Day one of the 2018 Trans Madeira is done and dusted. Living up to its reputation the island threw its usual mix of weather, trails and conditions at the riders.
The week began on the east side of the island where the EWS stopped in when it visited last year. Steep, rocky, slick, natural and some machine built trails made it a real test.
