FINAL RESULTS: Rude and Courdurier Win in Northstar, Men's Overall Title Fight Will Go Down to the Wire 8

Officially the closest EWS finish ever, Northstar delivered plenty of drama on race day.

FINAL RESULTS: Rude and Courdurier Win in Northstar, Men's Overall Title Fight Will Go Down to the Wire

What a race it was, and how fitting that it should be decided by the slimmest of margins ever seen in an EWS race. Picking up where they left off on day one, Richie Rude and Sam Hill would keep trading stage wins and the overall lead throughout day two, with the American coming out on top by a mere 0.8 seconds when all was said and done. Sam picked up the Queen Stage win along the way, earning him valuable points for the overall, while Mitch Ropelato held on to his third place finish from day one to ensure a strong presence for home nation USA on the podium. In the women's category, Noga Korem claimed her first ever EWS stage victory on the Queen Stage, but was unable to catch Isabeau for the race win.

With seven out of seven wins this season, Isabeau has now secured her first ever World Champion title, while Noga Korem is now safe in second as well. In the Men's, it's all to play for, as 60 points are all that separate series leader Florian Nicolai from a charging Sam Hill in second place. We'll see you in Zermatt for the final battle!
