Final Results: EWS Madeira 2019

May 12, 2019 at 2:27
by Ed Spratt  
What a day for Ella Conolly. Ella finished in second her best result to date.

The third round of the 2019 EWS series is over and despite some hotly contested racing across the weekend, the results would be the same as the previous two rounds. Martin Maes and Isabeau Courdurier are dominating this year and with leads of 32 and 53.25 seconds respectively at the end of the weekend they were pretty much untouchable. Despite the series leaders domination of the race, there would be breakout results from privateer Ella Conolly who took her first Elite stage win and first Elite overall podium after finishing in third position. In the Elite Men, a great performance by Jose Borges who put in some incredible times across the weekend would finish second when he crossed the line on stage eight. Reigning champion Sam Hill was closer to the top this weekend but he couldn't find that extra bit of speed to topple the unstoppable Maes.

STAGE 4


After the first stage of the day, Martin Maes continues his domination of the Elite Men's competition with another stage win by almost three seconds. Adrien Dailly managed a third-place finish despite having stitches overnight after a crash on day one. Ed Masters got the closest to Maes on stage four but he was still a long way off the pace of the series leader. In the Elite Women's race privateer, Ella Conolly would take her first Elite EWS stage win over Isabeau Courdurier by just 0.15 seconds. The top four female riders would be separated by just 1.02. It looks like we have some exciting competition ahead of us today.

STAGE 5


Results

Martin Maes has taken his first stage defeat of the weekend. The series leader is currently sitting in fourth but he is still leading the overall. Jesse Melamed took his first stage win in Madeira, can he keep his speed for the rest of the day? In the Elite Women, it was back to business as usual for Isabeau Courdurier who took back the top spot after missing out to Ella Conolly on stage four. Noga Korem came closest to the Frenchwoman just 0.07 off the pace.

5th. Sam Hill: +31.27



STAGE 6


Isabeau Courdurier went back to dominated the women's field on stage six with an almost five second lead of Noga Korem. Ella Conolly would have a mechanical while on stage and would fall back to 15th position, can she reclaim some of the lost time and still finish on the podium at the end of the day? In the Elite Men, Martin Maes would lose out on another stage by almost a second to Jesse Melamed. Jesse had a great race in Madeira in 2017 until a huge mechanical took him out of the race, it looks like he is hoping to make up for that disaster today.

STAGE 7 (Queen)


Both series leaders are back to winning stages with impressive wins by both riders. In the Elite Men Jose Borges would put down an incredible run that seemed unbeatable by anyone that isn't Martin Maes. Ed Masters would sit over five seconds back from Borges in third. Isabeau Courdurier would extend her winning margin with a 2.09 seconds gap to ALN and a 3.9 gap to third-placed Noga Korem. Ella Conolly would be back near the top again with a fourth-place finish on stage seven.

 Such a shame we didn't see Maes race in Maribor with his current form...

 I think he made the right choice to focus on EWS with the start he has had to the season. This must be his dream season coming true!

 There’s no such thing as “his current form”,a genius is a genius all the time! ????????????

 @Fred10195: Skills are always there, but when someone gets on a hot streak their confidence goes through the roof and they become hard to beat. Bryceland is the prime example, but there are many others who after their first win become a bit unstoppable (Hart in 2016 is another good one).

 @NickB01: Amaury Pierron last year.

 I have to say I'm really disappointed by Maes on stages 5 and 6. That 2.83 seconds given up is completely unacceptable.

 Maes takes 6 out of 8 stages, Melamed takes the other 2. Borges was top 10 in all 8 stages and top 3 in 6 of those stages. Maes is an alien !

 Does anyone talk about the EWS100 ? Our local rider Pedro Silva did a 20th overall among the pros, chainless on ss7 and with a flat tire on ss8 .. probably a top 10 without mechanical problems

 Martin is such a smart racer...seems to chill it out toward the end stages and coast on in for the overall without risking to much. .what a champion!!

 How many stages did he win this weekend?

 Martin Maes killing it!

 So much for that Remy Gauvin win prediction
  • + 6
 To be fair, it’s a lot of pressure to open up Pinkbike and see that you’re the chosen wildcard to win a race despite Martin Mars being in full-on beast mode. 12th is pretty darn good and he moved up quite a few spaces from day one. Also - big props to Melamed and Leigh Johnson on Pole putting in a top 10!

 Decent OTB on Stg 3 probably hasn't helped.

 Damn 29" rear wheels

 If you look at the top 5 riders they are only like 15/30 seconds behind after 23 minutes of racing, that is like only 1% to 2% slower.

 @ibishreddin: since when is a second per minute a tonne of time? Even in downhill a second per minute is not a "tonne" of time.

 What happened to Sam Hill? He had a fantastic day of racing, and cracked the top five in the whole wide world. That's what happened to Sam Hill.

I hope he never learns about all the fanboys that are disappointed when he doesn't get 1st 1st 1st in everything, even in the line for a beer after.

 @freeriderayward: I ride the same bike as he does, well the 2018 Factory 290 Mega. I wanted to see if it had made a difference to the 27.5. I have 2 29ers and 2 27.5 and see the benifits of both. If he got a puncture then thats just bad luck.

 Barring a mishap or mechanical - I predict Maes will win every stage at every event.

 But he already hasn’t won every stage - just every race
  • + 2
 @Carlharl: Oh no! Prediction sank! Okay, every race.
  • + 2
 @neimbc: bold prediction. Sam Hill had won all three races by this stage last year too and just as convincingly. Then he didn't need to won them anymore so he didn't. I'd imagine the same thing will happen with Martin.
  • + 2
 @humoroususername: Not so sure - Sam is a seasoned Vet - and I'm sure he would have loved to win them. Martin is young and hungry - wouldn't doubt he'd go for Nino Shurter style dominance and clean house.
