    We'll be back next weekend for round 5 - EWS Les Orres Coupe du Monde in France!

  • Quite a comeback from Rude...

    3 months ago

    At his first race back, Rude scores maximum points by taking the win and gaining those all important Queen Stage points

  • Men's overall

    3 months ago

    So the (provisional) results are;

    1 Richie Rude
    2 Sam Hill
    3 Florian Nicolai
    4 Eddie Masters
    5 Dimitri Tordo

  • Florian Nicolai goes 3rd on 5!

    3 months ago

    Which means Richie Rude wins the race!

  • Sam Hill goes 2nd!

    3 months ago

    He's just 3 seconds behind Richie - which means the only man capable of stopping Richie taking the win is Nicolai. Who took to the start of stage 5 with low pressure in his tyre...

  • weather

    3 months ago

    Riders returning to the paddock are all talking about the heat - it's stiflingly hot out there and plenty of riders are heading to the river to cool down

  • Masters!

    3 months ago

    Eddie into third - less than a second behind Dailly. It's getting tight at the top!

  • Dimitri Tordo

    3 months ago

    Nicolai's team mate Tordo comes through in 3rd - 13 secs back on Richie

  • Hill Vs Nicolai

    3 months ago

    Sam Hill and Florian Nicolai will enter this stage with less than half a second separating them - whoever goes faster on stage 5 will likely clinch 2nd position. Unless of course either of them can make up 18 seconds on Rude...

  • Adrien Dailly into 2nd!

    3 months ago

    He's into 2nd - but Richie still leads by 11 seconds. It's a big lead but the riders coming down are inching ever closer to his time

  • Mathew Stuttard into 2nd!

    3 months ago

    Matt Stuttard goes into 2nd! He's 14 secs back on Richie but that is a great time from him

  • Richie Rude leads 5!

    3 months ago

    Race leader Rude was the first of the top 30 men to make his way down stage 5 - and he currently leads by 19 seconds! Matt Walker is in 2nd and Charles Murray 3rd. Plenty of big hitters still to come though

  • Isabeau Courdurier

    3 months ago

    Another fantastic performance from Isabeau, who for the 4th time this season picks up maximum points - winning the race and the all important Queen stage. Can anyone stop her march to the title?!

  • Women's overall

    3 months ago

    So after all 5 of today's stages, the (provisional) results are;
    1 Isabeau Courdurier
    2 Andreane Lanthier Nadeau
    3 Noga Korem

    5 Morgane Charre

    3 months ago

    Isabeau Courdurier wins the stage and wins the race!

  • Melanie Pugin leads stage 5

    3 months ago

    Pugin leads stage 5 - and Ines Thoma is sitting in 2nd and five seconds back

  • Stage 5

    3 months ago

    Stage 5 is a monster - a beautiful monster - but a monster nonetheless. It's 6.5km long and will take the fastest riders around 13mins to complete. And the riders will be going all out - it's the Queen Stage where extra series points are up for grabs.

  • 3 months ago

    And this is what stage 5 looks like!

  • Florian Nicolai Vs Sam Hill

    3 months ago

    Sam Hill is in 2nd, but on the very same second sits 3rd placed Florian Nicolai as we go into the final stage of the day. The bad news for Flo is he says he's losing pressure in his back tyre and he just has to hope it holds for stage 5 - a big ask for this 6.5km, 15 minute stage

  • Richie Rude has a huge lead

    3 months ago

    Richie will go into the last stage of the day with a massive lead of 16 seconds! Sam Hill sits in 2nd and on the very same second sits Florian Nicolai - everything now comes down to this final stage...

    Walker comes through 4th - not many riders left on 4 now

  • Adrien Dailly

    3 months ago

  • Gustav Wildhaber

    3 months ago

    Cube rider Gusti drops into 3rd place behind Neer!

  • Richie Rude

    3 months ago

    Rude leads stage 4! He puts 8 seconds into team mate Shawn Neer - but the top 20 men are still to drop in so this isn't a done deal yet

  • Rude

    3 months ago

  • Richie Rude leads 2!

    3 months ago

  • Stage 1

    3 months ago



  • Stage 1

    3 months ago

    Stage 1 is called Voltron and is nearly 4km long. There's a 3km liaison to get the start of the stage after they've taken the lift - which given the heat will probably feel like double that distance today

  • general information

    3 months ago

    Today's race features five stages over 41km and a staggering 3000m of descending. Quite a few of today's stages are accessed using lifts, which given the current heatwave that's engulfed Europe, the riders are very relieved about. However, the stages are long (the longest being over 6.5km) and they are tough - it's still going to be an incredibly physical race today.
