Busted And Bruised But Not Beaten


As the EWS enters the last chapter of the season the intensity of the racing always ramps up - and true to form round seven in Crans-Montana proved to be as intense as they come.

In the men’s competition series leader Jack Moir’s (Canyon Collective) race was thrown into disarray right out the gate, when a crash on the Pro Stage left him with a dislocated shoulder severe enough to raise the question as to whether he would even attempt Sunday’s stages.

Perhaps knowing his main rival Richie Rude (Yeti/Fox Factory Team) walked away with the Pro Stage win was what spurred him on to try.

Moir finished the race in a very respectable tenth place - not enough to hold the series lead which goes to Rude - but enough to keep him in contention with two races still to go.

Connor Fearon (Kona Factory Team) finished inside the Top 20.

The series now heads straight to Italy for round two of EWS-E and the penultimate round of the EWS; Bluegrass EWS & EWS-E Finale presented by Vittoria.

The opening round of the 2021 EWS-E season saw a diverse mix of racers take to a huge course that encompassed three loops, nine stages and 60km of racing in a single day.

Josh Carlson (Giant Factory Off-Road) would finish the weekend in 13th overall, with Jared Graves (Yeti/OneUp Pro Team) in 42nd in his first EWS-E
