It's never over until it's over. The first event of the 2014 Enduro World Series came down the 6th and final stage of the weekend. Jared Graves had been in the lead after the first 5 stages, only to have Jerome Clementz put down a blistering time on the epic, and long, Stage 6 to swoop the overall victory by some 8-seconds. High in the Chilean Andes, Anne Caroline-Chausson dominated they women's field by winning 5 of the 6 stages and running away with the overall win by over a minute.
This is the second season for the Enduro World Series and the Nevados de Chillan event, hosted by Montenbaik, was a new event on their calendar and all reports from the ground confirm that the trails, stages and scenery were unparalleled. The Enduro World Series heads to Tweedlove Scotland for the next race of the season in about a month. Vital MTB will be there covering each stage with our frontlines photographers.
Give it up Sven Martin, Dave Trumpore and Gary Perkin who traversed the Andes mountainsides for the last week, bringing us incredible stories and photos!
