The Enduro World Series landed in the French Alpine town of Val d'Isere for the penultimate round of the series.
Jerome Clementz and Tracey Moseley come into this race with a strong hold on the title leads but there is some strong competition chasing down those gaps.
After crashing badly at the opening round Anne Caroline Chausson is back and ready to chase T-Mo down on this 5 stage race over two days of racing. Jared Graves is also the rider to watch in the men's race, he put in such a stormer in Whistler that it is just his bad luck with mechanicals that have left him out of the top medal spot. Justin Leov also made a big impression in this race and we will hopefully see him back on the race scene next year. It was a mechanical for him that lost him a bunch of time but he was flying everywhere else.
After winning in Punta Ala and then losing time due to a penalty in Whistler Fabian Barel was back on the podium for this round taking the 3rd spot behind Clementz and Graves.
This race also incorporated the Enduro of Nations and with both Men's and Women's victories going to the French teams. The UK women took the 2nd position with a solid effort from T-Mo, Emily Horridge and Katy Winton.
