Following Thursday’s wild day of racing where Melanie Pugin and Richie Rude took the win, the 2nd race of the EWS La Thuile took place this Sunday under blue skies, high temperatures and buzzing atmosphere.

Richie Rude and Jack Moir have been battling it out all week long. After all  Rude made a mistake on the 4th stage, allowing Moir to create a 12 second gap. In the final stage Jack Moir clocked the fastest time, and secured the overall.

Canadian Andreane Lanthier Nadeau was looking fast and on her way to continue her success from the Pro Stage despite an injured ankle. Sadly a crash on the fourth stage, followed by a mechanical and another crash took her out of the top ten. British prodigy Harriet Harnden, who has been riding at a steady pace all day,  gave it her all in the final stage and put a huge 9 seconds on the rest of the field, securing her first EWS win in the Elite category.
