We all know who won the overall titles but what about the actual Round 8 of the EWS? Here’s who topped the Italian podiums.

The women’s and men’s 21 titles were won by the usual suspects: Cecile Ravanel and Adrien Dailly respectively. So the main talking point of the Finale EWS was that Martin Maes finally won a round of the EWS.

Despite his name feeling like it’s been around a long time it is impressive to remember/realise that Maes is still only 19 years of age. His name is surely going to be on the EWS Champion’s roster sometime in the near future.

With each round a journey within itself, this final round was one of so many stories; retiring legends, new champions, first time winners. Finale Ligure, a place that has provided so many memorable moments, once again served up a tasty delight to end the season.”
