  • See you in Whistler!

    10 days ago

    We'll be back next month for Round 6, the CamelBak Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized in Whistler.

  • And that's it!

    10 days ago

    And so that's round 5 done! We know the Pivot Cycles Team drove through the night from Andorra in the hope that Eddie could do it - and he did. So we're now off to lock up our daughters, batten down the hatches and prepare for a winner's party Eddie style.

  • Eddie

    10 days ago

    Eddie was meant to be racing in Andorra at the DH World Cup this weekend, but changed his mind after that 3rd place finish in Italy at the EWS last weekend. It certainly worked out for him!

  • Wow.

    10 days ago

    Well who was expecting that? All week here in Les Orres there's been so much talk about how fast the French were looking - and Kiwi Eddie has given them a masterclass.

  • (Provisional) Men's Overall

    10 days ago

    1. Eddie Masters
    2. Richie Rude
    3. Adrien Dailly
    4. Florian Nicolai
    5. Dimitri Tordo

  • What a race!

    10 days ago

    Eddie Masters has won his first EWS - beating Rude by just 1 second! Dailly goes 3rd!

  • Eddie wins his first EWS!

    10 days ago

    Eddie Masters wins his first EWS in Les Orres!

  • EDDIE WINS!

    10 days ago

    HE DOES IT! HE WINS STAGE 8!!!

  • Crowds

    10 days ago

    The roar from the pits is making it back to the media and then some - the French crowds have turned out in force for this one!

  • Adrien Dailly goes 2nd!

    10 days ago

    But he places 2nd on stage 8! He's 3 seconds behind Rude but if he's crashing and putting down times like that perhaps he's not as tired as he thought!

  • Dailly

    10 days ago

    Hard not to feel bad for Adrien - he started the day with the lead and sounds like he's now having a bad time out there

  • Dailly

    10 days ago

    Word from the pits is that Dailly is knackered - we hear he messaged his mechanic to say he’s done. Tired. Crashing

  • Masters

    10 days ago

    But if anyone is going to be hungry for the win it's Eddie. He's been on the podium twice at the EWS - in Italy last weekend and in La Thuile last year - but has never managed better than a 3rd place before - could this be his time?

  • Rude's time

    10 days ago

    Rude's time is looking good - to be nearly 5 seconds up on such a short course against a stacked field is pretty remarkable

  • Elliott Heap

    10 days ago

    Heap goes into 2nd place - just under 5 seconds behind Rude's time!

  • Short stages

    10 days ago

    Greg Callaghan famously said just that in Tasmania in 2017 as he held the lead going into the final stage of the day (a short one) - clipped a pedal and gifted the race to Adrien Dailly, his first EWS win

  • Stage 8

    10 days ago

    Stage 8 is short - Richie's time is 2:29m. It's not a stage where you can necessarily win a race - but you can definitely lose it

  • Top 30 men on stage 8

    10 days ago

    The top 30 men are on stage 8 now - and Rude is in the lead! But we're in for an agonising wait as we've got 10 minutes before Eddie even drops into the stage!

  • What a race!

    10 days ago

    Isabeau continues her winning streak on home soil - and no one is surprised! But what perhaps this race might be remembered for is young German rider Raphaela Richter's performance - she decimated the rest of the women's field and even took two stage wins from Isabeau. She hasn't raced an EWS in over 2 years - but will we see her at any more EWS races this season? We suspect we might after today

  • Women's overall!

    10 days ago

    So after all the stages in this race, the women's (provisional) overall looks like this;

    1. Isabeau Courdurier
    2. Raphaela Richter
    3. Miranda Miller
    4. Ines Thoma
    5. Noga Korem



  • Isabeau wins the race!

    10 days ago

    And while all that was going on in the men's race - Isabeau has just won stage 8 by less than a second! Meaning she wins the race!

  • So tight!

    10 days ago

    After 41 minutes of racing it all comes down to half a second in the men's field - this is surely one of the closest races in the history of the EWS?!

  • Masters Vs Rude

    10 days ago

    So with just stage 8 to go it all comes down to this - whoever goes fastest on stage 8 is probably going to be crowned the round 5 winner

  • WOW!

