There it is - the second race of the 2013 Enduro World Series in Val d'Allos, France is in the bag! Graves managed to claw back a few seconds on Vouilloz on the 6th and last stage, but it was not enough - Nico the "Extra-Terrestrian" adds an Enduro World Series title to his long list of career accomplishments. Graves finishes second in Val d'Allos, and takes the overall EWS lead heading into the next stop of the series. Minnaar shows his DH skills with a blistering time on the short final stage, enough to secure a fantastic 3rd place overall - quite a bounce back from Punta Ala. The rest of the Syndicate put in a strong showing as well, with Ratboy and Peaty right up there consistently.
Tracy Moseley was untouchable in the women's - she built up a strong lead on day one, and could basically manage her runs on day two to wrap up the race and strengthen her lead in the series overall standings. Cecile Ravanel rode to a strong 2nd place, with Anneke Beerten in third.
