Enduro World Series Race Action - Stages 6 - 7 from Trestle Bike Park 5

<b>Jared Graves never lets up, not for a second, getting on the gas a full bike length or two earlier than everyone else out of the turns. Every strokes counts in the stage, the race, and the series. 34-seconds ahead of the rest after 44-minutes of racing.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Jared and his winning, prototype Yeti.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Anne Caroline Chausson winning to get the cash for some new shoes!</b> -Lee Trumpore

<b>Richie Rude taking another stage win (three in total this weekend) on Stage 7. Still so young, he has already learned and developed so much as an Enduro rider in a short year. Crushing it.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>How many 19-year olds can say they have won a DH World Championship and multiple EWS stages all within 12 months time?</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Tracy Moseley on Stage 7. She put in a good fight but couldn't find that extra gear to close the gap to Anne today.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Rene Wildhaber 3rd today. The age gap on the podium was twenty years between him and Richie. Legend. #wontbackdown</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Anneke Beerten was happy with her 3rd place finish after barely surviving a bug yesterday. She tells us about her integrated hydration system.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Mitch Ropelato slipped back quite a bit to Rene Wildhaber on Stage 6 but came roaring back to finish 2nd on Stage 7. Unfortunately for him, he was just shy of the podium in 4th spot. Not bad for his 2nd enduro race.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>This is what the track would look like as your brain quickly became deprived of oxygen on the high altitude pedaling of Stage 6. Anka Martin feels the pain.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Cedric chose to be, well, Cedic. Adopting the aero approach to the physical Stage 6 today.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>#becausehecan</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Yoann Barelli performed well on the more DH-style trails. With a 2nd and a 4th on Trestle DH sections he earned enough time for 11th overall this weekend.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Clean sweep hat trick for Krunk vs Lars.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Good to see some different styles and courses on this stop of the Enduro World Series. Safe to say nearly everyone loved the jumps. ACC, Mark Scott, Dan Atherton, Mitch Ropelato, Lars (with a flat) Sternberg, Jesse "boost to the moon" Melamed. </b> -Sven Martin

<b>Mixed weekend for the Atherton Racing duo of Dan and Martin Maes. Martin had to settle for 6th overall after a crash in the final stage.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Don't leave your laptop unattended while editing or the winner may tag his shots with some MS paint work. Dave Trumpore's computer gets the treatment. </b> -Sven Martin

<b>Thankfully his riding is better than his MS paint skills.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Martin Maes on Stage 6. Being a few thousand meters above his home elevation of Belgium made it hard to manage effort on the longer stages.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Curtis Keene saw me camped out in this spot while going up on the chairlift, and I told him he had to jump high enough to get above the tall grass if he wanted a spot in the slideshow. #boostamante</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Thoughts and healing vibes go out to shredder Brittany Clawson who got seriously hurt on Stage 6 today. Get well soon!</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Another solid result for Scotsman, Joe Barnes, proving to be one of the most well-rounded riders here on the EWS circuit. 7th place a million miles from his native terrain. </b> -Sven Martin

<b>Between stages some of the video squids keep themselves entertained with various two-wheeled games. #pansnzooms</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Mark Scott weaves between the tight trees on Stage 6 It's hard to throw down the power sprints while dodging handlebars nearly every pedal stroke.</b> -Sven Martin

<b>Damien Oton loves to fly and loves to push it on the more gravity-oriented stages. Unfortunately he lost a good few points in the overall to Jared. </b> -Sven Martin

<b>Justin Leov, with a strong 5th overall this weekend.</b> -Lee Trumpore

<b>Jesse Melamed, 15th this weekend and onward to his motherland known as the Great White North for the next stop in Whistler.</b> -Lee Trumpore

<b>Lars spars with the gnar as he travels far down the mountainside scar.</b> -Lee Trumpore

<b>Tracy Hannah looked fast on the fast DH sections all week and her time finally came to shine with a 3rd place on Stage 7, just fractions behind her childhod hero, Anne Caroline</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Cecile Ravenel was close yet again, but still just one step from the podium in 4th.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Joe Barnes came the closest to hitting my bar drag bounty camera. #fishfrombelow</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Rosara Joseph fianlly broke her string of 6th place finishes and scored her best finish of the season in 5th.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>#doyouevendriftbro part 2 with Iago Garay.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Adam Craig threads the needle on Trestle DH as he drops in for the final stage of the weekend.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Newly-crowned Canadian National DH Champ, Vaea Verbeek is no stranger to the high speeds and rough terrain that made up Stage 7.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Florian Nicolai negotiates the tight and twisty woods of Stage 6 en route to his best stage finish of the weekend.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Richie Rude with his proud mom and sister after crossing the line on Stage 7 to take the win, and solidify the Yeti clean-sweep of every stage.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>Part-time racer, and full-time Yeti Marketing guy, Joey Schusler was pretty pumped about his 13th place finish and the race debut of Yeti's two new race bikes.</b> -Dave Trumpore

<b>What a weekend for Yeti? In Colorado, debuting two new bikes and taking 100-percent of the men's stage wins with Jared and man-child Richie. Rosara capped a Top 5 in the women's category, too. #marketingmanagersdream</b> -Sven Martin

The battle at altitude has come to a close as Jared Graves and Anne Caroline Chausson capture hard-earned victories during the 5th stop of the Enduro World Series at the Trestle Bike Park. 7 grueling stages featured a variety of terrain and pitch proving that all-around skill was the key to success. Sven Martin, Dave Trumpore and Lee Trumpore were there capturing the stories and images. Experience the action!