    10 days ago

    With just one stage left in this race Eddie Masters leads the overall - by less than half a second! Rude in 2nd and Dailly back in 3rd!

  • Eddie wins stage 7!

    10 days ago

    Masters wins stage 7! Florian Nicolai 2nd and Rude 3rd!

  • Masters!

    10 days ago

    Eddie is faster! He's more than 2 seconds up on Richie on stage 7!

  • Dimitri Tordo

    10 days ago

    Tordo into 2nd! No one is coming close to Rude's time though - he's 5 seconds clear

  • Dailly 6th!

    10 days ago

    Adrien goes into 6th place on stage 7! He's over 8 seconds slower than Richie - this could see him out the top 3 in the overall with just one stage to go

  • Dailly up next

    10 days ago

    Adrien should be the next rider across the stage 7 line - can he claw back the win from Rude?!

  • Jose Borges into 2nd place!

    10 days ago

    Borges goes into 2nd on stage 7! 5 seconds back on Rude

  • Gustav Wildhaber

    10 days ago

    Big Gusti of Cube Action Team goes into 3rd!

  • Mathew Stuttard

    10 days ago

    Good ride from Stuttard sees him go into 8th

  • Pedro Burns

    10 days ago

    Great ride from Pedro - he goes 5th on stage 7

  • Greg Callaghan into 4th!

    10 days ago

    Greg looks to have had a good stage 7 - comes through in 4th position

  • Richie Rude into lead!

    10 days ago

    Rude crosses the line and instantly into the lead on stage 7 - he's 5 seconds up on Youn Deniaud in 2nd!

  • Deniaud

    10 days ago

    Youn Deniaud into the lead on 7 - next over the line should be Lewis Buchanan

  • Theo Galy leads 7

    10 days ago

    The top 30 men are now on stage 7, and at present it's Theo Galy in the lead - but we're expecting race leader Rude across the finish line any second

  • Women's overall

    10 days ago

    Now as we go into the final stage of round 5 look at the times of Miller, Thoma and Korem; Miller is still in 3rd place in the overall currently - but Ines Thoma is just 1 second behind her! And just 1 second behind Thoma is Noga Korem - it all comes down to the final stage for these three!

  • Isabeau still leads the race

    10 days ago

    Raphaela may have taken the stage 7 win, but Isabeau is still leading the race by a healthy 29 second lead. With just one stage left to go Isabeau is assured of the win - as long as she has a clean run in stage 8...

  • Richter on fire!

    10 days ago

    Raphaela is on fire! She wins stage 7 - that's the second stage win she's taken from Courdurier this race!

  • Richter wins 7!

    10 days ago

    Richter wins stage 7! Isabeau less than 1 second back!

  • Thoma V Miller

    10 days ago

    Don't forget Miller and Thoma are slugging it our for 3rd spot on the podium - Miller has beaten her by 1 second on stage 7 - so it's all going to come down to the final stage for these two

  • Ines Thoma!

    10 days ago

    Thoma through in 3rd - just 1 second behind Miller!

  • Florencia Espineira Herreros

    10 days ago

    Chilean rider drops in to stage 7 finish in 3rd behind Miranda Miller - but it's still Richter out front with a 12 second lead for now

  • Raphaela Richter

    10 days ago

    Richter goes into the lead on stage 7! She puts 30 seconds into Julie Duvert in 2nd- but still women on course - can Isabeau win this stage too?!

  • Paulin wins Master Women!

    10 days ago

    And in the Master Women's category Louise Paulin wins the race! Alba Wunderlin is 2nd and Suvi Vacker goes 3rd

  • Master Men

    10 days ago

    While we wait for the women's times on stage 7, the Master men just arrived back from stage 8 - and it looks like Karim Amour has won the race - by less than two tenths of a second! Cedric Ravanel in 2nd and Italian Bruno Zanchi in 3rd. All results are still provisional at this stage

  • Raphaela Richter on course

    10 days ago

    We hear Richter is now on stage 7 and has just left the start gate - fast! Expect to see her result come through in about 7 mins or so

  • Course preview

    10 days ago

    If you want to see what today's stages - then check out our course preview featuring titans of the sport Anne Caroline Chausson and Tracy Moseley



  • Stage 7

    10 days ago

    Next comes stage 7 - it's shorter than stage 6 but is much steeper. Riders will drop over 630m over 2,8km

  • Dailly vs Rude vs Masters

    10 days ago

    So the order may have switched up after stage 6 - but the top 3 men remain separated by just 3 seconds - incredible! With 2 stages left it's impossible to call this race

  • Rude leads the race!

