the morning

    Even in practice Rude has been going full gas – could he be unstoppable here?

    15 May, 2016 - 14:02:29
    Women on stage 3

    The women are on stage 3 now – Bex Barona currently leads but the top women to still to time check

    15 May, 2016 - 14:00:46
    Rude the man to beat

    Rude is the reigning World Champion and won the first two races of the year. The young American is a hot favourite here in Ireland – he finished third here last year but since then he’s been named World Champion, won 3 races in 2015 and the opening two rounds of this season.

    15 May, 2016 - 14:00:10
    Nicolai

    Florian Nicolai has gone into the lead on stage 2 – will he be able to keep Rude at bay though?

    15 May, 2016 - 13:58:55
    Melamed

    Jesse Melamed is stoked though – “the trails here are just mint!”

    15 May, 2016 - 13:58:16
    Crowds

    There are thousands upon thousands of fans out in the sun here in Ireland – an electric atmosphere for sure. Unless you flat – Anneke just rolled past looking pretty upset

    15 May, 2016 - 13:55:34
    Callaghan

    Greg Callaghan goes 13th on stage 2 – he’s got some serious work to do if he wants to repeat his incredible win here last year

    15 May, 2016 - 13:53:32
    Beerten out?

    Anneke just spotted rolling back into the pits with that flat – looks like she’s out of the race

    15 May, 2016 - 13:52:02
    Stage 2 men

    In the men’s race we’re still waiting for the results of the top few men, but Sam Hill is currently leading stage 2

    15 May, 2016 - 13:46:06
    Flats all over stage 2!
    15 May, 2016 - 13:40:33
    Until clipping a pedal on the run out wreaks havoc

    This isn’t the only mishap for Maes here in Ireland – check out his crash in practice!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:39:05
    Maes flats!

    Martin gets a rear flat on stage 2 as well – we need him to get through the timing station before we know how that will affect his time

    15 May, 2016 - 13:37:27
    Beerten

    Interestingly, Beerten was the only one to stop and fix her puncture on the track, everyone else just rolled down with their flat, and it looks like that decision may have cost her the race

    15 May, 2016 - 13:36:14
    Punctures

    We’re hearing stage 2 is claiming victims all over the place – so far we hear Beerten, Josh Carlson, Toni Ferreiro and Nico Lau have all punctured on stage 2

    15 May, 2016 - 13:35:02
    Tracy storming it

    Tracy is killing it! She’s now 21 seconds up on series leader Ravanel and 29 seconds up on third placed Courdurier

    15 May, 2016 - 13:32:52
    Women’s top 10
    1st 1 Tracy MOSELEY Trek Factory Racing (GBR) 9:19.01 3:32.62 (1st) 5:46.39 (1st)

    15 May, 2016 - 13:32:03
    TMO does it again!

    Tracy wins stage 2! Ravanel goes 2nd, Anita Gehrig goes 3rd, her twin sister Carolin goes 4th and Isabeau into 5th on that stage. Standby to see how this affects the overall…

    15 May, 2016 - 13:29:25
    Quarq

    Don’t forget you can track the racers with the new Quarq GPS tacking – see who rides with who on the liaisons, their average speed and how far they are through the race

    15 May, 2016 - 13:27:51
    Sven Martin

    That last fact came from superstar snapper Sven Martin, who is glued to the live timing all the way from NZ. It’s the middle of the night but that man is dedicated!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:26:40
    Tight at the top!

    We are in for a close race! After the first stage just 3 seconds separate 3rd to 13th place!!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:24:46
    Moseley leads stage 2 currently

    But there’s still Cecile and Isabeau to come…

    15 May, 2016 - 13:23:43
    Beerten

    Anneke is having a nightmare – she fixed first puncture only to flat again. She’s now stranded trackside waiting for help from a fellow racer

    15 May, 2016 - 13:20:58
    Dailly

    U21 Adrien Dailly won the first stage but went 53rd on stage 2. The young French rider has been riding with a broken hand ad it must be taking it’s toll

    15 May, 2016 - 13:18:48
    U21 men

    In the U21 men Killian Callaghan leads!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:17:02
    Hill

    Sam of course is more famous for his downhill career, but he’s raced a couple of enduros now – even winning an EWS stage in Rotorua last year

    15 May, 2016 - 13:15:34
    Stage 1 results

    That’s an interesting top 10 from the men’s field after the first stage. Rude and Maes are yet again locked in battle with less than half a second separating them, with Callaghan over 3 secs back. Great result from Theo Galy in fourth and none other than Sam Hill in 5th

    15 May, 2016 - 13:13:40
    Top 10 men

    15 May, 2016 - 13:12:44
    Maes 2nd

    Martin Maes is 0.3secs back on Rude in 2nd, Callaghan in 3rd!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:11:55
    Rude wins stage 1!

    He does it! Richie takes stage 1!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:10:21
    Beerten flats

    While we wait for news on Rude, we’ve heard from the hill that Beerten did flat on stage 2 and it’s probably going to cost her the podium spot she’d be looking for

    15 May, 2016 - 13:08:12
    Rude

    We’re still waiting to hear Rude’s time on stage 1 – can he beat Maes? It’s a real battle between these two this year

    15 May, 2016 - 13:06:45
    Beerten

    The pro women are on stage 2 now – word is Anneke Beerten may have flatted at start of the stage

    15 May, 2016 - 13:05:38
    Maes!

    Martin Maes leading stage 1 – can Rude beat him?!

    15 May, 2016 - 13:04:19
    Pro Men

    In the pro men last year’s winner and local legend Greg Callaghan leads stage 1 – but we don’t yet have the times of the top 20 so that could very well change

    15 May, 2016 - 13:02:15
    Amour

    Former XC rider Karim Amour was the favourite going into this race – he won in both Chile and Argentina earlier this year. In fact, he’s won 10 of the 12 stages raced so far this year. None of the Irish are surprised though – Robin is well known in these parts for his speed

    15 May, 2016 - 13:00:24
    Master Men

    The master men were the first to head off this season, and they are now four stages in and Irish rider Robin Seymour is leading -winning all 4 stages so far

    15 May, 2016 - 12:56:17
    Galy

    Theo Galy is leading stage one, but the top 30 men’s times aren’t through yet – should be with us any minute now

    15 May, 2016 - 12:54:34
    Men’s race

    The men are through stage one now but we need them to head through the timing checkpoint before we get their times

    15 May, 2016 - 12:51:20
    Women’s top 10
    1st 1 Tracy MOSELEY Trek Factory Racing (GBR) 3:32.62 3:32.62 (1st)

    15 May, 2016 - 12:50:07
    TMo

    #EWSireland is Tracy’s only EWS race this year – the reigning world champ has decided not to defend her title. She won here last year and a 9 sec lead over Cecile is convincing – but there are seven stages in this race and Ravanel is nothing if not a fighter. This should be good!

    15 May, 2016 - 12:47:43
    Courdurier

    And Isabeau is in 3rd – 3secs back on Cecile and 12secs back on leader Moseley

    15 May, 2016 - 12:46:38
    Tracy Moseley leads!

    After the first stage Tracy Moseley leads Cecile Ravanel by nearly 9 seconds!

    15 May, 2016 - 12:45:31
    The race is go!

    All riders are now on course and the women have completed stage one and we have a race leader…

    15 May, 2016 - 9:34:15
    Quarq

    In the meantime why not get to know our pretty amazing new Quarq GPS tracking system… You can track your favourite riders on course, see their times and even find out their average speeds – it’s going to add a whole new dimension to our coverage!

    See you all at 12.45pm GMT!

    Hello Sunshine!
