EWS Whistler 2019: Day One Results

EWS Whistler 2019: Day One Results

Results are in from the first day of racing in Whistler EWS 2019. Day one had just one stage of racing, but being ‘The Top of the World’ stage it makes up a large portion of the full race. The women’s racing is super tight so far, with just over 30 seconds separating the top five. In the men’s Richie Rude put in a serious margin into the rest of the field, and with new names mixing it up, tomorrows racing is going to be exciting.

1st: Isabeau Courdurier
2nd: Noga Korem
3rd: Andreane Lanthier Nadeau
4th: Katy Winton
5th: Miranda Miller

EWS Concussion Pocket Guide

EWS Concussion Pocket Guide

We spotted this simple and informative guide on the Enduro World Series website, something we recommend everyone printing out and sticking in your riding bag. Concussions are common place in our sport, but are a fairly invisible injury compared to a broken bone or an open wound, and ultimately often go ignored. Having the best advice and knowledge at your fingertips could be life changing. 

This guide offers, symptoms, red flags, a memory assessment, what to do and the best way to return to riding after.

We’d like to thank the EWS for making this guide. If you want to print of your own copy, you can find it here.

Eddie Masters and his ‘Enduro’ training program

Eddie Masters and his 'Enduro' training program

After a 3rd position in Canazei EWS a few weekends ago, Eddie Masters made a last minute decision to miss Andorra World Cup and race the EWS in Les Orres, France. In Les Orres he took his first ever EWS win last weekend, but that got us wondering about how Eddie is able to turn his hand to Enduro so easily. 

Archive footage from Morzine a few years ago, gives us an insight into his training program.
