by Ed Spratt  
As the 2022 EWS season continues in Val Di Fassa we have rounded up all of the best videos to keep you updated with the racing this weekend. Come back throughout the weekend for more videos from practice, the Pro Stage and Sunday's big day of racing.

Race Day

We Are One Enduro Team:

In the Land of Ferraris, 5 Euro Margherita Pizzas, and road cyclists as far as the eye can see, the 4 young Canadians on the We Are One Enduro Team experienced the trails that Northern Italy had to offer in the 3rd stop of the EWS. Coming off of a high in Petzen-Jamnica the week before, the boys were excited to prove themselves once again. One of them may have been TOO excited as Johnathan Helly found himself in the clinic after a crash on stage #3. The other riders however found themselves with solid results that left them hungry for more.

Full Highlights:

bigquotesWelcome to the second episode of the all new Enduro World Series Show, your complete guide to all things EWS!

In this show we dig deeper into the dirt of the second round of the Enduro World Series and EWS-E from Petzen-Jamnica. It's been four years since the series visited the race course which straddles the Austro-Slovenian border and it was definitely a return to the big, physically demanding stages of old!

In this episode we follow local racer Vid Persak, unleash Josh Carlson into the pro pits and dissect the big winners (and losers) from a dramatic R2.

 MoiMoiTV is such a gem. Partyboy and Mr Bomba are top notch additions. The TopGear/Grand Tour trio of the Enduro scene!

 100%, the Partyboy outro cracks me up every time ("you like that sh**?"). You sort of overlook that both Dimitri and Jose are crazy fast and professional racers.

 Pity EWS have handed a cease and desist to MTB Reel Guy he was getting some amazing clips of the riders. Super fresh footage and EWS have to ruin things and block people from making a living and providing riders clips to help grow the sport. Go give @mtbreelguy a follow and show him some love

 If EWS loses advertisers/sponsors/clicks to MT Bike Guy, what happens to EWS. It folds like many race organizations before them. They are just protecting their revenue stream. And before you say down with the corporations, without this corporation EWS racing would not exist.

 @fabwizard: guy was providing a service for all the privateers out there. EWS are only ever interested in showing the top 3 riders and the photographers are paid by the pro teams leaving privateers or non pros with zero footage of themselves.

You have awesome riders finishing in the top ten in the world but never hear anything about them.

If the EWS wants to grow or even keep going then it needs to also focus on riders outside the top 3. What’s the point in sponsors getting involved or riders or some racers even racing if there is literally zero media coverage of them.

 @CantQuitCartel: MT. Bike Guy could approach EWS and say exactly what you just did. And offer a fee and proof of insurance etc... Come up with a plan that shows how EWS will benefit.

He needs to show a win win situation to them.

 @fabwizard: Have you seen the sponsor list of the EWS and the entry fee for a round?? Or how much a vendor or team need to pay for a space in the event village or pits?? I am guessing not. The EWS revenue it astronomical. they will not be losing ANY money by allowing MTB Reel Guy to help promote the sport and help privateers get the coverage then need and deserve.

 @Scouse-Mouse: ok now what about expenses, permits, pricing, INSURANCE, salaries etc....

How much do those sponsors pay or do they just supply product and prizes.

If mt bike guy is doing this for profit then there is no reason he should not pay like everyone else

 @fabwizard: genuine question as I don’t know the answer but do photographers who post their photos on roots and rain etc have to pay the EWS?
  • 2 0
 @CantQuitCartel: no idea either, i was just being evils advocate for the other side of the equation.

Everyone here seems to hate anyone who makes a profit/protects a patent etc....

But without profit you would have very few businesses making/providing the things we love.

 With moimoi tv, melamed and other guys putting out such great content, EWS official videos seem quite boring and unprofessional, not showing the real thing...

 OMG the official pro stage commentary is so bad. I'm sorry guys I know you are trying but your format is absolutely horrendous and I fear what this means for the World Cup racing next year when the same outfit takes over the commentary from Rebel. You can guarantee it will be behind Discovery's paywall and if this is how the commentary will be I expect it will be. a disaster.

 Honestly, it's bad. Puts into perspective how good Warner really is, especially since he had that pro media training. He even gasp> makes the effort to pronounce riders' names correctly, unlike those two amateurs in EWS.

 To the editors of Friday Fails, Saturday Sends and Sunday Saves at Pinkbike: Have a look at the official EWS videos. That's how you end a video without letting the logos and links overlaying the actual video content ;-)
