Les Deux Alpes - Enduo World Series: Preview

Share:

Just as the dust is starting to settle after the second round of the EWS, the third round is kicking off in Les Deux Alpes. This round of the EWS is part of the Crankworx Europe festival.

Current standings going to this event are:

Jared Graves – 920
Jerome Clementz – 740
Nico Vouilloz – 726
Fabien Barel – 682

Full men’s results here.

If Graves can carry on as he is, it’s going to be pretty hard for anyone to catch him. Although after saying that, with these events being so demanding and riders will continue to encounter problems like Barel and Clementz did in the last round, the event is still all very much to play for.

Tracy Moseley – 1200
Cecile Ravanel – 920
Anneke Beerten – 780
Ines Thoma – 660

Full women’s results here.

Tracy seems unstoppable, she’s almost 300 points above anyone else, but once again these tracks are super demanding and anything could happen in future rounds!

So where is Les Deux Alpes?

Unlike the last round, all the racing is going to happen on the Sunday and the racers will be allowed to practice on the Saturday, but only on the Saturday, any racer who is found practicing before hand will be immediately disqualified. There will also be 4 special stages, and the liaison stages will be a mixture of climbs and chairlifts.

Finals video from the last round at Val d’Allos:

  1. Eoin

    Cheers for the info, although it would be nice if the names were spelled correctly (Fabien, Anneke). Crazy to think that Jey, Fab and Nico all punctured in 1 of 2 events yet are still ranked 2-4!

    1. Ben

      That’ll teach me to copy and paste results! Good spot Eoin!

  2. James

    So for those who are heading out in a few weeks time, what are the chances of riding the stages? Are they going to be through private/unrideable land or, using a map, can I go and do it myself? Presuming its not all bikepark tracks. I’m doing a lot of the UK races so checking out what a EWS round involves would be really good.

      Good question, I wanna know too. Would be fun to try out on the AM steed.

  3. Kenton

    I did the Mondial du VTT a few years back. Just looking at the map, it looks like some of the same tracks are used. So I think it’s all accessible. At least it looks that way from the map.
