    And so now all eyes turn to the top 30 men, who should be dropping in now

  • What a race!

    6 months ago

    Fantastic racing from the women today - it really came down to the wire, but what a comeback from Isabeau after that 7th place finish on stage 3. This is her second EWS win - she won Tasmania in 2017. A great confidence boost for her as the series heads to tasi next week

    1 Isabeau Courdurier
    2 Morgane Charre
    3 Bex Baraona

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins!

    6 months ago

    Isabeau wins the stage and the race!!

  • And fast forward 2 years...

    6 months ago

    and look at her now!

  • Isabeau

    6 months ago

    Great to see Isabeau doing so well in Roto - last time she was here in 2017 she had to withdraw from the race due to illness - that was her pushing her bike through the mud to the pits

  • Women next

    6 months ago

    Next to race down stage 5 into the crowds at Skyline will be the women. Isabeau comes into the stage with a 5 second lead over Morgane Charre and Bex Baraona who are 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Less than a second separates Charre and Baraona - it all comes down to this stage!

  • Blenki!

    6 months ago

    Blenki leads stage 5 - Keegan is less than half a second back! Matt Stuttard is in 3rd - and just one second separates all three!

  • Wright

    6 months ago

    Coming into this stage Keegan Wright was placed 2nd in the overall - he's on track now, can he put down a time fast enough to hold off the top 30 ranked riders who are yet to come? We wouldn't bet against it

  • Cody!

    6 months ago

    And Cody Kelley rides through the finish into 5th - he's on for a really good result this weekend

  • Blenki now leads 5!

    6 months ago

    And Elliot Heap into 2nd! Lucas drops to 3rd

  • Lucas!

    6 months ago

    Cole goes faster - he's another Kiwi having a great race!

  • Connor Fearon

    6 months ago

    Kona rider Connor is leading stage 5 currently - but in a few mins time Keegan Wright will appear - he's been smashing it all race and we want to see if he'll put in another blistering time

  • 6 months ago

    That's the men out with the top 30 on stage 5 - the last of the day - now

  • Thank you Roto!

    6 months ago

    Big shout to the crowds in Rotorua - and especially to the hardy souls that braved Brett Tippie's Crankworx Heckler Bus!

  • U21 Men

    6 months ago

    The U21 men are home and it's NZ's own Brady Stone who wins on home soil! Commencal's newest team member Antoine Vidal is 2nd and Max Hartenstern 3rd. Some very fast times from those guys today.

  • Stage 5

    6 months ago

    And after that downhill world cup win in La Bresse last year, we all know Maes is pretty handy on a dh course - and that's exactly what we have coming up for stage 5. We need to check with the boss - but we're not sure if any man has ever had total stage domination like this at one of our races before?!

  • Maes

    6 months ago

    Martin Maes is way out front in the men's race with just one stage to go. He's 20 seconds up on Keegan Wright in 2nd and Florian Nicolai is 20 seconds back again in 3rd.

  • Women's overall

    6 months ago

    The racing in the women's category is crazy tight! With just one stage left in the race Isabeau Courdurier is in the lead - but just 5 seconds back is Morgane Charre in 2nd. And less than half a second back is Bex Baraona in 3rd! Noga Korem is in 4th and Becky Cook is on course for her best EWS finish to date sitting in 5th

  • Master Women

    6 months ago

    Louise Paulin takes a clean sweep of the stages to win Master Women, Renee Wilson is 2nd and 2017 Roto winner Melanie Blomfield is 3rd

  • Master Men

    6 months ago

    The Master Men are also done, and Karim Amour wins! Michael Broderick in 2nd and Javier Santiago in 3rd

  • U21 Women

    6 months ago

    Meanwhile the U21 women are home and Fenella Harris takes the win!

  • Just one stage left

    6 months ago

    There's just 1 stage left in this race - and it's a good one! Stage 5 is on the Skyline DH track - it starts out wide open and flat and on the downhill course. The track then plunges into the forest again and onto freshly cut track. While there's nothing too hard, if you lose speed it's tough going. After that, the trail joins into the Skyline Bike Park trails where the berms and jumps will mean that the riders will finish with big smiles on their faces and no doubt turn on the style for the crowds

  • 6 months ago

    Wins stage 4!

  • Just Sam left

    6 months ago

    There's only Hill left out on track - can he claw back a stage win from Martin?

  • Maes!

    6 months ago

    And now Maes into the lead!

  • Gauvin sitting 3rd

    6 months ago

    Great race from Remi Gauvin today - but team mate Melamed comes through faster and goes into 2nd!!

  • Nearly...

    6 months ago

    The stage 4 times are coming in thick and fast now - we should see the top 5 men come through very soon!

  • Wyn!