    10 days ago

    Richie now leads the race! Dailly is 2 seconds behind in 2nd and just 1 second behind him is Eddie!

  • Richie Rude wins stage 6!

    10 days ago

    Rude wins 6, Hill goes 2nd and Nicolai 3rd!

  • Hill and Nicolai

    10 days ago

    Hill and Nicolai only men left on course now

  • Masters goes 2nd!

    10 days ago

    Eddie into 2nd on Stage 6! 3 seconds behind Rude!

  • Masters?

    10 days ago

    Only Eddie Masters can stop Rude taking the race lead now...

  • Adrien Dailly

    10 days ago

    Dailly goes 3rd on stage 6! 4 seconds back - he's lost the race lead to Rude now!

  • Leigh Johnson into 4th

    10 days ago

    British rider Leigh comes through stage 6 in 4th - he's getting better and better this season

  • Matthew Walker

    10 days ago

    Walker into 2nd - but still 8 seconds back on Rude!

  • Shawn Neer into 7th

    10 days ago

    Great ride from Rude's team mate Shawn Neer into 7th place - he provided our Smith Rider Radio playlist on the EWS Spotify channel this week - make sure to give it a listen!

  • Lewis Buchanan

    10 days ago

    Great to see Ibis rider Lewis back after he's been out with a broken wrist - he's gone into 25th on stage 6

  • Christian Textor

    10 days ago

    Textor comes through 8 seconds back - he's another German who's having a great race here in France

  • Richie Rude leads 6!

    10 days ago

    Rude comes through 6 on a mad one! He's up by 15 seconds! What do Masters and Dailly have to say about that? We'll find out very soon

  • Stage 6 men

    10 days ago

    It's currently kiwi Charles Murray leading the men on stage 6. If you look at the series rankings you can see that, in the men's field at least, New Zealand and France are the strongest nations by far. We could be looking at NZ vs France showdown when we get to the Trophy of Nations in Finale this September

  • Special mention to this legend

    10 days ago

    Props to Jason Boulle from South Africa - he destroyed his riding shoes in Val Di Fassa last weekend and the only pair of shoes he had he could change in to where a pair of suede boots. He didn’t better than expected so is rocking them again this race. Pretty insane - although he thinks he may have found their limit on stage 6…

  • Women's race

    10 days ago

    Isabeau and Raphaela are in a league of their own, but the gap from 3rd to 5th place is just over 1 second! So now expect to see dome fierce racing between Miranda Miller (3rd), Ines Thoma (4th) and Noga Korem (5th) as they battle it out for that remaining podium spot with just 2 stages left in the race!

  • Women's overall after 6

    10 days ago

    After 6 stages it's still Isabeau out front and she's extended that lead over Richter to 28 seconds. Miranda Miller has moved into 3rd place and Ines Thoma drops back to 4th.

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins 6!

    10 days ago

    Isabeau wins stage 6 and puts 9 secs into Richter! Andreane Ln in 3rd

  • Isa and Noga

    10 days ago

    Courdurier and Korem only women left on track now

  • Ines Thoma into 4

    10 days ago

    Ines goes 4th and is 13 secs back - she started the day in 3rd position but she may well drop out the top 3 after that run - we'll need to see the last few women on course's times before we know

  • Richter reseeded

    10 days ago

    Raphaela was reseeded after yesterday's amazing performance, and is now grouped amongst the top 15 women, although near the back. The times she's posting are so fast she could well be overtaking some of the other girls on her race runs

  • Raphaela Richter

    10 days ago

    Richter was the only woman to take a stage win from Isabeau yesterday, and looks to be the only rider capable of upsetting Isa's perfect season. The other women must be wondering where Richter has been hiding

  • Raphaela Richter!

