Keegan Wright through the lower part of Stage one that weaves in and out of the bike park.

Day one of EWS Les Orres is over and the four stages created some surprising results. In the Elite Men, it would be a different winner on every stage with Adrien Dailly holding the overall lead at the end of the day. Ed Masters should be glad he decided to focus on the EWS with a second place results. Richie Rude had a tough day but he is in touching distance of the win in third position.

In the Elite Women, Isabeau Courdurier continues her domination of the 2019 series and holds the lead going into day two. Raphaela Richter also had a great race with three second place finishes and a stage victory over the dominant Courdurier. Completing the overall top three is Ines Thoma who managed to stay consistent and holds a great position going for the overall win.

STAGE 2 (QUEEN)

Stage Updates

4:37 am PDT After a second place on the first stage Raphaela Richter is again the early leader on the second stage.

4:44 am PDT Miranda Miller goes over twenty seconds back from the top time.

4:47 am PDT Ines Thoma manages to beat Miller's time but it still more than fifteen seconds off the pace.

4:49 am PDT ALN finishes the stage almost twenty seconds back and slots into third.

4:50 am PDT Noga Korem is just off Thoma's time.

4:52 am PDT Isabeau Courdurier goes fastest again and takes her fifth Queen stage win of 2019.

5:00 am PDT Hugo Pigeon has set the current fastest time on stage two, can Ed Masters get another stage win?

5:01 am PDT Richie Rude goes over 18 seconds faster and now leads the Queen stage. The extra series points will be very useful if he can keep the top spot on this stage.

5:06 am PDT Rude apparently had a big over the bars crash on the second stage so despite his current lead it looks like the top guys will probably best his time.

5:08 am PDT Leigh Johnson finishes the stage in second but there is still a big gap to Rude.

5:10 am PDT Sam Hill may receive a time penalty for arriving late to the start of stage 2.

5:11 am PDT Adrien Dailly is unable to beat Rude's time, it looks like the crash may not have slowed him down too much.

5:12 am PDT Dimitri Tordo is coming off a great result last weekend and goes into third.

5:13 am PDT Kevin Miquel didn't have the best first stage but he is back in the mix on stage 2, he goes ten seconds back.

5:14 am PDT Ed Masters can't top Rude. Richie Rude must have been having an amazing run to maintain the lead and have a big crash.

5:15 am PDT Florian Nicolai comes over eleven seconds back into fifth.