    6 months ago

    Wyn comes through stage 4 in 3rd! Keegan still leads and Cole Lucas 2nd

  • Top 30 men on course now

    6 months ago

    But so far none of them are troubling the time set by Keegan Wright - he's on fire today!

  • Men up next

    6 months ago

    Up next are the top 30 men. They are all going to be charging in order to gain those valuable extra points - can race leader Maes hold them off? Or is he going to go all in? We bet the latter - he's yet to win the championship title and we know he's gunning for it

  • Isabeau leads the race again!

    6 months ago

    That stage 4 win puts Isabeau back in the lead in the overall - Morgane Charre drops to 2nd and is 5 secs back. But Bex Baraona is just half a second back on her in third. One stage to go and the racing is getting tight!

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins 4!

    6 months ago

    Isabeau takes the win on 4 by 3 seconds, ahead of Becky Cook and Noga Korem. Stage 4 is the Queen's stage so that extra points boost has just kick started Isabeau's championship bid very nicely indeed

  • Becky Cooke!

    6 months ago

    Becky goes faster- leads stage 4 by six secs!

  • ALN leads stage 3!

    6 months ago

    Charre sits behind her in 2nd - what can the top 5 women do now? We'll find out soon!

  • Martin Maes!

    6 months ago

    And here's race leader Martin Maes hitting up stage 1 earlier today!


  • Men on 4

    6 months ago

    Keegan Wright is leading stage 4 - he is having the race of his life! (Although the top 30 men are still to start it)

  • Louise Paulin

    6 months ago

    Louise Paulin is still leading the Master Women - she is a serious contender for the overall in her category this year

  • Master Men

    6 months ago

    In the Master Men it is (of course) Karim Amour who wins that all important Queen Stage! He now leads the overall by 24 secs! Michael Brocderick in 2nd and Jeffrey Beeston in 3rd

  • Stage 4 (Kataore)

    6 months ago

    The stage starts off with flowing pedally sections and just gets tougher and tougher. As the track gets steeper, the roots get bigger and the technical sections run together. This will test the concentration, fitness, strength and technique of everyone - and there's a lot riding on it so expect some very exciting racing!

  • Stage 4 - Queen's Stage

    6 months ago

    Introduced this year, one Special Stage per EWS event will be nominated as the Queen Stage. The winner (per category) of the Queen Stage will be awarded bonus EWS series points. The points are as follows Men: 40 Point Bonus, Women: 40 Point Bonus U21/Master Men: 30 Point Bonus U21/Master Women: 15 Points Bonus.

    The aim of the Queen stage is to provide a target for riders who need extra series points, and to provide an exciting focus on the longest, hardest or crux stage of every race. Expect people to be going hard on this next stage to earn those all important series points!

  • Queen's Stage

    6 months ago

    Next up is the big one - stage 4 is the Queen's Stage.

  • Hill

    6 months ago

    It's not a good day at the office for Sam Hill, he's dropped to 11th place and is 38 seconds behind Maes.

  • Men's overall

    6 months ago

    So after 3 stages, the men's overall looks like this:
    1 Martin Maes
    2 Keegan Wright
    3 Florian Nicolai

  • Maes wins stage 3!

    6 months ago

    Martin Maes wins stage 3 and leads the race!

  • Stage 3 remains a mystery

    6 months ago

    For now at least! There was an issue with cell service in the forest, so as soon as we get the timing data from Florian, Sam and Martin we'll be able to give you an update on who won stage 3 and how the overall standings are looking

  • And we wait

    6 months ago

    The top 3 men - Hill, Maes, Nicolai are all still to post times on stage 3 - can they knock Keegan off the top spot?

  • Stage 3 (for now)

    6 months ago

    Stage 3 is currently:
    1 keegan Wright
    2 Joe Nation
    3 Remi Gauvin

  • Borges 11th

    6 months ago

    Jose comes through stage 3 in 11th place - that's go to cost him dearly in the overall - he was sitting in 2nd coming into this stage

  • Jesse Melamed into 6th

    6 months ago

    Jesse through safely and goes into 6th, and team mate Gauvin into 3rd

  • Top 10 left

    6 months ago

    There's some big hitters through stage 3 now - and so far none of them can touch Wright's time!

  • Joe Nation

    6 months ago

    Joe posts a good time - but it's still 8 seconds behind fellow Kiwi Keegan!

  • Top 30 men on course

    6 months ago

    That's the top 30 men on stage 3 - can anyone knock Keegan Wright off the top spot? If anyone can it is race leader Martin Maes - and he should be down any minute!

  • Wow!

    6 months ago

    The women's race is wild - what a start to the season! Cray to see Isa slip from the lead back to third place - we're trying to find out if she had a problem on stage 3. It's very uncharacteristic for her to finish 7th on a stage

  • Morgane Charre now leads!