    10 days ago

    She does it again - she decimates the field to lead the stage by 29 seconds! Can Isabeau go faster?!

  • Melissa Newell

    10 days ago

    Kiwi Newell comes through in 19th - she's the reigning Master Champion but for this season has opted to race in the main women's field - leaving the master category wide open this year

  • Morgane Jonnier leading 6

    10 days ago

    Jonnier is leading stage 2 but with the top 10 women now all on course that could all be about to change

  • Raphaela Richter

    10 days ago

    She may only be 21, but Raphaela has an impressive racing history - she placed 6th at the Leogang DH World Cup this year and qualified 4th. This is her first EWS race since Millau in 2017 where she didn't finish - this is quite the comeback

  • Women on 6 now

    10 days ago

    That's the women on stage 6 now (the first of the day after stage 5 was cancelled due to weather) - and be sure to keep an eye out for young Raphaela Richter who starts the day in second place.

  • U21 Men

    10 days ago

    Next up were the U21 men - and it's race leader Antoine Vidal who wins the stage! He now leads the race by 6 seconds - Brady Stone is in second and young Specialized rider Francescu Camoin is in 3rd

  • Master Men

    10 days ago

    The Master men were the first people to go through stage 6 today, and it was race leader Cedric Ravanel who took the stage - only to be bested by closest rival and reigning Master Champion Karim Amour on stage 7. And with just one stage left in the race it could not be closer between the two Frenchmen - Karim leads by less than half a second!

  • Stage 5

    10 days ago

    Stage 5 was the longest of today’s stages at over 5km long, but instead they’ll start the day on stage 6. It features 596m of descent and it’s a natural, hand built bike park trail - quite similar to stage 1 yesterday.

  • Welcome to day 2!

    10 days ago

    Welcome to the second day of racing in Les Orres! So after that stage 5 cancellation due to heavy rain this morning, the riders will only tackle stages 6, 7 and 8 today.

  • Stage 6 starts at 11:44

    10 days ago

    Stage 6 is on time and first man to take to the start will be Karim Amour at 11:44 CET - and we'll be here from 13:30 to bring you all the action!

  • Day one recap

    10 days ago

    We'll be back at 13:30 CET to bring you all Sunday's action, but in the meantime, here's what yesterday's race looked like.



  • Today's race

    10 days ago

    The weather threw a rain shaped curveball into Sunday's race. It's currently bright blue skies and sunshine here in Les Orres, but first thing this morning was a very different story. As a result, stage 5 has been cancelled and riders will race stages 6, 7

  • Come back tomorrow!

    11 days ago

    Phew! This race has had more twists and turns than any so far this season - and there's still 4 more glorious stages to go tomorrow. We'll be back then with all the action! In the meantime keep an eye on our social media tonight for plenty of interviews, behind the scenes footage and insight into tomorrow's race. Au revoir!

  • 4 stages tomorrow

    11 days ago

    And with four stages left to go tomorrow, this race is FAR from over!

  • BUT...

    11 days ago

    ...and it's a big but - the times of the top 3 men could not be closer! Dailly's lead over Masters is just 2 seconds - and Rude only trails Masters by 1 second!

  • Adrien Dailly general leads!

    11 days ago

    Dailly finishes day one as leader of the race! Eddie Masters in 2nd and Richie Rude in 3rd!

  • Kevin Miquel wins stage 4!

    11 days ago

    Kevin takes stage 4! Dailly 2nd and Servant 3rd! So the overall now looks like...

  • Hill!

    11 days ago

    Hill into 4th place - just flying Flo left to come!

  • Eddie!

    11 days ago

    Eddie back in 6th place on stage 4!

  • Kevin Miquel leads 4!

    11 days ago

    Goes just 0.29 faster than Dailly!

  • Just 5 riders left on course

    11 days ago

    ...will any of them be able to topple Dailly on 4? Or unseat Edddie from the overall?!

  • Adrien Dailly

    11 days ago

    Dailly now leads 4! He's just over 1 second up on Servant!

