    4 months ago

    Looks like Isabeau's game plan paid off!



  • Conolly

    4 months ago

    And what a race from young privateer Ella Conolly! It's fitting she should stand here on the podium with Noga. Noga scored her first podium here as a privateer in 2017 when she took 3rd, and now she's passing on the baton to Ella. The future of women's racing is bright

  • What a race!

    4 months ago

    Once more this season the women display incredibly tight racing. Another stunning race from Isabeau - she's a force to be reckoned with. And great to see Noga back on the podium - she scored her first EWS top 3 here in 2017

    4 months ago

    Only Isabeau left to come now...

  • Noga!

    4 months ago

    Korem into 6th - she came into the stage in 2nd on the overall - this could cost her...

  • Miller

    4 months ago

  • Stage 8

    4 months ago

    Stage 8 is an extended version of stage 3 from yesterday, that will drop the riders directly back to the race village in Machico Marina. It's a long finish to the race - at 2.7km long those tired legs are going to be screaming as riders push for one last time this weekend



  • Sam Hill 6th

    4 months ago

    Hill is back in 6th - he's yet to show the same form he did last season to take the champ title. But with 5 races left in the series, only a fool would rule him out as a contender

  • Dailly

    4 months ago

    Adrien Dailly drops back into 4th - and just 4 seconds back is Eddie Masters in 5th. With one stage left in this race expect an epic battle between these 2

  • Martin wins!

    4 months ago

    Martin wins stage 7!!!

  • 4 months ago

    Jesse's fast but not enough to bump Borges off the top spot - Melamed sits 2nd

  • Borges

    4 months ago

    Jose's time on 7 is good - could this push him up in the overall? He's on course for his first EWS podium

  • Florian Nicolai finishes 7

    4 months ago

    and into 2nd!

  • Adrien Dailly

    4 months ago

    Dailly loses time on stage 7 - he's 14 secs back on Borges - will he lose place in overall?

  • Jose Borges finishes stage 7

    4 months ago

    And he takes the lead! The Portuguese rider is a full 12 seconds faster than Pigeon!

  • Pigeon

    4 months ago

    Hugo's time of 4:50 still holding on stage 7 - but can the top 30 go faster?!

  • Vidal wins U21!

    4 months ago

    The U21 men are home after all 8 stages and it's series leader Antoine Vidal who wins! Great day for Commencal - Vidal's team mate Cedric Ravanel won Master Men too! Brady Stone was 2nd and Duncan Nason of Yeti was 3rd to round out the U21 podium

  • Timing update

    4 months ago

    While we wait for the top 30 men on stage 7, here's a quick update on the women's overall. We have all their data now - and the overall has changed! Isabeau still leads, but Noga Korem is 2nd after a stage win on 4 and Ella Conolly drops back to 3rd after that dropped chain on stage 6 costs her time

  • Queen Stage

    4 months ago

    Stage 7 was designated the Queen stage because of it's technicality - it's over 2.20km long and it's got flat sections as well as steep, technical parts - really something to challenge every aspect of the rider's skills

  • stage 7

    4 months ago

    The Queen stage may have beautiful views - but the riders won't care. With extra series points up for grabs and 100km of pedalling in their legs after practice and racing, they just want to get through this

  • Hugo Pigeon

    4 months ago

    Hugo goes into the lead on stage 7!

  • Martin Maes general information

    4 months ago

    But we know Maes has this stage in his sights - can anyone stop him?!



  • Men on Queen stage now

    4 months ago

    The men are on stage 7 now - it's Madeira local Emanuel Pombo who leads currently

  • Isabeau

    4 months ago

    Isa has once again won the Queen stage and won the extra 40 points on offer. That means she's taken 3 out of 3 so far this season and (providing she wins the race) will pick up the max amount of points on offer. Can anyone stop her charge this season?

  • Isa wins 7!

    4 months ago

    Isabeau wins stage 7 - the Queen stage! ALN in 2nd and Noga Korem 3rd!

  • Andreane Lanthier Nadeau!

    4 months ago

    ALN goes faster! leads stage 7 by 9 seconds!!!

  • Ella Conolly 8 secs up on 7

  • Ella Conolly leads 7!

    4 months ago

    Ella Conolly leading stage 7! Can she pull back that dropped chain from stage 6 and get her first EWS elite podium?!

  • Melanie Pugin leads 7

    4 months ago

    Pugin is leading stage 7! Top 10 women still on course though

  • Cedric wins Masters!

    4 months ago

    Cedric Ravanel wins Masters! He beats Karim Amour by 18 seconds, James Hughes goes 3rd!

  • Stage 7

    4 months ago

    It's a long liaison to stage 7 - nearly 2 hours. And given how hot and sunny it is in Madeira today, that's going to be a slog. The images coming out of this race can make you forget just how physical it is - with eight stages and 60km of pedalling, this is no day out at the beach

  • Maes

    4 months ago

    One man we know is going to be giving his all on the Queen stage is race and series leader Martin Maes - here's what he said about it yesterday



  • Stage 7 - the Queen Stage!

