Live Race Updates

The race feed will self-refresh and update each time there are new feed items in the timeline.

  • Dailly

    14 seconds ago

    Adrien is fully in charge of this race now - with a 21 second lead going into the final stage of the day this race is his to lose. Impressive riding from Jack Moir in 2nd too - could this be his first trip to the EWS podium?

  • Men's overall after 4 stages

    1 minute ago

    So after 4 stages the men's overall now looks like this;

    1. Adrien Dailly
    2. Jack Moir
    3. Florian Nicolai
    4. Dimitri Tordo
    5. Eddie Masters

  • Melamed goes 8th

    2 minutes ago

    which means Dailly wins the stage! Masters goes 2nd and Miquel 3rd. So Adrien Dailly is still leading this race with one stage to go!

  • Galy goes 7th

    3 minutes ago

    Only Jesse left on course now

  • Galy and Melamed

    4 minutes ago

    Just Theo and Jesse left to come

  • Miquel

    5 minutes ago

    Kevin Miquel comes through in 3rd

  • Dailly goes faster!

    6 minutes ago

    Race leader Dailly is faster - now leads the stage by 5 seconds with just a couple of riders left on course

  • Moir into 2nd

    6 minutes ago

    Jack comes in just slower than Eddie and into 2nd place

  • Just ten riders left

    8 minutes ago

    Only the top 10 men are still left to come through stage 4 - and of course we're sadly missing both Wallner and Maes after their crashes earlier today

  • Eddie!

    9 minutes ago

    Eddie Masters into the lead!

  • Louis Jeandel

    10 minutes ago

    Another fast Frenchman Jeandel is now in the lead on stage 4!

  • Callaghan

    12 minutes ago

    Greg comes through clean and lies 2nd currently on stage 4

  • Damien Oton!

    12 minutes ago

    Oton goes into the lead on stage 4! We know he was running dry tyres this morning and struggling - lookd like he's back on form!

  • Rhys Verner

    14 minutes ago

    Verner won Stage 3 but has just crossed the stage 4 finish line in 7th - and with plenty of racers still on stage that's going to put his current overall position of 5th in doubt

  • Jesse Melamed

    17 minutes ago

    Melamed will be the last man down stage 4 as the top seeded rider after that win in Zermatt last month and he's got work to do if he wants to be back on that podium. Despite winning stage 2 he's back in 12th place in the overall and 15 seconds back on Dailly - but if you've ever seen Jesse ride, you'll know he's got it in him to do just that

  • Dailly

    21 minutes ago

    Dailly comes into stage 4 with a 12 second lead in the overall and chasing him down are Canyon's new signing Aussie rider Jack Moir in 2nd and Trek racer Florian Nicolai

  • Pugin leads the race!

    26 minutes ago

    So with just one stage left in this race Melanie Pugin will head to stage 5 with a very comfortable 12 second lead over Courdurier. It looks like Courdurier's year long winning streak may be about to come to an end - but it's not over until a small Italian man called Enrico cries at the finish line - and we know Isabeau will be pushing hard despite that ankle injury to claw back time

  • Courdurier

    28 minutes ago

    Isabeau goes 2nd on stage 4 - just half a second back! Pugin is going to maintain that overall lead going into the last stage of the race!

  • Andreane Lanthier Nadeau

    30 minutes ago

    ALN comes through stage 4 in 3rd place - just half a point between Estelle Charles who's in 2nd

  • The Frenchies

    31 minutes ago

    The French are absolutely dominating this race - Dailly, Pugin, Charre, Courdurier, Nicolai all in contention for the podiums!

  • Women on stage 4 now

    33 minutes ago

    And once again it's Pugin who is leading the stage! But there's still women on course so race leader Pugin hasn't got this sewn up just yet

  • Back at 14:45 CET//13:45 GMT

    1 hour ago

    We'll be back shortly to bring you the stage 4 action, but in the meantime check out what went down at the last EWS-E of the year yesterday



  • Antoine does it!