  • Camille Servant

    11 days ago

    Impressive time from Servant - no one has been able to challenge him on stage 4 yet - still 10 men to drop in though

  • Greg Callaghan has crashed

    11 days ago

    Callaghan crashes on stage 4! He's up and racing again but apparently lost quite a bit of time

  • Rude on 4

    11 days ago

    And here's Rude on his stage 4 run just a few moments ago - he goes 2nd on 4 - Servant currently still in the lead

  • Men on stage 4

    11 days ago

    The top 30 men will drop into the final stage of the day soon, but the rest of the men's field are through already and it's Camille Servant who leads

  • Women's overall

    11 days ago

    Isabeau and Richter are in a league of their own so far in this race. But the battle behind them is heating up - just 6 seconds separate Ines, Noga and Miranda in 3rd, 4th and 5th place respectively

  • Isabeau leads after day 1!

    11 days ago

    Isa leads after day one by an impressive 20 seconds! Richter sits in 2nd and then it's 54 seconds back to Ines Thoma in 3rd place.

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins stage

    11 days ago

    Isa wins stage 4! Richter 2nd and ALN 3rd - which means...

  • Andreane

    11 days ago

    ALN goes into 2nd - so far no one can touch Richter's stage 4 time

  • Thoma

    11 days ago

    If Noga Korem puts down a good time on stage 4 she may well leap frog Ines into 3rd in the overall - we'll know any second!

  • Raphaela Richter leads stage 4

    11 days ago

    It's still young German rider Richter who leads stage 4 - she's taking on some big names here - Winton, Miller, Thoma all can't match her time - the top 5 women are still to come though

  • Eddie Masters

    11 days ago

    And here's how current race leader Eddie Masters describes his race so far...



  • Pro's bikes at Les Orres

    11 days ago

    While we wait for the top 30 men and top 15 women to get to stage 4, watch what the pros said about bike weight when Ric caught up with them earlier this week



  • Master Women

    11 days ago

    And the Master Women are also done for today - with Louise Paulin taking a clean sweep of the stages. In 2nd is Alba Wunderlin and 3rd is Suvi Vacker

  • Master Men

    11 days ago

    The Master Men are home and after all 4 of today's stages Cedric Ravanel leads. He's 4 seconds up on reigning champ Karim Amour, with Italian Bruno Zanchi in 3rd

  • Harnden wins 4!

    11 days ago

    Harnden wins stage 4 as well! She finishes the first day of racing in the lead with Lucy Schick in 2nd and Leah Maunsell in 3rd

  • U21 women

    11 days ago

    And speaking of superstar mentors - Tracy Moseley's protege Harriet Harnden leads the U21 women! She leads the race by 46 seconds!

  • U21 Men

    11 days ago

    After 3 stages it's series leader Antoine Vidal who leads the U21 category. The Commencal rider is being mentored by Cecile and Cedric Ravanel and it shows - he has a 20 second lead currently. Brady Stone is in 2nd and new Specialized signing Francescu Camoin is in 3rd

  • 5 stages left

    11 days ago

    Masters leads going into the final stage of the day - but there are 4 stages left tomorrow - and the top 3 are only separated by 2 seconds. There is still a lot that could happen in this race!

  • Masters

    11 days ago

    Eddie Masters has had two EWS podiums in his career - 3rd in Rotorua 2017 and 3rd in la Thuile in 2018 - but could he be on his way to first EWS win?!

  • Masters leads the race!

    11 days ago

    Eddie Masters is in the lead! He leads the overall after 3 stages - by just 1 second! Dailly is in 2nd and Rude has dropped into 3rd but is also just 1 second back on Dailly!! Only 1 stage to go today!

  • Sam Hill

    11 days ago

    Hill into 2nd! This race is constantly changing - it's getting pretty damned exciting!

  • Eddie Masters

    11 days ago

    Eddie into 5th on stage 3 - the overall is definitely in for a shakeup!

  • Rude may lose the lead...

    11 days ago

    Going into this stage Rude had a 9 second lead ver Dailly - and Dailly just put 10 secs into him. Can Masters go faster than Dailly?!

  • Dailly!

    11 days ago

    Adrien into the lead on stage 3 - he takes 10 seconds out of Rude!

