 Dang, 50th on the last stage? Talk about taking a cruise.... The reward for 1st on every other stage!
  • + 3
 @Idaho: looked like it was a very short stage. The time gap between 50th and 3rd wasn't even all that large.

 @bridgermurray: awesome to see Keene get the boost from Graves that Specialized was hoping for by the look of it. Been a long hard few years for that fella, good to see work paying off.

 you actually have to have 'been there' before ya can be 'back'. i don't know who's daughter this guy married, but............................. keene has never 'been there'..................ever. he should count his lucky horseshoes he even got this result.
  • + 6
 @stacykohut: I've met Curtis Keene and he's a really nice guy. Why are you being a prick?
  • + 5
 @stacykohut: and I'm also pretty sure that "luck" isn't much of a factor at the highest levels of mountain bike racing, you don't luckily get in the top 5 at an EWS.
  • + 1
 @stacykohut: keene placed 12th in 2013 and 12th again 2014 and was 45th in 2015 I call this year a come back. Your just a troll kohut

 @powergavin: troll? nah...

just not a fan of the racer.
i like him as much as i like jeff gordon or tony schumacher or trey canard.

for us grown ups, talking trash about racing is called bench racing.

i'm sure keene is a nice man, he just blows chunks as a racer in my view.
  • + 3
 @stacykohut: us grown ups lmao I am 45. how old are you boy you think keenes not much of a racer lol in uk people like you have a special name its called nob ed

 @powergavin: Don't pay attention.
This guy, (stacykohut) is probably so angry at its own life ,that gets his kicks at making ohers miserable
By the look of his pictures I think I know why.

 There must have been a lot of drama going down on day 2 according to the results sheet.
Despite Graves and Ravanel there`s been quite a mixup.
- Anita Gehring becoming 2nd
- Clementz etching Maes of the Podium
- Graves and Lau with average results on the last two stages.
- behind Graves the top 5 within 14sec
- relatively unknown british rider taking the last stage win
- Rude injured 3rd on the 2nd to last.

Can´t wait for the stories behind that Smile
Oh, how I like enduro racing, there´s just so much more than who has won.

 I'm really stoked for Graves. After so many bad luck outcomes this is good to see. I'm still waiting for more details about Rude. What is the matter with him?
  • + 31
 @grampa, he separated his shoulder in practice, so he was racing the stages blind and likely in a fair amount of pain. Good thing he's tough.
  • + 6
 @mikekazimer: Damn tough.
  • + 4
 Graves!!! Keene!!!! Gotta feel good for Graves getting past the mechanicals and Keene training hard with Graves has shown off!!! Good to see young Martin Maes back in it after injury grand Rude were toe to toe in the first few !!!!

 I know that this is on US home soil, but there are a lot of fast and unsponsored North American women riders on this list.many faster than a couple of sponsored ones (w'out knowing what happened in each & everyone's race).
When I watch the world cup today; I wonder where the north American female pro riders are when clearly the talent pool is large. I mean you still have JillKintner representing well into a long career but where are the younger riders? The talent pool and number of.pros for French and British riders seem to make sense.

 Big shout out to Nick and his crew from BME, great event, awesome hospitality. Great job, and thanks for being so accommodating!

 Man, soo pumped for Keene and Maes! It's cool to see those two finally live up to their potential. Maybe not full potential, Maes definitely has so much more in store, but you guys know what I mean Wink Keep. It. UP!!

 Cecile Rudeanel dominating once again...

 Holy heck! She killed it more than Graves!

 Bummed about Rude wiping put in practice. Onto the next round and he'll be dominating again

 What happened with Rude?
  • + 1
 Why did the pro women not do stage 6 when everyone one else did?
  • + 1
 I think it was weather related
  • + 4
 The gondola was closed for a bit plus a spectator was hit by a rider and there was a long course hold. Hope the spectator is okay, he got smoked crossing the course at the wrong time and place.
  • + 15
 @NoahColorado: well then i'd rather hope the rider is ok...
  • + 5
 @NoahColorado: It wasn't Jared Graves that got hit again, was it?

What...too soon?

Seriously, I hope the spectator and rider emerged unscathed.
  • + 2
 A pro women had a serious crash and closed the course down. Many pro women were on course and had to stop. Due to various reason they didn't have them re run it.
  • + 3
 @aemorri11: Yikes - that sucks. I retract my lame joke.
  • + 1
 Ok thanks, I was just looking at the full results and was found it odd, that the U21 women did stage 6 but pros didn't so figured something must had happened.

 Graves has a pb cheering team like Semenuks. Good to see Clementz and Absalon tho
