Joe Breeden


It was the first EWS for our rider Joe Breeden and what a mad one! Imagine waking up to temperature below zero and snowy mountain tops. Follow Joe on stage 1 in Zermatt and check for yourself what all those brave riders had to endure!

bigquotesVery pleased to finally get to my first EWS and what a wild one it was! Some extreme weather mixed in with very technical tracks! Hats of to these Enduro boys & girls, they don't mess about. Keen to get to another one soon and give it another shot.Joe Breeden

Bernard Kerr


bigquotesUnfortunately due to the worldwide pandemic most of our DH races as well as pretty much all sports have been cancelled...So to fill in for that Ive decided to do some EWS races!

The first round this year was in Zermatt after all the delays and postponed rounds...after a sunny start to the week it was pure rain and even snow for the weekend bringing there 4 stage race down to 2.

After stopping on stage 1 and craving on stage 2 i finished in 19th place...not exactly where I wanted but our team mate Morgane Charre killed it finishing 2nd and also securing 2nd place in the team overall for Pivot Factory Racing!

Hope you enjoy my misery in this!

Jesse Melamed


bigquotesHere is stage 1 and 2 from the EWS in Zermatt, 1st on stage 1 and 3rd on stage 2. Enjoy the mouth breathing! I do wipe my camera too!

The course was shortened due to the brutal conditions and evac concerns so I can fit the whole day in one video.

 The difference between Jesse's and Bernard's runs is impressive! Jesse is just so smooth and clean (and fit as well)

 Bernard; if you don't like enduro / EWS then don't enter the race and leave a number board free for someone that does.

 Interesting to see Jesse reached down to lock out his shock about half way down stage two (11:26). No remote lock out needed for that man!

 Just incredible skills and fitness. This footage just shows that there are no easy ews stages at that kind of pace.
