Enduro World Series, Samoens Stages 1 - 3 Race Action Slideshow

View as: Slideshow | One Page

We'll let the slideshow and these day 1 highlights do the talking.

  • Huge rains between practice run 1 and race run 1.
  • The gondola was on hold.
  • There were a couple airlifts that led to more course holds.
  • The eventual canceling of Stage 3 (technically just a repeat of stage 2), so only raced 1,2,4 today.
  • Anne Caro dropped out with some health issues, namely severe trouble breathing, and said it's the first time she has ever dropped out of an event in her career for something other than mechanicals or broken bones.
  • Clementz smoked Stage 1 but lost out bigtime to a handful of riders who were here in past weeks riding the trails that made up Stage 2 (it's also featured in the past 2 seasons French Enduro rounds to be fair).
  • Richie Rude hasn't been anywhere near France or Samoens and he killed it, even with a big crash in front of us on Stage 2. He would definitely be leading otherwise as he ran back up to make sure no one could accuse him of gaining advantage.
  • Two of the best stages tomorrow, Sven reckons whoever wins Stage 5 gets bragging rights for the weekend.
