 Woahly frig! What a tight one on the Women's side.
In Men's news: Finn is still fast.

 Looks like Miranda gave it the beans on the final stage. Came ohhhh so close.

 @Trudeez: That's half a pedal stroke right there.

 @Trudeez: Talk about competitive with +/- 3 seconds flip flopping on each stage. So impressive the level of compete in these athletes.

 .03 That's less than a good fart on a straight away.

 Is there a place I can check the stages/tracks details?

 Honestly think this enduro shit will make Finn faster at WCDH when it comes to it. Probably a nice boost for his fitness.

 @anchoricex: I think it's also really good for his confidence.

 this Finn kid looks good. promising future.

 @Lagr1980: yeah, he should really see about finding a sponsor

 To be fair, looks like Kasper had an issue on stage 4, otherwise it was a 7 second gap. Still a good chunk, but not as bad as it looks.

 Who else wants to see Brett Rheeder race all 4 events??? I do!!!

 Coming of knee surgery.
He can’t.
He’s pumped to race the DH.

 Dang tight racing! Way to go Kasper, backing up a big performance at Silverstar. Impressive.

 bad bike.

 I think he had a crash on stage 1 based on the instagram story. Looks like he prob would have been 2nd without that?

 That's a good question. I did take a time-consuming crash on stage 1 today, otherwise right there with those young pinners. I'm keeping the build steady for EWS.

 Nice job Kirk, I thought you would do well at Kicking horse. DH should be interesting. Go get it.

 Thanks Yaan!

 But I don't understand! I've been told by marketing you can only win Enduro races on the Specialized Enduro bike! How can this be? It almost appears to me as if the rider makes the difference! Does this mean instead of working overtime to afford a the 9.750$ S-Works model, I'd be better off training and riding more and keep my old bike? I'm confused, please help - this contradicts all press releases of the last years!

 yes! you have made a serious step into unending enlightenment here Big Grin

 All jokes aside, spending the money on coaching and riding/gym time would most definitely make you a better rider then a high end mtb...

 Damn, .03. I thought the Northstar Hill/Rude battle was tight.

 That's like 5 engagement points on a hub
  • 6 0
 @NWS: On a shimano Hub that 5 is the difference between Finn and Kasper lol
  • 8 0
 MMMMMMMMMiller! 2 seconds traded every stage then .03? I suspect they both had big grins on their faces come podium time, 'cause a .03 diff is just the type of day that makes racin' racing ;-)

 Bummer for Jesse. Must have had a crash or something on stage 1
  • 14 1
 I did, an unfortunate one that cost a lot of time!

 @JesseMelamed: Glad you came out of it alright. Good luck with the rest of the events!

 Go ALN!

 Hmm wonder what kind of training Finns sponsors have been putting him thru, or is it the Redbull??
  • 16 0
 Doping aside, WC DH racers are another level of fast. Looks like Finn has been riding a lot of trail in his free time the past few months so I'm not surprised that his fitness and speed are bagging him these wins.

 @deonvg: Now the Enduro racers know what the downhill racers have to contend with!
  • 5 0
 @deonvg:

I mean, haven't a fairly large number of the serious contenders at the EWS also been DH racers previously? I mean, obviously Sam Hill, Richie Rude, and Martin Maes. But I'm sure there are a bunch of others that I can't think of offhand.

 @ocnlogan: Look up all of these riders on Roots and Rain and the majority will have competitive (and successful) DH experience under their belt.

 ALN showing everyone how sewing actually counts! Smile

 Finn still racing the beefed up trail bike? If so might be a new build trend.
  • 1 0
 Watch everybody sell their Meta AMs and Madonnas in favor of riding Stumpy's and Hightowers, just cause Finn is winning on a trail bike.

 @4thflowkage: They are fun LOL. My Django is built similar. Had a coil and over fork since 2017 when I built it. Not as durable but a fun ride.
  • 5 1
 Wow, Finn is in a league of his own! Out in front by 27 seconds, while the next 27 seconds covers 2nd to 7th places.

 Would love it if Jesse had a clean race. Might give us a better idea. Still impressive, given Finn's complete lack of enduro experience.

 Andreane Lanthier Nadeau is a dream. Awesome rider and super stylish young woman

 Seems like Kasper is getting it done. Won a stage, 2nd, 3rd and lost the difference on the last stage with a 9th. Something happen or just wasn't his stage?
  • 2 0
 Check his insta, looks like he almost had a bit of a crash, and broke a spoke.

 Shout out to the pros racing reading and responding to the comments here.

 It's nice to see Jesse still get 6th after a crash that sent his bike flying. Hopefully no crashes or mechanicals in the next one!

 finn is doing better in enduro than downhill, i guess the only reason he continued with is because he had never raced enduro before last week

 Fabien, Leonie, and Trevor holding it down for those of us born in the 80s! Damn these "kids" are fast! Wink

 Winning an enduro on a Stumpy? I thought you need a big travel enduro bike to race enduro.

 Yeah, everyone says: "oh, you need 160 mm to ride enduro" no you don't, i hate when people say that, it's so annoying

 Where’s Eathan Shandro?? Wouldn’t he be the top Canadian contender in downhill ? Hes a BC boy as well -
