Finals Photo Epic: Checkers or Wreckers - EWS Val di Fassa 2019

Jun 30, 2019

Photo Epic presented by ODI

It's been a wild week here in Canazei for the Enduro World Series. Five incredible stages, blistering heat, and some intense racing. Temps today topped out in the 90s (30s if you hate freedom), and despite the amount of lift access this round, the heat took its toll. Stage one started the day off with a bang. Adrien Dailly suffered a mechanical, and Jose Borges flatted, ruining his chance for a result on tracks that suited the Portuguese rider. Richie Rude was out to make a strong showing right off the bat and laid down a winning run that would set the tone for the day. Rude would go on to win four stages and take the overall win. It was good to see Rude back. Jesse Melamed had a bad off that would end his day. Melamed suffered a broken ankle and hand injury, we wish him a speedy recovery. Sam Hill was back on form and took second place, winning stage three. Ed Masters once again showed how quick he is going this season with a fourth finish. Florian Nicolai took third place for the men. Dimitri Tordo took fifth place for the men. Italian Marcello Pesenti was having what looked like to be a top ten day until disaster struck on stage five.

For the women's field, Isabeau Courdurier once again showed her dominance taking another win in 2019 Andreane Lanthier Nadeau was charging hard today and took third place, taking the win on stage four from Isabeau. Noga Korem would come just behind in third. Melanie Pugin rode to a fourth place and Morgane Charre took fifth place. Bex Baraona crashed on stage five and is reported to have sustained two broken ribs. It has been an incredible week of riding and racing here in Canazei surrounded by the astounding beauty that is the Dolomites. We can't thank the people of this town for their kindness and generosity. With the season heating up in more ways than one, we can't wait to see how Les Orres plays out next week. For now, it's time to rehydrate and recover from a massive day of racing.

 Telling Americans to use C instead of F is dumb. There are no advantages to C other than the rest of the world uses it. It's like telling us to jump off a bridge because everyone is doing it. F IS slightly more specific than C if no decimals are used...We should all use Kelvin anyways. The metric system is a different matter. That I could get behind. Stupid friggin inches...
  • + 5
 @DhDWills: thats a terrible analogy, no one is asking Americans to take their own lifes , its call being civil or common curtesy if you prefer.If you’re at a party with a bunch of french people and you’re the only American in the room, would you ask them to speak english cause its simpler for you?When was the last time someone ask you the temp and you answered 76,688888 Farhenheits? It may be a slightly more accurate measurement but it doesn’t provide any real advantages ....You guys not jumping on board with the metric/ celcius system makes it more complicated for the rest of the world.We all have to accommodate this and make an effort for YOU.
  • + 24
 @DhDWills: When it comes to science, engineering, etc - there's real benefit in using a standardized, common, system. There are even economic implications to all these conversions.
But, again, to point out the irony - i dont think discussing standardized units makes much sense on a website that's dedicated to the one industry on earth that is most obtuse to the meaning of the word "standard" Smile

We also use a lot of the metric system in general.

Its annoying in some respects because our machine shop wants inches and I'm forced to go back and forth. Which means I can't just make the change and go full metric.

My wife on the otherhand is an architect and they are full imperial, no metric, ever. She got a drawing set in metric and had to send it back.

 Sam has probably been tested in about 50% of all races he has done since he was a junior in 2001, until he came to the EWS, which before this season did not test. Note that DH does not have this kind of drama. Hopefully, now with testing in place, EWS will be clear of it after this season and it will never even get mentioned on PB, and they certainly wont include doping control in photo epics.
  • + 14
 Great photos. I know the doping tests are meant to protect the integrity of the sport, but I can’t help but feel like the way things have been handled has done as much harm as good. I don’t have the answers, but am I the only one wishing we could’ve seen who was actually fastest at this race? Without Maes, it feels a bit hollow.

