 Great work guys - I know how many sleepless nights went into this, but I reckon they were worth it.

 This was great. Need more.

 Can I just say that this is the single best video Pinkbike has ever produced. For so many reasons I cba to list, so instead I'll just say well done and thankyou

 pretty well done.. just wish when results are posted it showed who they race for and what bike gear etc.. they are on. All the info right there...
  • + 1
 Why do you want to know what do they ride? Don't you get enough food from press releases?
  • + 3
 Just curious what bike and what team they race for... it's pretty easy to tell in DH for the most part but enduro is harder to tell who they are actually racing for. And a lot of European bike brands that you don't hear much about over here in the states...

 Let's hope every round is gonna be followed by a video recap of this quality. Nice!
  • + 19
 I agree, it blows all expectations. For me personally it's looks like it's done better than how Eurosport covers WRC.
  • + 27
 10/10 would watch again! Good job to all those who competed and especially well done to the 4 kiwis in the top 10! Thanks for an awesome edit as always!
  • + 4
 Hell yes buddy! Best EWS vid by far. Loving the kiwi vibe as always. I can't wait to get back to my home country!!! So much envy right now.
  • + 20
 Awesome coverage, thanks so much.
  • + 12
 Sick video, congrats to all involved! Makes me want to go ride, so job done, I say!

 3 things. Florian Nicolai looks amazingly quicker than everyone on camera. J Clementz looks exceptionally shorter than I expected. Wyn Masters looked like he had body armor on in his interview. Correct me if I'm wrong. Best coverage of an EWS race ever! And best coverage of anything at CWX Rotorua
  • + 16
 body armour in enduro...that would be the day.
  • + 4
 his beard was pure body armor
  • + 1
 You're not wrong, i felt the same about Florian Nicolai on every takes of the 7 stages : quick, precis, self-assured,... but definitely perfectible with the English langage at the end ! Smile

 Awesome vidoe and race has gotten me more interested in following the EWS this year.

 f*cking top video, it's just fuelled my excitement for Round 3 EWS Peebles Scotland when i'll be right in amongst it, not racing but digging, taping and marshalling, love the vibe, maybe i'll race next year but think i'm too over the hill, AAAAAHHHH wish i was even 20 years younger then i wouldn't hesitate, it'll still be the mutz nutz when they churn out another banger of a video of the trails I ride, can't wait to see it, 30/31 may can't come quick enough
  • + 2
 Y'might be 20 years too old for EWS but you're going faster now than three years ago!
  • + 8
 Good shit-just what I've been wanting !
  • + 3
 Good report, but I think it sucks that there's no interviews and hardly any mention of Florian Nicolai. I suppose it's because he doesn't speak any english worth mentioning, but it wouldn't be too hard to use Isabeau as a translator after the race. Without the puncture in SS 7 he would have finished second. Was he unlucky or charging too hard?
  • + 4
 Holy F@ck only one comment about Sam Hill in flat pedals coming in 10th overall in the first round of the EWS? He's going to be damn dangerous during WC!!!!
  • + 2
 I can see him doing even better in the future.
  • + 2
 Just have to say, as a total newb to enduro racing and the EWS, this video is utterly compelling and makes me a fan right away. Can't wait for the upcoming races this season. If the purpose of video recaps like this is to grow the fan base, consider it a smashing success!
  • + 3
 Really good round-up of the event, hopefully you can do one of these for every round. Good mixture of action, background and rider profile...great job!
  • + 2
 With all those shots of that one Yeti rider, I was expecting an interview. Maybe he didn't want to talk to Pinkbike after the SB6 review - either way, seems pretty Rude if you ask me.
  • + 4
 Florian Nicolai : a very impressive round 1,
one of the new french wave ! that's for sure
  • + 1
 I'm asking where is Cedric? Where is any informations about him or special interview with him?
Maybe he is not in top 10 even in top 50 but for sure he is in top 3 OUR FAVOURITE RIDERS! Is he?
I postulate special episode with CEDRIC!!!
  • + 1
 CG crashed 5 times on stage and, arguably, that set his pace for the whole race www.facebook.com/pages/Cedric-Gracia/211101762241216

 Great vid, Rotorua spot is beautiful, impressive trails (I've been there twice some years ago but without bike!) nice Kiwi vibe, one-day format seems to be the way to go. btw 3 Frenchs and 2 NZ on the top 5, that's what they call biculturalism?.. no, that's in Canadian Rugby..
  • + 1
 Shame there was no mention of the woman in the masters category who lost her seat on the first stage (her husband didn't tighten the bolts enough, apparently - always blame the mechanic!) and did the next ~50km with a t-shirt wrapped around her seatpost!
  • + 2
 That was some solid mountain biking. And Anne Caro, daemm, what an aggro style. Anyone having some gender issues, I can't tell the difference between her riding and that of the guys - I am in love!

 Chausson trains in the machine of gravity as Goku, wherefore is it so fast.

 Awesome vid! .. Sam Hill is 10th!
  • + 2
 excellent vid thanks. Top level enduro just looks like so much fun - You'd be hard pressed to have more enjoyable full day on your bike than that. Nice to see Flanagan enjoying a plum.

 The only thing better than making it to day 5, being totally exhausted, a bit battered and bruised, is having a guy in a tree screaming in your face with a bullhorn when you ride by...
  • + 1
 Indeed, having a monkey-masked bellower abusing raider's ears in the middle of a stage was a bit over the ... branch
  • + 3
 So there is actually no footage of Sam, Blenki and Wyn dominatin the last stage? I would have loved that.
  • + 1
 Sam Hill won the last stage yeah.
  • + 2
 Awesome stuff. Jerome, Fabien and Wyn all seem like really great guys. Big thanks to Fabien too for his old technique videos, they improved my riding for sure.
  • + 1
 Editor in chief no less. Great programme and loads of great comments well deserved. Really looking forward to the next round. As the EWS progress the coverage has followed suit. LIVE TO RIDE
  • + 3
 Loved watching that, think everyone will agree that we want the same for all the next races Big Grin
  • + 1
 Great roundup video, when you miss the live coverage you don't want to be watching it all back and this sums up the action perfectly. Thanks guys, great job and keep it up for the year ahead
  • + 2
 What a round!! Some pretty impressive privateers in the mix. Someone needs to get in quick and sign Deon Baker.
  • + 1
 It's cool that Jerome wants to see Grubby back in action! That's a competitor. Graves is a beast! And Richie - stay upright on the next one bud! You too Cedric.

 Was awesome to be there and watch these guys. Their riding is just on another level! Well done Rotorua.

 Open face helmets at that speed are gonna open your face.

 Best coverage of any sport I've watched, new bike arrives here this week and now I'm stoked to go shred !!
  • + 2
 outstanding footage pinkbike. lets hope every round will be as good as this.
  • + 2
 How are they switching between full face and half face and pack and no pack? Anyone have insight?
  • + 2
 they were able to switch during the liason stage where they are bused shuttled to stage 7 at MT Nongataha which was on the other side of town from the Whaka forest, so refresh mechanical repairs what ever grab a full face and hit the DH to finish.
