This week end was the final round of the EWS 2014 season and what a final. Once again a super physical round, no lift, just pedaling. Almost 90km of riding, 2 days and 6 stages. The weather has been amazing on all 4 days (2 days of practice et 2 days of racing) and the stages were absolutely amazing, fun loamy/flowly trails to super rough and rocky downhill tracks, it’s been a mix of everything.

It was Guillaume’s second EWS this season and he really wanted to finish this one, he had a rough day on day 1, almost missing his start at stage 3 and 4, didn’t even have time to put his googles and gloves on, but managed to get through the day. On sunday he was ready to battle with the 20km of climbing to start with, a few hours later he was back at the pits with a smile on his face, he’s done it but finished 173th position.


Aurelien’s week end hasn’t been ideal but still fairly consistent in the top 20 if it wasn’t for a one mechanical and a big crash on the last day of the week end, that send him back to 31st.

After his season high at Trans-Savoie last week, Jamie was still feeling a bit tired, heavy legs and general fatigue. He still managed to pull a good results through the week end. He had a big stack on stage 2 saturday, big OTB. Luckily he was all good to finish 24th.
