The full event list.
Nestled in the Atlantic between Portugal and the coast of Africa, this tiny island is about to serve up some big racing. Famous for the diversity of its terrain, riders will be faced with every kind of trail imaginable over two days of racing this weekend. From rocky singletrack down steep sided volcanoes to tight trails through native forests, riders will get to experience an incredible array of both natural and purpose built stages that will test every aspect of their riding.
The ever dominant Cecile Ravanel (Commencal Vallnord Enduro Team) leads the women’s race, with Ines Thoma of Canyon Factory Enduro Team in second and Trek Factory Racing Enduro Team’s Katy Winton in third. However, Isabeau Courdurier (SUNN) took her first EWS win at the last round and she’ll definitely be looking for some more time at the top of the podium this weekend.
In the team standings, the competition couldn’t be closer, with GT Factory Racing leading, but Canyon Factory Enduro Team just five points back in second and Rocky Mountain – Urge bp sitting third.
