That's a wrap here at the EWS in Winterpark, CO. 10,000ft of altitude, 7 tough stages and dusty, hot conditions definitely tested the team this weekend. Aurelien was on a good run on the cross country like stage 6 before being stopped on course due to a crash. This meant he had to head back up the hill for a re-run on the toughest stage of the weekend placing him 46th. He redeemed himself on the 7th and final stage finishing 21st which placed him 27th at the end of the race. He is now standing in 16th overall after 5 rounds. Fabien pushed hard on the 6th stage but couldn't put the time he wanted on the flat slippery stage finishing 34th. Unfortunately in the final stage of the day there was no luck for Fabien and his hub locked spinning his legs in the opposite direction until finally the chain snapped and wrapped around his cassette placing him in 79th place, he did well to finish 36th. Despite that Fabien gained one position and is 20th overall. Jamie kept it smooth and consistent without to much troubles on stage 6 placing in a respective 32nd place. In the final stage he rode smooth and nailed the lines he was aiming for finishing of in 34th. His fitness paid of in the altitude placing him in 30th. He is now 25th overall. Tracey struggled through the tough stage 6 wanting a consistent result to hold onto her overall placing, the tough stage gave her a 16th. The final stage suited her well and she gave all that she had left and finished in 3rd place, her first ever enduro stage podium. She finished in 6th of the race which was a great result leading into the Mont Sainte Anne - World Cup next weekend.