    6 months ago

    Morgane Charre is now leading this race! She's just a second ahead of Bex Baraona and Isabeau drops back to 3rd, 8 seconds back

  • stage 3 women

    6 months ago

    1 Morgane Charre
    2 Bex Baraona
    3 Noga Korem

  • Isabeau goes 7th!

    6 months ago

  • Charre leads 3!

    6 months ago

    Morgane Charre is on fire today - she leads stage 3!

  • Ella

    6 months ago

    And first to cross the line will be Ella Conolly. The young Scottish rider has moved up from the U21 category this year. She scored a perfect season last year - winning every single race and being awarded the U21 champs title. She is definitely a star of the future

  • Women

    6 months ago

    But first up it's women who will drop into stage 3

  • stage 3 currently

    6 months ago

    Top 3 on stage 3 is currently: 1 Keegan Wright, 2 Daniel Self, 3 Cole Lucas
    But the top 30 men are still to come through

  • Wright

    6 months ago

    Keegan Wright is now leading stage 3! BY 12 WHOLE SECONDS!

  • Dailly crashes on 3!

    6 months ago

    We hear Adrien crashed on stage 3! He's up and back on the bike but it's cost him a lot of time

  • Dailly

    6 months ago

    And if you're wondering why Dailly isn't in the top 30, it's because he missed the las five rounds of 2018 after he badly injured his elbow on a training ride. He's had surgery and this is his first race back, but we know he crashed in practice yesterday and is feeling pretty beaten up

  • Stage 3

    6 months ago

    That's the men out with the top 30 starting to drop into stage 3 now

  • Course preview

    6 months ago

    The men and women's categories are on their way to stage 3 now, we'll be back in 30 to bring you more action. In the meantime, here's what the riders are up against today

  • Hill

  • Hill

    6 months ago

    Hill finished stage 2 in 29th, which drops him back into 8th position in the overall with 16 seconds to find and 3 stages to do it in

    6 months ago

    Maes wins the stage and leads the race!

  • Maes!

    6 months ago

    Maes into the lead - where's Sam?

  • Wright

    6 months ago

    Keegan Wright's time has held so far - can Martin or Sam knock him off the top?

  • Callaghan

    6 months ago

    Greg comes through in 6th - just a few riders left after him

  • Gauvin into 4th

    6 months ago

    Remi goes into 4th - not many riders left to come now!

  • Wallner!

    6 months ago

    Robin Wallner of Ibis goes into second on stage 2!

  • Eddie Masters

    6 months ago

    Wyn's brother Eddie was also on the podium here in 2017, but he's currently lying in 12th on stage 2,

  • Wyn

    6 months ago

    Wyn is sitting 4th on stage 2 right now - he won the event in crazy wet conditions last time the series visited - maybe the dust doesn't suit him -he's got a fair fight on his hands if we wants to be on the podium this time around

  • Iago!

    6 months ago

    Great stage 2 from Iago - he goes into 2nd behind Keegan Wright! Can anyone knock Kiwi Keegan off the stage 2 hot seat?

  • look at those times!

    6 months ago

    Less than half a second separate Bex in 2nd and Morgane in 3rd!

  • Women's overall

    6 months ago

    In the women's overall Isabeau extends her lead to 5 seconds over Bex Baraona in 2nd and Morgane Charre drops to third - but

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins 2!

    6 months ago

  • Winton

    Noga through into 2nd! The top 3 could all be about to change though...

    6 months ago

    Bex goes faster! Charre into 2nd and Becky Cook into 3rd!

  • Top women on stage 2!

    6 months ago

    That's the fast women on stage 2 now, and it's Morgan Charre out front! Miranda Miller is 5 secs back in 2nd and Rae Morrison in 3rd - but the top 10 women are on their way to try and change that!

  • We're back!

    6 months ago

    And in another display of Kiwi power, it's Keegan Wright who is leading stage 2! Fellow Kiwi Cole Lucas is in 2nd and the USA's Jubal Davis is in 3rd. But don't forget, the top 30 men have still to drop in to the stage

    6 months ago

    We're going to head out to find out what is happening in the field - but we'll be back in 30 mins with all the action from stage 2. In the meantime, check out what the stages look like courtesy of our course preview video


  • Woah!

    6 months ago

    Ladies and gentleman, we have a race right here! Less than three seconds separate the top 5 men and there is still four stages to go - Martin's lead of just over a second is by no means comfortable. And you know what that means? This race just got very, very exciting!

  • timing update

    3 Sam Blenkinsop

  • Wyn Masters into 9th

  • Next up - top 30 men

    6 months ago

    The final group to drop into stage 1 are the top 30 men - first man to come through should be Rotorua 2017 winner Wyn Masters

  • Women's race is ON!

