Colorado brings yet another format of racing to the table, this round gave us 5 stages over 3 days, two on the first day, two on the second, and one on the final day. With the formats always changing, this forces the riders to change how they ride in each stage, the mental game they play with themselves, and even what sort of training they do leading up to each event. To be an Enduro champion, not only do the riders need to be fast on a bike, they need to be able adapt quickly to each different event format.
Yesterday stage 4 had to be cancelled due to issues with the chairlift; this forced them to split up stage 3 into two parts.
After the second day of racing, Jerome Clementz is leading the men’s category by 35 seconds. It looked like Graves was onto a bit of a stormer here in Colorado, he was in first position in stage 1 and 3b, he was in second position at stage 3a, but in stage 2 as he’s was about 3 minutes back, which shattered his podium hopes.
Tracy Moseley is seemingly unstoppable this year; she’s cleaned up at every single round so far. This round Tracy is still leading but the times are slightly tighter, she’s leading with a gap of 38 seconds on the mighty Anne Caroline Chausson. This round is still all to play for; we look forward to seeing who comes out on top later today.
