EWS #5 Burke
The EWS world gathered in Burke (USA) last weekend, for the fifth round of the Enduro World Series season. The stages in Burke were physically demanding, and featured long pedalling sections, lots of rocks and general slipperiness.
After a fall on the Pro-Stage, Alex Rudeau took 26th place on the first day. Despite that bad start he managed to stay focused and progress on the second day. He finished the last two (and longest) stages on Sunday in 9th and 7th place. This result projected him up to 10th place overall.
Meanwhile, Guillaume Larbeyou changed his pre-run preparation in the hope to end his crash-streak. And it was successful! He finished all stages in the top 20, and he therefore took a great 11th place over the weekend. He said afterwards, “It feels good to finish a complete race on the bike. It gives me confidence and I can't wait for the next one.” Louis Jeandel also had some clean stages, in particular a 9th place on S2 and 6th on S5. He finished 14th overall.
