Whistler's Melamed one step closer to EWS overall title

On the back of an incredible season to date, Jesse Melamed is just two strong finishes away from winning the 2022 EWS overall title

After finishing third in the Enduro World Series (EWS) overall rankings in 2021, Whistler mountain biker Jesse Melamed looks to set a new personal best in 2022.

After starting the season with a first and two second-place finishes across the Series' first three stops, Melamed got his second win of the season when he returned home for EWS Whistler during Crankworx on Sunday, Aug. 7.

Without having much of a chance to celebrate the hometown win, Melamed caught a flight the following day to Burke, Vt. for the next race of the series on Aug. 13 and 14 before heading up the road to Sugarloaf, Maine for a race the following week on Aug. 20 and 21.

Taking a third- and first-place finish in those two races, respectively, Melamed currently sits atop the overall EWS standings, ahead of American rider Richard Rude Jr. 

With just two races left to go in the series, Melamed is primed for his first-ever EWS overall title. Currently sitting with a healthy 450-point cushion between him and Rude Jr., Melamed just has to continue the success he's seen so far this season to secure the win.

The next EWS race gets underway Sept. 17 in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, with the season wrapping up a week later in Loudenvielle, France on Sept. 24.