  • Rude

    11 days ago

    Rude leads stage 3 - but he's just over 1 second up on Hugo Pigeon. There's every chance Eddie Masters will be able to capitalise on that to claw back some time on 3

  • Richie Rude OTB

    11 days ago

    Rude goes over the bars on 3! It's going to cost him time - we'll know how much very soon

  • Richie Rude has crashed

    11 days ago

    And we hear Rude has crashed on stage 3!

  • Women's overall

    11 days ago

    That stage win for Richter doesn't change the overall - Isabeau sees her lead cut, but she's still 17 secs clear. Ines Thoma holds onto 3rd and is 47 secs back

  • Raphaela Richter

    11 days ago

    Richter beats by Courdurier by 2 seconds on stage 3! Miller is 3rd - but 15 seconds behind.

  • And we're back!

    11 days ago

    We've just sent a gaggle of media down to stage 4 to catch the end of the race - and in the meantime Raphaela Richter has won stage 3!!

  • Stage 3

    11 days ago

    There's a big pedal liaison to stage 3, so while the riders tackle that, check out this week's course preview featuring the legendary Anne Caroline Chausson and Tracy Moseley



  • Stage 2

    11 days ago

    Sounds like stage 2 claimed a few victims - Thomas Lapeyrie has torn off his derailleur, Sam Hill was late and will incur a time penalty and we hear his team mate Kelan Grant also flatted

  • Florian Nicolai

    11 days ago

    Series leader Flo is back in 4th after the first 2 stages - he's 14 seconds off the pace. But this is a 2 day race and there are 6 stages left...

  • Richie Rude leads the race

    11 days ago

    Yeti's Richie Rude leads the race after 2 stages! He's 3 seconds up on Eddie Masters in 2nd whilst Adrien Dailly is a further 8 seconds back in 3rd!

  • Hill 9th on 2

    11 days ago

    Sam Hill goes 9th on stage 2

  • Hill

    11 days ago

    Sounds like Sam is having a bad day at the office - we guess that late start to stage 2 will be because of the puncture he had on stage 1 - but whatever time he puts down now will be almost irrelevant as he will pick up a time penalty. How big the penalty depends on how late he was

  • Hill still on stage 2...

    11 days ago

    A late start to stage 2 means Sam Hill is the last man down the stage - he could win the stage but he's going to incur a time penalty

  • Masters!

    11 days ago

    Eddie into 2nd behind Rude!

  • Dimitri Tordo into 3rd

    11 days ago

    Tordo into 3rd on stage 2 - his team mate Flo leads the series and will be last man down each stage today

  • Adrien Dailly into 2nd!

    11 days ago

    Dailly into 2nd - but he's still 8 secs off Rude's time.

  • Leigh Johnson into 2nd!

    11 days ago

    Leigh into 2nd place behind Rude - 14 secs back. The Pole rider has been steadily gaining ground all season - the Pole rider from the UK started this race ranked 16th in the overall

  • Hill timing update

    11 days ago

    We're hearing that Sam Hill was late to the start of stage 2 - if that's confirmed he'll be looking at a time penalty.

  • Shawn Neer

    11 days ago

    Rude's team mate Neer also posts a great time - into 5th. And if you want an insight into Neer's music taste make sure you check out his Smith Rider Radio playlist on the EWS spotify channel!

  • Richie Rude

    11 days ago

    Rude says this venue reminds him of the classic French style enduro - and fellow American Marco Osborne called stage 2 "real mountain biking"

  • Women on 2

    This savage stage benefits from chairlift access, and the women are already dropping in. Once again it's 21 year old Richter who leads - this time by an unbelievable 48 seconds!

  • Stage 2

    11 days ago

    Stage 2 here is Les Orres is a beast. At over 5km long and with more than 1000m of descending she's arguably the most physical stage of the season

    11 days ago

    And while we wait for the top 30 men to drop in - check out how the top 3 ranked men in the series looked during practice...



