Enduro World Series, Samoens Stages 4-5 Race Action Slideshow

View as: Slideshow | One Page

Richie Rude wins his first-ever Enduro World Series race at the ripe age of 20. In a nail-biting battle that came down to the wire, the young American was able to best one of mountain biking's greatest racers of all time, Nicolas Vouilloz. Tracy Moseley took a convincing win among the Elite Women putting the rest of the field in a points choke hold only halfway through the season.

Sven Martin and Lee Trumpore take us trackside for the action and adventure through photos and interviews.

Race Day Highlights

  • Richie crashed on almost every stage but still clawed back time all weekend and took the overall win without winning a single stage.
  • Both he and Nico knew they were only .20 of a second apart going into the final stage.
  • Nico crossed the line with look on his face that said it all.  He struck a rock with his crank exiting a corner at full gas. His bottom bracket area was damaged significantly impacting pedaling. While he stayed on his bike the damage was done.
