Valloire, France (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
Jared Graves wins round three of the Enduro World Series, and takes the overall series lead. Valloire has been the host of the French Enduro Series from the sport’s outset, becoming one of the most sought after and respected Enduro races in France over the past 10 years, but this was a first for the Valloire to host the Enduro World Series.
Being the fist time the Enduro World Series stopped in Valloire, riders were faced with six stages held over two days on some steep, technical terrain often covered with sharp edged rocks.
After some difficulties with mechanicals and crashes on the first day Graves found himself in third place overall, and a little more than 33-seconds behind the leader. On Day 2 he was able to ride somewhat conservatively, claw himself into the lead and hang on to the win by 3.5-seconds after 1h 20m of racing.
“After Saturday’s tough luck with a crash and slow leak in tire, I won a bike race on some little wheels today, pretty happy with that,” said Graves. Playing the safe game pays off sometimes - no mechanicals today...yewwwww!”
Graves now leads the Enduro World Series and will carry this lead to the next round on July 12-13 in La Thuile, Italy.