    1 hour ago

    Vidal wins stage 4! But check out who's behind him - young Jamie Edmondson from the Uk takes 2nd on stage 4. So Antoine Vidal leads the race with one stage to go, Brady Stone is in 2nd and Edmondson moves up into 3rd

  • U21 Men

    1 hour ago

    The U21 Men are on stage 4 now and we'r keen to see if Commencal's Antoine Vidal can maintain that lead. This promising young French rider has also been dabbling in downhill - he was 2nd in the juniors at the UCI Downhill World Champs in Mont Saint-Anne last year

  • Harnden

    1 hour ago

    Hattie Harnden has also maintained her lead in the U21 women after 4 stages - she's 50 seconds up on Sophie Riva and on course for another EWS victory

  • Ravanel leads Masters

    1 hour ago

    Cedric Ravanel is still leading the Master Men race after 4 stages - he'll drop into the final stage of the day with a 5 second lead over Karim Amour who is in 2nd and Italian racer Bruno Zanchi is in 3rd

  • Shakedown

    1 hour ago

    If you want to get an idea about how the riders were feeling ahead of today's race and what they make of new venue Pietra, then make sure you check out our Shakedown video



  • Melamed

    1 hour ago

    Melamed finishes in 35th on stage 3 today - dropping him one place in the overall into 12th, but with 15 seconds to catch up on race leader Dailly and only 2 stages left to do it in

  • Men's overall

    1 hour ago

    So after 3 stages, then's overall now looks like this;

    1. Adrien Dailly
    2. Jack Moir
    3. Florian Nicolai
    4. Dimitri Tordo
    5. Rhys Verner

  • Maes is out

    1 hour ago

    Martin crashes on stage 3 and sounds like he's out the race with a cut to his hand

  • Maes

    1 hour ago

    WE can't see a time for Maes on stage 3? We'll try and find out what's happened. But in the meantime - Adrien Dailly still leads the race!

  • Verner gets his first win

    1 hour ago

    Rhys wins stage 3 - way to make your first EWS win the Queen Stage! And in the overall...

  • Dailly!

    1 hour ago

    Race leader Dally crosses the Queen Stage finish in 3rd - will this have cost him the overall lead?

  • Moir!

    1 hour ago

    Jack Moir into 2nd place on stage 3 - 3 secs back on verner

  • Masters goes 23rd

    1 hour ago

    Masters into 23rd - that's got to drop him in the overall

  • Eddie Masters

    1 hour ago

    Eddie Masters should be next across the line - he was sitting in 4th coming into this stage

  • Verner

    1 hour ago

    Verner's time is good - with only l15 men left on course he's seen off big names

  • Cole Lucas

    2 hours ago

    Ibis' latest signing Cole Lucas comes through stage 3 and into 14th

  • Rhys Verner!

    2 hours ago

    Kona rider Rhys goes into the lead on stage 3 - 4 seconds clear of Raimondi's time

  • Matteo Raimondi

    2 hours ago

    Italian rider Matteo is enjoying the early lead on stage 3 - but the sharp end of the field are getting ready to drop in and we hear the rain is getting heavier. And you know which two riders have won EWS races in really awful weather? Bot Jesse Melamed (Zermatt) and Adrien Dailly (Tasmania) - things are about to get very interesting indeed

  • Men on 3

    2 hours ago

    The top 30 men are about to drop into stage 3 and we hear it's still raining up top, but it's also pretty warm. If the rain keeps coming down like it is we don't think it'll make too much difference to the conditions

  • Pugin leads the race!

    2 hours ago

    That Queen stage win has propelled Pugin into the lead! She's put 12 seconds between her and Courdurier who has dropped into second place - Morgane Charre is 12 seconds back in 3rd!

  • Pugin wins the Queens stage!

    2 hours ago

    Ougin wins stage - Isabeau goes 4th!

  • Noga Korem

    2 hours ago

    Noga comes through the stage in 4th, Charre goes into 2nd!

  • Queen Stage

    2 hours ago

    The women are on stage 3 now - the longest in the race - and it's the Queen Stage. Pugin is traight in with the early lead - a full 21 seconds up on Finale local Louise Paulin in 2nd!

  • And here comes the rain

    2 hours ago

    The rain has started to fall in Pietra, which means the top men and women will be hitting the all important Queen stage in the wet - will this mix things up in the results?

  • U21 Men

    2 hours ago

    There's a tight race forming in he U21 men - Commencal's Antoine Vidal leads the race after 3 stages, but it was Global Theory's Brady Stone who won the Queen Stage and now lies in 2nd place - just 5 seconds back on Vidal with 2 stages to go. Vidal's team mate Alexis Icardo is in 3rd

  • Master Men update

    2 hours ago

    The Masters are through the Queen Stage, and after those 3 stages it's Cedric Ravanel who leads! Karim Amour is 7 seconds back in 2nd place and Bruno Zanchi lies 3rd

  • Robin Wallner update

    2 hours ago

    Just a quick update on that Robin Wallner crash on stage 2 we mentioned - as far as we know he's ok but has retired from the race

  • Here comes the Queen Stage

    2 hours ago

    And if you want to know what it's going to look like - check out the course preview video here!



