This is Enduro…

May 21, 2009

AVcup_logoUndoubtedly one of my favourite MTB race concepts, too hard for a XC bike and too soft (?) for a downhill monster. What you need is a All Mountain (or Enduro) trail bike, light enough for the uphill sections but at the same time strong and effective for the downhill sections.

Bike Enduro races are mainly composed of downhill timed stages interconnected by several kilometers of (normally) uphill trails, the winner is the fastest rider in the downhill sections which also completed the interconnection stages within the established limit times.

Have a look at our All Mountain Addict Delicious bookmarks for the video coverage of the Avalanche Cup 2009 / round#2 –  Kielder Enduro (race results here).
