Jared Graves had a tough first day. After a faceplant at the bottom of a climb on Stage 2 and a near flat tyre on Stage 3, Graves finished in third place behind Justin Leov.

However, a punctured tyre on Stage 5 the next day pushed a dismayed Leov out of the competition, leaving Jared Graves room to storm ahead and claim first place.

The course pushed even the best riders to their limit, with an overall 6000m of timed descending. It got the better of many including EWS managing director Chris Ball who came round this corner a little too fast…
