Nico Voullioz, currently ranked 2nd on the Enduro World Series, has sustained a scaphoid injury in practice that will keep him off of his bike for tomorrow's race. Everyone at Crankworx and the Enduro World Series wishes Nico a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back in action as soon as possible.
Following an incident during yesterday's official training, Fabien Barel has been assigned a 5 minute time penalty for a violation of the Outside Assistance Rules.
"Based on all of the evidence available and following both Fabien and his team's cooperation, the Chief Of Course has assigned Fabien a 5 minute penalty that will be attached to his overall time in tomorrow's event," says Crankworx General Manager and EWS Board Member Darren Kinnaird. "The EWS and Crankworx have worked tirelessly to ensure that we establish an ethos of fairness, mutual respect and equality between all competitors. Because of this, it is critical that we are diligent about enforcing our rules as effectively as we can. We would like to remind all athletes and teams to attend rider briefings and obey Crankworx Outside Assistance Regulations."