  • Top 30 men

    11 days ago

    The top 30 men are about to drop into stage 1. It's currently Hugo Pigeon who leads, with Romain Paulhan less than a second back. Keep an eye out for Paulhan this weekend - he's only raced a couple of EWS, but he placed top 20 in both of them

  • Raphaela Richter

    11 days ago

    21 year old Richter hasn't raced an EWS since Millau back in 2017 - and she's just gone 2nd on stage 1. She is definitely one to watch this race - not sure anyone saw her as much of a threat coming into this race. She showed us!

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins 1!

    11 days ago

    Yes she can! Isa wins stage 1, Richter 4 secs back in 2nd and ALN 11 secs back in 3rd place. Could Richter be the rider to bring it to Isabeau this race?!

  • Isabeau Courdurier

    11 days ago

    Only Isabeau can challenge Richter's time now - can she do it?!

  • Andreane Lanthier Nadeau

    11 days ago

    ALN comes through 2nd - but still 6 secs back on Richter!

  • Raphaela Richter leading 1!

    11 days ago

    Young German rider Richter is currently leading stage 1! The trainee optician hasn't raced in an EWS for a year or two and she's scalped the likes of Winton and Miller. That's an amazing time from her!

  • Instagram

    11 days ago

    We should have the women's stage 1 results any minute - but if you can't wait then head over to our roving reporter in the field, injured Ibis rider Bex Baraona who has taken over our Insta stories for the weekend. Gowann Girl!

  • Flo the favourite

    11 days ago

    The French crowd are rooting for Nicolai and we wouldn't bet against him either - Les Orres is a very well known venue in France. In fact all the way back in 2005 and the very first French Enduro Series, Les Orres hosted a round. Flo will know exactly how to tackle these trails and we're expecting to see another podium finish for the Canyon rider

  • Florian Nicolai

    11 days ago

    Series leader Florian Nicolai will be the last man off the start today - he's 180 points ahead of Sam Hill in the rankings, with Kiwi Eddie Masters in 3rd. Eddie was due to race the DH World Cup in Andorra this weekend, but after his strong 4th place finish in Italy last week he opted to defend his position here instead

  • Pedro Burns taking cover

    11 days ago

    It's going to be another scorching weekend of racing here in France - even Chilean Pedro Burns is taking cover as he waits to get on the lift

  • All women on course now

    11 days ago

    That's the women off on the chairlifts to stage 1 now, and it's the turn of the top 30 men to get in line now.

  • Isabeau Courdurier

    11 days ago

    Isabeau is of course the favourite here in her native France - and judging by how relaxed she looks in the paddock right now, we'd say she fancies her chances too

  • Noga Korem ill

    11 days ago

    Now Noga tells us that's she not been feeling very well the last few days, but she's at the start line now and still planning to race.

  • Noga Korem ill

    11 days ago

  • Isabeau, Noga

    11 days ago

    And here's how those 3 looked in practice earlier



  • Series Rankings

    11 days ago

    As we enter the last half of the season, it's still Isabeau Courdurier who is out front and leading the women's standings on maximum points - having won every race and also picking up a 40 point boost at each round for winning every Queen Stage as well. Sitting behind her in the points table is Noga Korem in 2nd, with Morgane Charre back in 3rd

  • Today's schedule

    11 days ago

    It's a late start for the pros here in France - the top women are only just collecting their timing chips now, so we won't see any results in from them for roughly another 30 mins

  • Stage 1

    11 days ago

    First up today is stage 1, which is just a short chairlift ride from the pits in Les Orres. At just over 3km long it's the second shortest stage of the day - but it certainly won't be easy. Rocky, loose and fast, it's going to be quite the wake up call for riders who are already tired after 2 days in the saddle for practice.

  • Today's race

    11 days ago

    Today's race is big - really, really big. There's 4 stages in total that includes some lift access, but that descripion doesn't really do justice to what's involved. In all riders will take on 33km, over 2500m of descent and just shy of 800m of climbing

  • Welcome to Les Orres!

    11 days ago

    Welcome to round 5 of the 2019 Series in beautiful Les Orres, France! We have an absolutely huge 2 days of racing coming up, so we've called in the big guns to show us what lies in store - Anne Caroline Chausson and Tracy Moseley! This pair of absolute legends put Ric McLaughlin through his paces earlier this week and here's the result...