  • + 1
 @Lagr1980: I think in a full field and dry, it's probably a toss-up between Rude, Maes and Hill. Rude's a back-to-back world champ and has won 20% of all EWS races (10 out of 50), is 24 and in the prime of his career, and should be in the top 5 for awhile (along with Maes and a ton of other awesome young riders). After his back-to-backs he had a couple of so-so years in '17 and '18, a lot of mechanicals and flats and a lot of rainy events that he's not good in. But he's undefeated since the sb150 came out (including races directly against Maes and Hill). So who knows, those two years could've been him adjusting to life as "the hunted" with the increase in eduro's popularity and many new (and better) racers, or just riding differently, or Yeti's sb6 and 5.5 not being honed to his riding as much as the 150 is, or just extremely wet conditions.
And you're right, in the wet he's not nearly as good. Personally I don't care about that - I'm in California, we usually have pretty dry/desert weather and don't ride in the wet anyway (trail care and all that). But any race that Rude is in, except if it's pouring rain, he has to be a favorite. And for crazy riding skills and pulling it out of that, check out Rude's run in the Whistler 2016 Enduro on the last stage Top of The World, where he beat the field by some 15-20 seconds to beat Jesse M in he overall by 7 seconds...

 Sorry this is annoying to you but if riders have nicknames or abreviations that they are know by or they themselves personally use rather more often than their full name, that is what we will write (Blenki, Bulldod, Brendog, Rae, ALN, Ratboy, etc).. It's not laziness, it's simply representing that riders identity the way they often present themselves to the mtb community. Cheers.

 @davetrumpore: aln is NOT a nickname, thats a terrible anology.
Blenki, bulldog, brendog , those are actual nicknames.

Pinkbike started this cause they couldnt pronounce or spell out her name correctly and it IS freakin lazyness.Do you seriously believe André-Anne presents herself that way ?? Ill give you an example: ANNE-CAROLINE CHAUSSON....Ever heard anyone called her ACC ? Its just a serious lack of professionalism, period.

Typical anglo attitude, lets butcher her name and make an englishism to make it easy for us to say her name rather than learn the correct spelling.

Now, she has seems to have adopted it which is cool , french people are use to stuff like that and we dont let it bother us but at the end of the day, its still not right.Trying to cover the facts makes it worst...Its simply laziness, and thats it.

 @tuumbaq: yeah, no... Not the case at all.

See above posts, about it being a nickname for many years, name in Jersey, in team videos, by other riders, etc etc etc... Pinkbike didn't start anything and we wouldn't make up an abreviation out of the blue or a nickname unless the riders themselves both uses it and was okay with us using it as well... thanks for the concern.

Typical Anglo attitude??? Be careful your Quebec is showing ;-)

 @davetrumpore: I saw her post and she never said anything about it being her nickname for years...Thats not a nickname, in fact it doesn’t even make sense as it should be AANL.And even is she had been using it for years, it make zero sense for a french person to come up with an abbreviation like that...Your people call you DT all the time Dave? ;-)

I may be wrong but to me , that is not something a frenchie would do instinctively.I doubt AndréAnne has been using it and ask her people back home to call her ALN for years.

I didnt mean anglo in a bad ,pissed off way, I get that it comes from a good intention but it is something anglophones have a tendency to do and Im sure I probably do it as well! :-)

Yes, Im from Quebec, but 100% of the time when I tell people where im from they go , oh so youre french! Hell no , Im Québecois but I speak french.If thats so hard to spell, at least French Canadian would be better... ! Lol How often do you get called an “english” Dave? ;-)

I dont mean to start a debate, its all good but trust me, after 42 years of being a frenchie , Ive seen this type of stuff a billion times, its a lovely way of ....being lazy... From a journalistic point of view, its wrong and PB should address this...again, Anne Caroline Chausson, no one would remember who ACC is, someone hadn’t made an effort to learn how to spell out her name in her early days, same should be done for AndréAnne

 Nicknames are commonly used after the person in question has achieved a level of fame or notoriety for a period of time under their full name. That way, people reading through the results will see the nickname, or in this case initials, and instantly know to whom it refers. Anne Caroline Chausson was referred to as ACC only after several years of being famous by her full name. I’m this case, ALN has obviously not achieved that level of fame or notoriety, since a lot of people (including myself) are clueless when they see those initials.
I’m not saying it’s wrong, but it probably is too soon.

 Is there any real science behind that sports tape stuff or is entirely placebo?
  • + 1
 The jury is still out. It can work to remind you of correct form and provide some support - although it isn't really a support bandage. It can work to relieve pain because your receptors are sensing the tape and thus you can "forget" the pain/discomfort. There's other uses/effects too. Obviously, serious pain, forget it. Nothing will stop that!

There is a degree of placebo effect too. You could argue that if the person gets pain relief/reduced DOMS/less fatigue etc then it worked.

My physiotherapist isn't a fan, but he said that if it works for you, then use it. It won't do harm.
