Here's your race summary.
Another EWS this weekend, this time in Spain. Pretty cool that Martin Maes won a World Cup DH a couple of weeks ago and is a top contender in almost any EWS, with several stage wins and a couple of race wins.
Rude had a good day today finally. He's had a solid run of stage wins in the last few events, but he's also had major mechanicals setting him back 20 or more spots at those same races. I hope he can hold his position tomorrow.
And the interwebs are all a-flutter about Martin Maes stopping to help Sam Hill fix a flat. I think it was after a stage, not during it, but pretty cool gesture nonetheless.
Here are some pretty pictures and a few more details.

EWS Spain - I miss On Track with Curtis Keene. Red Bull should sign Richie Rude and come back with him next year for season 5.
Richie Rude took the win. Puts him in 10th overall for the series.
Ravanel remains undefeated. She did much less DH this year than I had hoped for. Her concentration on Enduro is paying off though.
Ravanel is just... savage... the times between her and the rest of the field are just mindblowing.
The Finale in Finale...
Here are the results from Finale:
It would be rude of me to say more.
Perfect season for Ravanel
Just like Moseley and Rachel Atherton. ACC before them. It seems the women's field is typically dominated by one individual.
Isabeau Courdurier had a clean sweep of second place this season. Final round she won stages 1 and 2 could have upset Ravanel if she closed out the final stage stronger.
@herzalot ..... it's 2019. Are you done with EWS?
No. I checked in on the results. Martin Maes is the world's best mt biker right now. Richie Rude has an asterisk and did not race. Sam Hill either wasn't there or didn't factor in.
I want Maes to go win a WC XCO race now to add to his DH, EWS, 4-Cross and Dual Slalom. Graves did once I think.
@herzalot San Hill dnf, i think he went up to stage 3. I guess he was sick or something, I think maybe a crash and dropped way down in the results.
Back to back EWS weekends... looking forward to the course preview in a couple short days.
Hey Stubborn - Welcome aboard!
Thanks! All 6 Stages for Tazmania...
Figured the rest would be fine as regular links.. but it makes them media links anyway. My apologies.
Stage 6: https://youtu.be/FEmVSaHzCF4
Day 1 w/ 13k+ of climbing. Oh my, #goals. The cacti on the trails is very cool to see.
And we're back...
Long first stage....
Sucks about Martin Maes having his first two wins stripped because he opted to save his leg from infection at his ER doc's recommendation. EWS/UCI have an exception rule for prescribed meds, they should have implemented it.
I can’t stop ogling the scenery on the last video!!!
"Maybe the most special place to ride your bike on Earth..."
Wow! Just.... wow!
I need to ride some of those trails, and I need to NEVER ride some of those trails!
Top of the world as the first and only stage on day one.... Epic
Wish I would have competed in this! Next time for sure!
EWS Zermatt < that's a link. Click it for magnificent views.
Results are in.
Spoiler alert - nobody from IMTB won a single stage, or the overall!