  • Melamed

    3 hours ago

    Melamed had a shocker on stage 1, but that win on stage 2 has seen him jump 15 places and is now sitting in 11th but still 18 seconds back on race leader Dailly. Still 3 stages to go though!

  • Overall after 2 stages

    3 hours ago

    So after 2 stages the men's overall now looks like this;

    1. Adrien Dailly
    2. Martin Maes
    3. Jack Moir
    4. Eddie Masters
    5. Florian Nicolai

  • Melamed wins 2!

    3 hours ago

    Jesse wins stage 2! Dailly 2nd and Maes 3rd!

  • Wallner crash

    3 hours ago

    We're hearing Robin Wallner has had a crash on stage 2 - more info on that as we get it

  • Dailly leads

    3 hours ago

    Adrien goes faster - leads the stage with Moir in 2nd!

  • Men on stage 2

    3 hours ago

    The top men are on stage 2 now and once again it's Louis Jeandel with the early lead. Eddie Masters is in 2nd and Nathan Secondi 3rd. This stage is still live though - can race leader Dailly make it 2 for 2?

  • Stage 2

    3 hours ago

    The women have just come through stage 2 and Isabeau has won it! She's extended her lead over Melanie Pugin in the overall too. So after 2 stages the overall looks like this;

    1. Isabeau Courdurier
    2. Melanie Pugin
    3. Morgane Charre
    4. Morgane Jonnier
    5. Estelle Charles

  • Jesse goes 26th!

    3 hours ago

    Jesse goes 26th! So Dailly win the stage, Maes in 2nd and Jack Moir in 3rd!

  • Maes into 2nd!

    3 hours ago

    Martin goes 2nd -just Jesse's time to come now!

  • Maes and Melamed on course

    3 hours ago

    If anyone can uneat Dailly from the lead we suspect it will be Martin or Jesse and both are on course now!

  • Now Dailly!

    3 hours ago

    Adrien goes faster again and leads stage 1!

  • Moir!!

    3 hours ago

    Jack Moir into the lead on 1!

  • Wallner

    3 hours ago

    Wallner was on the podium in Zermatt, but he's just come through stage 1 in 25th

  • Eddie leads 1

    3 hours ago

    Eddie Masters is now leading stage 1 by just over 1 second - can Melamed top that?

  • Masters!

    3 hours ago

    Eddie goes faster!!

  • Louis Jeandel into 2nd

    3 hours ago

    That's another French rider Jeandel into the top 3 and sitting in 2nd currently

  • Deniaud

    3 hours ago

    Youn's time is looking good - it's standing up to some big names like Oton, Callaghan etc

  • Jesse Melamed

    3 hours ago

    Zermatt winner Melamed will be the last man down the hill. He won the last round in horrendous conditions so we know this Canadian rider won't be troubled by that rain last night in the slightest

  • Youn Deniaud

    3 hours ago

    Deniaud goes faster! It's another French rider leading the score board

  • Stage 1 times

    3 hours ago

    The first of the top 30 men's stage 1 times are coming in now and no one has been able to beat Secondi yet - Charles Murray lies 2nd and Rhys Verner 3rd - but the big hitters have still to drop in

  • Mark Scott

    3 hours ago

    Scottish rider Mark was the first of the top 30 men to leave the start and is on course now - we know he's one of the many riders who will have had a sigh of relief when that rain came in last night - these conditions will suit him a lot better now

  • Melanie Pugin crashed

    3 hours ago

    Some interesting news in from the course - Pugin actually had a crash on stage 1 - now that will have cost her time. And as she's only 2 seconds back on race leader Isabeau, we expect there may be an intense battle about to go down between these two today

  • Nathan Secondi early lead on 1

    3 hours ago

    It's another French rider leading stage 1 - Nathan Secondi - but the top 30 men are about to drop in so that will likely change very soon

  • Frenchies on fire!

