Josh Lewis points it back in on Stage 2.

The shakedown and practice days are in the books at EWS La Thuile 2021, and riders have now ridden essentially everything they'll race this week. It's onward to Race #1, then they'll have a rest day before practicing a different version of one of the stages, racing it as a prologue to the weekend race, and then putting themselves through another long, brutal day of racing on steep, high alpine tracks. Here's what they have to say.



Ed Masters

Isabeau Courdurier

Jack Moir
The silver surfer himself. This is only Jack Moir's second EWS season and he is leading the series after two races.



Richie Rude
The long, rough, and steep tracks of La Thuile will undoubtedly suit Richie Rude.



Harriet Harden
There are quite a few riders fresh from racing DH in Les Gets last week, but Harriet Harden was the only one racing XC. After a 6th place finish in Les Gets and her first EWS podium in Val di Fassa, confidence will be at an all-time high.



Charlie Murray
After a stoppie challenge pit crash, Charlie Murray won't be racing this weekend but is still finding time to run to the top of the stages.



Jamie Edmondson
Straight from Les Gets, into the war zone of La Thuile. Jamie Edmonson doing it all.

After the birth of his first child, Martin Maes is back racing the EWS. Never count this man out.



William Scheele
The La Thuile stages are a unique kind of rough.



Joe Nation
Intermittent thunderstorms forecast for this weekend in La Thuile...
