Premek Tejchman dropping into the start of stage one.
Chris Johnson, at home on the loam at the top of stage one.
Stage one green screen.
Jared Graves sporting matching socks and booties.
Joe Barnes was on the hunt again for an EWS podium. Sixth for the day, beating out his teammate Fabien Barel by 1.5 seconds. Pretty darn close for fifty minutes of racing.
Florian Nicolai, yet another French man killing it on the EWS circuit. Time to re-think my take on wine and cheese as a main course.
Top of the world in Whistler BC.
Josh Carlson winning stage two. His sticker on his handlebars say it all: "Seize this moment."
Joe Barnes. My camera really seems to like him.
Stage four's top section was all out smooth sailing on Whistler's newest trail.
Pro photographer, or pro rider. These days it's hard to tell the difference. Adrian Marcoux. F*ckin' eh rights bud.
Nico Lau, Nico Vouilloz, and Mark Scott heading up the Whistler Creekside gondola for stage four.
Yoann Barelli with a head full of steam on stage four.
Richie Rude on stage four.
Anita Gehrig flashing through the trees on stage five.
Isabeau Courdurier taking third for the day.
Anneke Beerten, fourth for the day. Not bad for coming off a recent knee injury.
Always nice to see CG still killing it.
Alexandre Cure hopping down stage five.
Hulk smash berms. Richie Rude added five PSI to his tires on stage five, specifically so he could put the pain to the Whistler Bike Park.
EWS winners podium from left: Yoann Barelli, Cecille Ravanel, Richie Rude, Tracy Moseley, Jared Graves, Isabeau Courdurier.

Great photos! Does anyone know if there are pictures of the amateur categories as well somewhere? So far I've only seen pictures of the pros, but there were people on course all day probably shooting 100s or 1000s of photos. I guess it will take a while to sort those out, but it would be nice to know where to look for them in the next couple days.

One of the Crankworx photographers Scott Robarts has a good amount of amateurs. Give him time. We have lots to get through for deadlines.

I wonder how the SB6c rides with a coil rear shock. I was afraid that there wouldn't be enough ramp-up/progression if the bike was designed for an air shock. It seemed to have worked for Yeti this round.

Just set it up for perfect midstroke support and forget about the rest (is what they are doing probably)

with an IFP it's not too hard to set up a progressive EOS.

Was the bike designed for an air shock? That would surprise me, considering people loved to put coils on the "old" SB66's

I will get neg propped for this but look at the body language of Nico Lau, Nico Vouilloz, and Mark Scott (10th from bottom), they are nervous, I thought only amateurs like me got nervous before a race.

You can't be serious mate. If anything they should be more nervous, it is their job to ride their bike fast and beat people, so of course they will be apprehensive about going in and racing for their pay check!
(Aug 11, 2015 at 21:57)
Good point. My idea of not being nervous if due to the fact that they race regularly. That helped my nerves as i was younger. But you are right their stakes are higher.

Great photos Margus! Unbelievably rich. Any one of them would make great desktop, calendar or POD material! Thank you (Ooops, I just ran out of exclamation points)...

Holy Crap, PB! Best EWS-porn ever. I need a higher resolution monitor to do these photos justice!

Awesome pics! Great to see such a close race over 50min of racing!!!

The pic of Anneke...what is that guy holding out in his hand?
(Aug 10, 2015 at 22:40)
a DSLR with a fisheye lens.