  • Dailly

    6 months ago

    Adrien just told our man in the field Ric that his elbow is feeling good, but the Skyline stages are the hardest as the dirt is still loose so he can't prepare for impacts

  • Dailly finishes stage 2!

    6 months ago

    Adrien finishes stage 2 and currently sits 7th. It's his first race back since a horrendous elbow injury saw him out of action for 5 of last year's 8 races

  • Matt Walker stage 2

    6 months ago

    Matt walker is through stage 2 and currently sitting 2nd! He is riding for Pivot this year - he was 2nd overall in Rotorua when the EWS was last here in 2017. Can he do the same this year?!

  • Tandem finishes stage 2!

    6 months ago

    Our fearless tandem warriors Rose and Jackson Green are safely through stage 2 - absolute legends!

  • Dust

    6 months ago

    The rain has helped dampen down the dust, but according to Specialized's latest signing at the bottom of stage 1: "The rain has cut the dust down, but made the dirt all the same colour so you can't see the holes."

  • Elliott Heap

    6 months ago

    Elliot Heap is sitting 9th right now on stage 1 - another rider to keep an eye on this year. He is reigning U21 Champ, but this year he has moved into the men's category. He's Sam Hill's team mate and we think he has the potential to really shake up the top 10 this year

  • Men on 1

    6 months ago

    We're getting towards the sharp end of the men's field now and it's Cole Lucas who currently leads. Fellow Kiwi Blenki is just behind by a second and Killian Bron sits third. But there are still a lot of men to drop in - but we predict from those times we have so far this race is going to be TIGHT!

  • Paulin wins stage 1 in Masters

    6 months ago

    Louise Paulin has won stage 1 in Master Women! Originally from Sweden, she now lives in Finale, Italy and will be doing the full season this year. It's off to a great start - she leads the race by 18 seconds. Kiwi Renee Wilson is in 2nd and Micheele Gane of Aus in 3rd.

  • Stage 1

    6 months ago

    Debt Collector | Tax Man
    Stage 1 takes place at Skyline. It is a loose and loamy traversing track that heads across the top of Skyline with some off-camber sections and then back into into the trees where it gets steeper, with some line options, drops and technical turns and finishes on the pump track.

  • Men on stage 1 now

    6 months ago

    That's the men on stage 1 now - times are coming in thick and fast but it is Daniel Self who is currently in the lead

  • Antoine Vidal

    6 months ago

    Keep an eye our for Commencal's latest signing Antoine Vidal - he's just gone 5th in U21 Men on stage 1. He is the reigning U21 French enduro champ and we think he could do really well this season - having Cecile Ravanel as your team mate and mentor is a pretty great way to kick start a career

  • U21 Men

    6 months ago

    That is the U21 men through stage 1 now and Kiwi Brady Stone cleans up! he is 3 seconds up on Nathan Secondi of France and Max Hartenstern of Germany is 4 secs back in 3rd

  • Karim Amour leads race

    6 months ago

    So Amour now leads the race by 10 secs in the Master category - is he going to dominate again all season? We wouldn't bet against it!

  • Jeffrey Beeston

    6 months ago

    Beeston of Australia goes 2nd and Mathieu Tharis of France into 3rd. Chain Reaction Team Manager Nigel Page goes 4th - great to see him back between the tapes!

    6 months ago

    Reigning champ Karim Amour takes stage 1 in the Master category!

  • Morgane Jonnier now leads!

    The women are starting to drop into stage 1 and it's currently Asia Pacific Champ Rowena Fry who is in the lead!

  • New season - shiny new bikes!

    6 months ago

    We did not manage to get a bike check that tandem, but we did catch up with a bunch of pros to see what they will be aboard in 2019!


  • Tandem

    6 months ago

    Jackson and Rose Green post a respectable time of 6:57 on stage 1! They're guaranteed to win their category as the sole competitors - but fair play, it must be terrifying!

  • Double trouble

    6 months ago

    In an EWS first (and quite possibly last too) - there is a tandem racing today! And news just in that they's made it safely through stage 1 - legends!

  • Dust!

    And just to prove the rain is a good thing, check out the trail conditions earlier in the week. EWS camera man having an awful day at the office

    The EWS races are pre-qualification only this year - so let me introduce the EWS100. The EWS100 is for anyone who wants to race the entire EWS course - exactly the same as the pros - but doesn't have the points yet. And the best bit? You can earn EWS ranking points in the process and it's open to everyone on a first come, first serve basis

    6 months ago

    There are riders on course now and the live timing will start to populate very soon. The Master men will be up first and reigning champ Karim Amour is the hot favourite once more - are there any Kiwis out there who can take him on?

  • A little rain...

    6 months ago

    There’s a bit of drizzle around, but if you’ve seen any of the photos from practice then you’ll know how dusty the trails are and a bit of rain is actually very welcome. Although not the deluge racers were faced with when the series last visited here in 2017!
