    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.

    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.
