No one ever said the French leg of the Enduro World Series was going to be easy. With tricky fast descents and insanely steep terrain, there was bound to be a few crashes and punctures.
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.

Meanwhile in women’s heats, Tracy Moseley remained unbeatable for the second time after beating rival Anne-Caro Chausson by over two minutes. Moseley remained strong the whole weekend, finishing first in five out of six stages.
