Jack Moir (Canyon Collective) has become the third Australian to win the Enduro World Series at the final round of the Vittoria EWS Tweed Valley in Scotland at the weekend.
In his first full season of the EWS, the Novocastrian finished with five race wins ensuring the title would stay in an Australian's hands after Sam Hill owned the crown from 2017-1019 and Jared Graves in 2014.
It would all come down to the final round of the series with Moir and Richie Rude (Yeti?Fox Factory Team) the title contenders.
Rude was the first to drop in the Pro Stage and was looking fast his campaign came to an abrupt end after leaving the course markings resulted in a disqualification.
Series leader Moir would go on to win the stage, setting him up with a three second advantage for Sunday’s four stages.
A crash on the first stage of the day saw Moir’s race chances slip, with Martin Maes (GT Factory Racing) taking both the stage and the race lead.
From here on in it was Maes’ race to lose] putting down the power to win his first race this season by over six seconds. Jesse Melamed (Rocky Mountain Race Face Enduro Team) would win two stages to be rewarded with second place with Adrien Dally (Lapierre Zipp Collective) rounding out the top three.
Fourth enough to seal the 2021 deal for Moir.
Canyon Collective finished the season with an impressive points lead to be named Overall Team Champions.
There was also another Aussie on the top step Leonie Picton (Liv Cycling) claiming the overall Women Masters title.
The 2022 season will kick off back in the Tweed Valley next June, when the Championship battle begins all over again.
