Final Results from EWS Loudenvielle 2021 Race 1

Sep 2, 2021
by Ed Spratt  
Steep and loose in the Loudenvielle woods

After a long summer break, the EWS returns for its fifth round and the first race of the week. Check out who mastered the wet and wild course in Loudenvielle as riders face some very tricky conditions. In the U21 racing, Sophie Riva took a massive win as she bested the U21 Women's field by 24 seconds. After an incredible last stage win, Francescu Camoin managed to push himself into the top spot to walk away with the overall win today in the U21 Men's race.

For the Elite Women, it was once again Harriet Harnden who took the top spot after a mind-blowing final stage win of over 20 seconds pushed her from fourth to first place overall. Melanie Pugin also benefitted from the final stage as her place finish on stage four put her less than a second ahead of Noga Korem, who had been leading for most of the day.

After four more stages of racing, the 2021 Elite Men's EWS season continues to be a fight between Jack Moir and Richie Rude. Today it went to Jack as he secured the biggest between the pair so far at 12 seconds. Third place goes to Kevin Miquel, who is back on top form this week and ended the day 23 seconds off the pace of the fastest time.

Check out the full results below.

 Go Katy! Keep this up and surely a factory ride would be attainable for next year Smile

 She killed it…yeahhh
  • 8 4
 Top 4 within 20s and she comes in 5th with +1min leaves some room for improvement. But still good effort, she was in touch for a long time.

 Got to be a factory ride next year. NUKEPROOF are you listening????
  • 14 3
 Agreed but you can see why Trek gave her ride to Harriet
  • 9 0
 @CM999: True, Plus Harriet also races XC Inc world cups (UK u23 nat champ) and also races Cross. so more bang for their bucks!

I love Katy and what she is doing, her vids/updates are great, just really bad timing when trek let her go and no back up plan or putting the word out from Katy to see what might be available etc.
(and I cheered londer seeing her in 5th than harriet winning!)

 Stoked for her. Hope NP get her on the factory team for next year.

 5th for Katy!!
Plenty of Factory riders underneath her. I'm sure it's not as black and white as it seems but seems absolutely mental that she doesn't have a factory ride! Imagine Danny Hart (who was 5th at world champs) not being on a factory team. Ludicrous! Excited to see if/who picks her up next year or if she will carry on building her own team!

 Harriet Harnden with the shortcut on stage 4?! 20 seconds is unbelievable when the rest of the field are tight! Crazy

 Maybe had a big pedal section?? Her XC roots could explain that.


Or timing issues?

 Is it me, or is there usually more coverage of these than there has been with this one? Like, the GMBN previews with Ric McLaughlin, social roundups, raw practice footy. Here it’s just been that one thing of ALN’s crash.

I guess all the squids are on the VDS>Lenzerheide circuit…
  • 3 0
 Agreed, didn't eve see the course preview and they only did two stages? Overall pretty weak on the EWS side for some reason this round. Not just PB, but the EWS org in general.
  • 5 1
 Is it been killed the masters category now thats +35 young? Such a pity... The average age here readers I think it's around 40 and we can't know how are doing our similars and old legenda... +40 it was waay more credible... and maybe they should start rethinking perhaps +45 seeing the ones are winning championsihii recently...
  • 5 0
 Wow Harriet Harnden that's quite a performance in the final stage, awesome!
  • 4 3
 Racing was tight until the last stage today.

BTW I could someone please reverse the order here? Having to scroll through the results and then go top to bottom on the Twitter feed is annoying. I want to read through the feed without knowing who won.

 Well!!!! Hattie Harndedn, Malenie Pugin, and Jack Moir were all on my team. However, Vid Persak is too, and it looks like he's down for the count. Still, guaranteed 700 points is nice for picking both winners and second place!
