This is the first year that the Enduro World Series has two stops in South America. Last weekend we found ourselves in Chile, and now we’re already back at it just a little more than six hours away from the village of Corral in the city of Bariloche Argentina.
The view from the last stage is impressive, the number of colors that can be seen from here can not be compared with any other order, very far away on the horizon you can see the Andes mountain range which divides Chile and Argentina.
The speed and control of this girl is impressive, it seems that neither dust nor blown out tracks affect her. Cecile Ravanel was the undisputed winner of the day in the Women’s afterwinning three of three stages.
Later in the day the orange light starts to slip away through the branches of the forest, Nico Lau cruising into the fourth place on the day.
The strength and poise with which Richie Rude attacks the track is mighty impressive. He almost thrives on tracks that are blown out and more difficult. Even more impressive considering he’s still so young. Richie was the leader of the first day, winning two of three stages, only being passed in the last stage by the Spaniard Toni Ferreiro.
