Enduro World Series #1 Prologue results, videos and pictures

Posted by Caleb Smith on Sunday May 19 2013


The Enduro World Series has begun! The prologue for the Superenduro Powered by SRAM race was held in the town of Castiglione della Pescaia and it was an intense day of racing for all. Riders tackled a fast course down through the town’s medieval streets.

Everyone expected the top fifteen riders to hold their places, but nobody would have predicted a win for France’s Alex Cure (Yeti – Urge Team), denying his countrymen Fabien Barel (Canyon Factory Team) and Cedric Gracia (SantaCruz – CG Racing Brigade).

The first Italian was Alex Lupato (Lapierre – FRM), in ninth place and determined to finish tomorrow further up the classification. Anne Caroline Chausson (Ibis) not only dominated the women’s competition, but placed 67th in the men’s field!

The real racing starts at 8.30 tomorrow morning in the Puntala Camping Resort!
