Big rocks, even bigger crowds and some fresh new faces on the podium - this race was one for the history books. Here are the full highlights from one of the most intense races in the series' history.

 Don't get me wrong, but:

It would be unfair to say that Isabeau Courdurier is winning just because Cecile Ravanel is not racing. Isabeau Courdurier was the best of the field in Tasmania.

Some facts:

- Jill Kintner had 'fresh legs' since she ditched Crankworx NZ to focus on the Tasmania EWS.
- Rowena Fry knew the trails, as she stated on the video.

On a side note: Morgane Charre was on the fight until the crash on stage 5.

 Don't think many of the other girls did Crankworx either. Jill deserves a serious amount of credit for pulling a podium in her first real EWS race. She is going to be a threat for the rest of the season.

 Fresh legs? It was her first ever EWS... Was an amazing result.
  • + 8
 What I meant with 'fresh legs': all the other nine female Top 10 finishers at Tasmania did the EWS in Rotorua the week before, so they had two races in two weeks. One week is not enough to recover at the highest level, and Tasmania looks physically demanding.

and as I said from the beginning: "don’t get me wrong".

 A few random thoughts:

- Maes is absolutely crushing this season!
- What's up with Sam Hill? They mentioned very briefly he was still sick, but is that all?
- The real story here is we have a real battle between Master's bros! Wyn currently in the lead, with Eddie following closely behind. We need both to keep racing EWS and probably an entire mini series dedicated to Masters Vs Masters. Masters-Bowl for ultimate family superiority! (PB I volunteer to go to the remaining events to cover this very important story for you)
- Great video and production quality! However I still can't stand Ric

 Speaking of Masters (the class) , the M40 race was won by less than 1 second!

 Sam is racing with the Flu. Most people curl up in bed and whinge like little children but he is still out there competing. Hopefully he will get some down time now before the next race to shake it off but even then, it will take him some while to regain his form.

 Martin is a-maes-ing . . .really hope for Sam to give him a run for the money next round
  • + 7
 Nice coverage, where is privateer series?
  • + 3
 I was wondering the same thing. Unfortunately he isn't racing an EWS until Whistler in August.

 Great coverage, but I agree with @CarrotCorn that the music really took away from the highlights.

Also, when is Wyn TV gonna start covering the EWS?

 Maes looks like he having a blast. That's dangerous for the field

 "We thought it will be Rude to not make an entrance"
  • + 1
 I may be behind on the news but I thought Richie Rude was clear to race?
  • + 7
 He's allowed to race because a judgement hasn't come in yet, but it sounded like he's sitting out until everything is finalized. Seems like a class move ...
  • + 1
 @sap: Also I heard he's hoping that if there's a suspension of some sort that he'll get "time served" back to the last time he raced, shortening his overall time off the bike.