    3 hours ago

    Those French are FAST! That's an all French top 5 on stage 1 - some of the big hitters we'd expect to see higher in the rankings like Miranda Miller and Noga Korem are outside the top 10 - but there's still four stages to go and it's still all to play for

  • Stage 1 women

    3 hours ago

    1. Isabeau Courdurier
    2. Melanie Pugin
    3. Morgane Charre
    4. Estelle Charles
    5. Morgane Jonnier

  • Yes she can!

    3 hours ago

    Isabeau wins stage 1! Amazing effort given those torn ankle ligaments!

  • Charre into 2nd

    3 hours ago

    Morgane goes into 2nd - it's a French top 3 currently - can Isabeau get in there too?

  • Pugin's time

    3 hours ago

    Melanie's time is good - she's a full 10 seconds clear of Estelle Charles in 2nd! Can Isabeau go faster?

  • Pugin!

    3 hours ago

    Pugin goes faster on stage 1 and into the lead! Pugin absolutely destroyed the field in Zermatt last month - in the e-bike race! But she's opted to race the EWS at this round instead - perhaps buoyed by her win at the French national champs last weekend where she relegated Morgane Charre

  • Raphaela Richter

    3 hours ago

    German rider Richter has taken the early lead in the women's race on stage 1. This young rider took a few years out from EWS but came back with a bang last season when she scored a podium finish in both Les Orres and Zermatt last year

  • Isabeau

    4 hours ago

    And speaking of Isabeau? Do you know the last time Courdurier wasn't on the top step of an EWS podium? All the way back in 2018! She had a perfect season in 2019 and won the first race of 2020 last month, but she has a real fight on her hands today to maintain that record. She's got two torn ligaments in her ankle and is staring down the biggest EWS single day course in a long time - but we've seen her push through injury and illness before to score a win and we wouldn't bet against her doing the same again today. Good luck Isa!

  • Men on stage 1

    4 hours ago

    That's the sharp end of the men's field dropping into stage 1 now - last man (outside of the top 30) down will be Scotland's Lewis Buchanan. Then it's the turn of the women, last woman down will be top seeded rider Isabeau Courdurier, followed by the top 30 man. And last man down each of today's 5 stages will be Zermatt winner Jesse Melamed

  • Today's conditions

    4 hours ago

    So as we mentioned there was some rain overnight in Pietra, and whilst that's not always welcome before race day, in this case it is. The rain broke the heatwave and freshened things up, making for a much more pleasant riding experience for the racers. And the word from stages 1 and 2? hero dirt!

  • Today's course

    4 hours ago

    If you want a more detailed look at today's stages and some race analysis, make sure you check out the course preview we filmed earlier in the week



  • U21 Men

    4 hours ago

    And speaking of the U21 category, the U21 Men are just through stage 1 - and Antoine Vidal wins! He goes 2 seconds clear of Luke Meier Smith in 2nd place and Vidal's Commencal team mate Alexis Icardo goes 3rd.

    Interesting to note that the both the U21 race leaders are both being mentored by some titans of the sport - Harnden has Tracy Moseley in her corner whilst Vidal is under the watchful eye of Cecile Ravanel - way to learn from the best!

  • Harriet Harnden

    4 hours ago

    Also through the first stage of the day is U21 rider Harriet Harnden who won in Zermatt last month. She's won stage 1 and she's our tip to win here today too. This rising star on the Trek team is absolutely one to watch - she can turn her hand to any discipline, and crucially, win in them all too! After she races EWS here and in Finale next week she's headed off to race the final three Cross Country races of the year; Nove Mesto World Cup, Leogang World Champs and then Monte Tamaro for the European Champs. How's that for a schedule?!

  • Master Men

    4 hours ago

    And as always it was the Master Men who were first to head out this morning and it's some familar names who are topping the leader board after stage 1;

    1 - Karim Amour
    2 - Cedric Ravanel
    3 - Bruno Zanchi

  • Let's race!

    4 hours ago

    Good morning and welcome to Vittoria EWS Pietra Ligure! The stage is set for one huge day of racing in Italy - and we mean HUGE! Riders are heading out to race five stages today - and all that stands between them and glory is a mere 2000m of climbing and around 50km of pedalling. The good news is that overnight rain has really helped moderate the searing temperatures of the last week, and most riders seem pretty pleased about that

  • Welcome to Pietra!

    16 hours ago

    Welcome to Vittoria EWS Pietra Ligure, the penultimate race of the year! There is a big, big day of racing ahead of us and we can't wait to watch it unfold. Join us from 10:30am CET / 09:30am GMT on Sunday, and in the meantime here's a look at what the racers are up against...
