Video: Shakedown Day - EWS Zermatt 2019

Sep 19, 2019
by Enduro World Series  

It's the final round of the 2019 Enduro World Series, and the new champions will be crowned in the shadow of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland on Saturday. Shakedown Day gave the pros the chance to get a feel for the terrain ahead of the race - but there was only one topic on everyone's lips, who will be 2019 Series Champion - Sam Hill or Florian Nicolai?

 That practice (non-race) trail that everyone is riding on is pretty sweet. I think the main thing that sets this course apart from the NA tracks are the tight and steep switchbacks. Will be cool to see those guys racing those trails! i so wish they had video during the race.

 Global warming was caused by using too much hairspray in the 80's. There's no turning back now.

 MTB racing this year is spetacular!!! DH WC with that amazing finals and now this crazy EWS finals in this beautiful Zermatt! Can't wait for this race, Sam can do miracles in Swiss trails and we know that but Flo is almost at home let's see, time will tell!

 with dh racing done i would love to have another event to follow, but is there really no live coverage whatsoever of the main event? just recaps? do big fans of the sport just refresh the live timing website?

 Live feeding race on the website is just not good enough and lack of excitement...I would like to tell Redbull tv guys, that it would be awesome if they set a live transmission to do the live coverage, adding some cool cameras on the hot spots of each stage....We all know that live coverage is very difficult at this kind of events...but hell they have the money to do a try

 Tracks and scenery look absolutely amazing. Does anyone fancy sponsoring me? I’ve made a terrible mistake and I’m working the wrong job.

 What a view! Wow. It’s got to be a painting!

 Yes, I kept looking at it and thinking that it was a painted background, guess I'm so used to the smudge of pollution that I forget what crystal clear skies are like.

 There is is again, what does Josh Carlson mean when he says "trendsetters"?

 It was part of the Aussie vernacular in the 90's and maybe early 2000's can't remeber how it started I think someone on TV used to say it all the time. Someone else will remember.

 @Dallasdownunder: Rodney Rude address’s his audience as ‘trendsetters’

 @Dallasdownunder: It was the catchphrase of Rodney Rude, a politically incorrect comedian. His material hasn’t aged well.