    4 months ago

    And next up is the big one - stage 7 is the Queen stage, Boca do Risco. The most iconic trail on the island, this cliff top ridge line always features heavily in any coverage you see of the race here in Madeira. And here's why



  • Provisional overall

    4 months ago

    So the provisional overall after 6 stages is now
    1 Maes
    2 Dailly
    3 Borges
    4 Melamed
    5 E Masters

  • Jesse Melamed wins stage 6!

    4 months ago

    Jesse wins by less than a second! It's not going to trouble Martin's lead, but he's the first man this race to deny the GT racer a stage win

  • Melamed wins 6!

    4 months ago

    Jesse wins stage 6! Maes goes 2nd, Borges 3rd!

  • 4 months ago

    Jess goes faster again! Nearly 3 secs faster than Borges!

  • Stage 6 men

    4 months ago

    Borges leads stage 6 - Dailly is less than 1 second back and Hill is in 3rd. But Martin is still to come!

  • Jose Borges goes faster

    4 months ago

    he leads stage 6!

  • Adrien Dailly crash yesterday

    4 months ago

    That crash Adrien sustained on stage 3 yesterday doesn't seem to be slowing him down too much - he's got 6 stitches in his elbow but is currently leading stage 6!



  • Adrien Dailly finishes stage 6

    4 months ago

    ... in the lead! He goes 3 seconds faster than Leigh Johnson! Still top 20 men to come though

  • Stage 6

    4 months ago

    That's the top 30 men hitting stage 6 now. S6 - Quatro Estradas - starts with an easy and flowy gradient which can become
    physical, then half way down turns into a steep rooty and rocky former Portuguese National Downhill track.



  • Leigh Johnson leads 6

    4 months ago

    The men are on stage 6, and it's Pole rider Leigh Johnson who is leading the stage currently, with local hero Emanuel Pombo in 2nd and Orbea rider Vid Persak in 3rd

  • timing update

    4 months ago

    The women's overall sees Isabeau out front, but because of those missing times from 5 we can't call the rest yet. Will ella be able to hang onto 2nd?! Or will Morgane Charre take her spot?

  • Isabeau Courdurier wins 6!

    4 months ago

    Isabeau wins stage 6! Noga Korem goes 2nd and Morgane Charre 3rd! Ella back in 15th after that dropped chain puts her 22 seconds off Isa's stage time

  • Ella has a mechanical!

    4 months ago

    Poor Ella drops her chain on stage 6! The Scottish privateer was in 2nd - can she make up the time?!

  • Melamed!

    4 months ago

    It looks (provisionally) like Jesse Melamed may have won stage 5 - but until we get all the riders times we can't confirm it unfortunately. Jesse went from leading the race in Madeira in 2017 to utter heartbreak when he destroyed his back wheel. Is he about to make some better memories this time around?!

  • Patchy signal

    4 months ago

    The timing crew just let us know there are some signal issues up on stage 5, so we might not get everyone's times through right away. We might have to wait until the riders hit the next upload station before we can update you on their times. The suspense is killing us!

  • Thomas Lapeyrie!

    4 months ago

    The top 30 men are on stage 5 and Lapeyrie leads! Adrien went 1 second slower and Matt Stuttard is 7 secs back in 3rd!!

  • Stage 5

    4 months ago

    Up next for the pro men and women we have stage 5, Rat Boy. This trail was named after a video with Josh Bryceland for Santa Cruz Bicycles. It drops slightly North through a
    beautiful Pine forest, the shortest track of the race is fast and fun with some small berms and drops but also with some rocks and roots, demanding full concentration top to
    bottom.



  • timing update

    4 months ago

    The U21 Men are through stage 6 now and it's still Antoine Vidal in the lead. He's 13 seconds up on Brady Stone in 2nd and 19 seconds clear of Duncan Nason in 3rd. Just 2 stages left for them!

    4 months ago

    Isabeau goes less than half a second back and into 2nd! Rae in 3rd - all women within the same SECOND!

  • Ella wins 4!

    4 months ago

    She does it! Ella wins her first EWS stage on 4!

  • So tight!

    4 months ago

    The women's race is so close - just 5 secs separate current top 5 on stage 4!

  • Anita Gehrig

    4 months ago

  • Emanuel Pombo leading 4

  • Karim Amour wins 4

    4 months ago

    The first riders onto stage 4 this morning were the Master men - reigning champ Karim Amour took the win by 6 seconds - enough to put him into the lead ahead of Cedric Ravanel in the overall. But with less than half a second between them and four more stages to go, it could still go either way. James Hughes of the UK sits 16 seconds back in 3rd place

  • Stage 4

    4 months ago

    Located above the capital of Madeira, in the Ecological Park of Funchal. The top third is all machine built with big berms, jumps and rhythm sections, all overlooking the
    basin of Funchal. The bottom is all hand built where speed is the main ingredient. At just under 2km it's the second shortest stage of the day.



  • Welcome back!

    4 months ago

    Welcome back to EWS Madeira! We have five stages left in this race and what stages they are! First up today is none other than stage 4, Gamble. Created for Loic Bruni's segment in Steel City Media's Gamble movie, the riders are absolutely buzzing that they get to race this iconic stage.
