RACE DAY ACTION: Les 2 Alpes Enduro World Series

One long day, four brutal stages and immeasurable drama sum up the Enduro World Series at Les 2 Alpes, which kicked off the Crankworx L2A festival this weekend. Jerome Clementz earned his first event overall win by powering through the painful Stage 1 climb and Pro women's dominator, Tracy Moseley, went 3 for 3 today. Stages 2 through 4 were basically considered downhill tracks by most competitors as steep, technical terrain made keeping one's bike together a difficult task. Clementz's victory at Les 2 Alpes pilots him into the Enduro World Series points lead, which prior leader, Jared Graves, suffered disappointment during racing, finishing 6th on the day.

Feast your eyes on the photos, tune your ears into the audio and imagine the smell of burning rotors as Sven Martin and Lee Trumpore bring you the best action on the web from the Enduro World Series.

    I'm going to repeat what I've said in every EWS and WC DH Vital race report to date; best coverage on the web. Somehow, in their own magical way, Sven and Lee are able to deliver the vibe of each event with pictures, captions, and audio clips that video falls short of. How is that even possible?

    I also saw on Rachel Athertons facebook she was complaining about someone cheating. Is this whole thing about 1 person seriously cutting through the tape or riders taking advantage of how the trail is taped "JB" style

    For those curious what Cedric was talking about when he mentions looking to the sides, Enduro-MTB.com captured this rather candid audio interview:

    "I don't know if this is racing or trying to be the best cheater?"
