POV with EWS Race Winner Hattie Harnden

by 0

Winning an EWS is no easy feat. Especially if you’re under 21, and up against some of the best enduro riders in the world. Young Brit, Hattie Harnden took the win over the weekend out in La Thuile. Riding for Trek Factory Racing she’s one to watch. Jump on board with her as she rides the full length of the Queen Stage at Vittoria EWS La Thuile.

Harriet is the youngest woman to win an EWS. Even more impressive considering it was the second race of the week.

If Lanthier Nadeau’s seven second win on the Pro Stage seemed impressive, it became even more so when she revealed she’d sustained a dislocated ankle in the process. Undeterred, she took to the start on Sunday and would go on to extend her overall race lead to nine seconds heading into the final stage, only for a crash to rob her of her first EWS win.

Harriet Harnden (Trek Factory Racing) was having a better day at the office – winning the first stage of Sunday’s race as well as the last, which was enough to propel her to the win – her first in the Pro Women field. Melanie Pugin had to settle for second place, just one second behind Harnden. Isabeau Courdurier (Lapierre Zipp Collective) rounded out the podium in third.

Hattie Harnden on Winning Round Four

Talking about the win on her Instagram, Harriet said:

My dream became a reality today. My first elite women’s @world_enduro win! I haven’t yet found the words to describe this moment, however I do know this… l feel like the luckiest person in the world because I have this team and everyone else in my life behind me, helping make this happen!

An amazing day of racing at an incredible venue, I can’t wait to come back. Made even more exciting by the super close racing, with less than a second between @melanie_pugin and I at the finish!

Already looking forward to the next @world_enduro in September, bring it on
