EWS Crans Montana | Liv Racing Report
with RAE MORRISON
Three weeks after the last stop of the Enduro World Series in the United States, athletes find themselves surrounded by the Valais Alps in Crans Montana, Switzerland.
Liv Racing Collective athlete Rae Morrison made the trip to Europe immediately after wrapping up her sixth place finish in Sugarloaf, Maine. Traveling to France, Rae caught the action at UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Les Gets followed by a stay in Morzine. Spending time lapping the bike park and doing interval sessions helped keep her fitness up and ready for the final two rounds of the series.
Crans Montana threw a little bit of everything at the athletes leading into the race, with changing conditions and even snow at the top of Saturday’s pro stage. With just over 36km to tackle over five stages with 3,375m of descending, Crans Montana provided an exciting venue for the penultimate race of the season. With tight racing among the women’s pro field, Rae finished the weekend in 8th.
We caught up with Rae to discuss the race before she jumps into training for finals in France.
