​Day 1 of racing at the Aspen, Colorado Enduro World Series event is in the books, and it almost feels like we should have seen this one coming. With Richie Rude diminished by a shoulder injury it's his old teammate Jared Graves stepping up to the plate and putting in a dominating performance of Rude-esque proportions, winning every stage on his way to a 20-second overnight lead. Not having had the best of luck so far in 2016, Graves will be stoked to know the speed is still there, and so will Martin Maes, sitting in third for his first race back after injury. Curtis Keene continues his recent run of good form holding it down for the USA in 4th overnight.

In the women's, it's business as usual for Cecile Ravanel, once again stomping her authority on the field with 3 stage wins out of 3 and a 50-second day 1 lead. Anneke Beerten was looking strong on her return to racing (having battled a virus), coming in just a few seconds down on Cecile over the first 2 stages, when a crash derailed her efforts on stage 3. Let's see if she can fight her way back up the standings again on day 2.
