EWS: Who Will Win in Whistler?

Hill’s win at Aspen’s round six saw him take the series lead from Frenchman Adrien Dailly and the steep and technical Whistler trails should favour the Aussie too. A couple of tough rounds this season saw Jared Graves further down the ladder than expected, however, his 3rd from Aspen has bumped him into the top 10.

Wollongong’s Josh Carlson missed the first two rounds as he recently became a father of two, but good results in Ireland and Aspen see him inside the top 50. He currently resides just down the road in Vancouver so hopefully, he’ll see another good result on his ‘home trails’ where he finished 3rd in 2016. The reigning Australian National Enduro champ, Mt Beauty’s Chris Panozzo, has also had a sporadic season with his best finish so far being 23rd in Derby, seeing him ranked just outside the top 50. The EWS Dark Horse, James ‘Cannonball’ Hall, is the next best Aussie in 64th.

Josh Carlson placed 3rd at the Whistler EWS last year

During Crankworx Whistler’s always swarming with Aussies so there will also be a handful of World Cup downhillers who are up for a long day in the saddle. Josh Button, Jordan Prochyra, Shelly Flood and Tegan Molloy are all riders to watch. See a full list of Aussie starters below.
