With no time for riders to catch their breath, the Enduro World Series moved over the water from Wicklow in Ireland to the Scottish Borders town of Peebles in the Tweed Valley for the third round. Jerome Clementz and Tracy Moseley were leading the series after the first two events but their challengers are certainly bringing the fight to them.

 such a great coverage video!!

 The coverage is absolutely spot on but if there is one area that could be improved, it is the standings presentation : it could be great to extend the intermediate timings after every stage to the first 10 riders, as the racing is getting so tight that there are some new names in the top 3 almost constantly...
Sick race : thanks PB for all the hard work !! Keep goin' !

 Great coverage PB! Though it doesn't capture the horrific conditions on stage 5. Axle deep ruts and sticky sand/mud/clay had both my wheels jammed up. Florian's ride was phenomenal to ride that fast through that crap.

 What an awesome weekend, I was glad to make it down without a serious crash on a hardtail! Just want to say a big thanks to Gatien Pernet, Conor Lavelle, and one other unknown rider for pushing me back after I snapped my derailleur off on the last transition of the day. They didn't need to but helped anyway and stopped me being penalised. True Athletes.

 Will there ever be a round in wales? so much riding to be had!
  • 3 0
 there should be... but I can't see there being 3 stops in the british isles... so it may take the place of this or ireland every few years?

 EWS a moneylooser for Tweedlove, rumours it might not happen next year. if Wales could stump up the cash, there's a lot of potential there Also less driving for me !
  • 2 1
 Is it a money-loser over the week or year? I know it's a popular and well known area but I'm sure this does wonders for drawing in even more riders over the course of the year!

 It definitely brings in a tonne of money to the town and the area. But someone has to actually pay for the event, and that someone is the Tweedlove organisation. 600 riders at £90 a pop doesn't begin to cover all the necessary expenses to run the event (event fees, medical cover, PA, staffing, vehicle hire, podium/stand, timing system, etc, etc, etc). So, there needs to be sponsorship, and although it looks like there are a lot of sponsors, each one of those isn't going to be tipping in a huge pot (although I'll not pretend to know all of the figures involved).

In a nutshell, it's not that easy to turn a profit on such a big event. Normally, these sort of events are paid for by tourist organisations. Even something like Crankworx Whistler took a long time before they started making money (I believe).

 I don't think it's fair to say that it's a money-loser, but the returns certainly don't reflect the effort put in by the organisers. The event brings millions of pounds into the local economy, but that hasn't been fully acknowledged or rewarded by national tourism related agencies that need to invest heavily in these events to bring them back. As fans of the EWS that live here in Bike Valley, we're all hoping that this will change for next year.

 So far this season has been awesome. Love that the men category is so wide open at each race but would love to see what Graves would have added to it if he was fit.

 Fantastic coverage by PinkBike ...... Amazing mixture and variety of trials from awesome natural, crazy DH, flowing trail centre.... rocky, dusty, wet, rooty, pluggy.... sun, gale force winds, rain and all within the same weekend........ EWS Tweedlove had it all !!! Well done to EWS, Pinkbike, Tweedlove.... but most of all to the top riders, trail builders, volunteers and marshals. See amazing riders on the greatest trails... making it look so easy and it's all for FREE to spectate. Lots of Love for the Tweedlove.

 Hit both shoulders like Joe Barnes said he did on that last 20m of track two weeks ago, kind of proud to have crashed like an EWS pro.

 I know camera angles can be deceiving, but if there was ever a course more or less custom built for a 140mm 29er like the Remedy, the 2nd day was definitely it.

Can these guys switch bikes between days of racing? 27.5 for one day, 29 for the next?

 No, they can't. Major components are marked by race officials to make sure they don't. These are the rules regarding equipment requirements.

5.7: Equipment Marking Stickers
Only one frame, fork and one pair of wheels can be used by a competitor during a race.

Officially marked equipment:

Fork Crown
Swingarm / Rear triangle
Front triangle
Both wheel rims
Competitor’s bikes will be checked for marking at the start of the race and at the finish of every Special Stage. Other random checks of stickered equipment will be carried out throughout the race.

A rider can use unmarked equipment during training unless otherwise stated by the organizer.

Only upon approval of the Race Director, may a rider replace a frame, fork or wheel. Following the repair the rider must return to the Race Director to have the replacement part(s) re-marked before rejoining the race.

A 5 minute penalty will be awarded to every rider who, having received approval by the Race Director, replaces the equipment listed above.

Any rider found to have replaced a named/marked part without consent from the Race Director will be disqualified (DSQ).

 Rude! Ah, hell man, but he's young and you either get more hungry in the face of a stumble (I won't say failure because look at the result), or you get too negative. Also, my man, work on that post race interview: Use JC, FB, or TMo as a reference.

 Is there better Coverage of this? The first race there was great coverage, was that just because it was a crankworx event? Not to take anything away from this but I want more, for a premier cycling event we deserve more than 10 minutes of riding.

 Rocky Mountain beefs up their Instinct and offers the "BC Edition", Trek should do something similar like a "Remedy Enduro Edition".

 That BC Edition instinct is a beautiful looking bike. However the remedy makes my man bits feel funny in a good way

 Should the women coverage take up such a large part of the video? There really isn't much depth to the field while the blokes are neck and neck battling.
