Stage 3... what a trial that just seems to go on forever

Ahead of a full day of racing on Thursday riders are already back on course for the EWS Pro Stage. Following Thursday's frantic day of racing where Harriet Harnden and Jack Moir came out on top, riders now face a single-stage challenge before taking on more stages tomorrow.

 Rad to see such tight racing on the women's side. Less than two seconds separate the top 5.As much as I appreciated past domination by single riders, I hope this means the fields stay deep for at least a few years.

 Go on Jack! Couldn't be happier for the guy, from his YouTube channel he comes across as a proper legend. Always takes time to talk to everyone.

In other news, Sam Hill really ain't feelin it this year is he? They need to start throwing his wages over to Elliot

 Wtf? When I posted this, Jack Menzies was listed as finishing in third place in the U21 Men. Then it was changed. Still a great job, and something definitely worth celebrating. And I still intend to hit some fine Canmore terrain very shortly in honour of you, Mr. Menzies…

 ‘Jack Moir blows open the Men's race with a winning margin of nearly two seconds.’

Two seconds over 5 and a half minutes is ridiculously tight

 "The Pro stage is a new format for 2021 with the riders taking on a single stage with bonus points up for grabs."

How does it differ from the queen stage?

 I’ve got Alex Storr in 2nd according to the EWS website. Any chance the U21 results were preliminary?

 You're right, it looks like there may have been a delay in some of the times coming through. We have just updated the U21 results now.

 Given that there are only six categories to report on in EWS you could list the Masters results as well.

 Wait so there's a pro stage today and the rest of the race tomorrow? I think PB just recycled the text and I'm confused.

 For races with a Pro stage, the Pro stage is done the day before the remaining stages. This is effectively stage one of Round 6 of the series, with stages two through to six taking place tomorrow.

 @CleanZine: I was just confused because it says Thursday up above. I already have enough trouble keeping track of days during covid!

 @Jvhowube: Yeah, that error was confusing to me as well. I noticed some others have commented how Pinkbike's EWS coverage has been pretty shoddy compared to previous years and I have to agree, very limited content.

Perhaps EWS going with GMBN for coverage over pinkbike has resulted in pinkbike prioritizing UCI DH and XC over EWS.
