Anita Gehrig's Norco Range
Anita Gehrig is running a very similar setup on her size large Norco Range as she was last season. A DT Swiss fork up front(65psi and two tokens) and a Rockshox Super Deluxe (140psi, three tokens) provide the suspension.
Going race to race she is hoping to keep the setup pretty consistent and doesn't think that she will do much to change the bike between races. Anita is comfortable on the current setup so will keep it this way for the rest of the season.
Deity provides the whole of Anita's cockpit, 760mm Skywire bar, Copperhead stem and Knucklebuster grips

Pedro Burns' Trek Slash
Praxis Lyft HD 170mm cranks and Magura MT7 brakes
Pedro Burns is coming into the EWS series with a win at the Andes Pacifico indicating he is more than ready for a season of racing at the highest level. His bike stays pretty much the same from the multi-day race in Chile. His 19.5" Trek Slash frame is supported by a Rockshox Lyrik Ultimate (90psi) and a Rockshox Super Deluxe shock (178psi).
Three 5mm spaces the stack height at the front of the Trek, paired with a short 30mm stem
Isabeau Courdurier's Intense Tracer
Bontrager G5 DH tires with 22.5 psi at the front and 26psi at the rear
After finishing second in the overall last year Isabeau Courdurier will be looking to improve on that this year with 2018 series winner Cecile Ravanel out of the first few rounds because of injury. Her size small Intense Tracer is running the Rockshox Lyrik Ultimate up front (56psi) and a Rockshox Super Deluxe out back (100psi with faster rebound)
The brake levers are run almost flat to make it easier to grab when leaning back on steep terrain
Isabeau is running a super short Renthal stem paired with 760mm wide bars
