Lapierre 2015: Three Trailbikes, an Enduro Racer and the Team's New DH Weapon
Got a 2014 527 am as I thought with a few upgrades changes it would be an awesome bike. Upgraded forks to pike 150. Brakes to xt . kranks to xt so I co go 1x10 shorter stem an 150mm carbon bars. It is now a brilliant bike. The Fox 32s where so wrong for that bike. The boys at Lappierre need a slap for spacing them. Looks like everyone else thought so and they've listened

On Track: Behind The Racing With Curtis Keene Episode 4
Curtis Keene comes across as a really sound dude. Be it his attitude to riding the schlomp, ( a thing most likely very alien to him) his high fiving Greg Callaghan after a stellar first day or for just having the Craic and bants with the Irish lads. It's possible with a surname like Keene there a bit of craic and bants in the genes though

Gooded yes that comment wasn't aimed at you at all. I just want Enduro to stay Enduro and not get watered down into some version of XC sprints. Steep tracks or not Enduro will always be different to DH due to the level of practice you can do on the trails. In DH you get to practice one track however steep or technical to level where you have developed your line to within an inch the lenght of the track. The nature of Enduro doesn't allow this. I do agree though stages should be balanced between steep or peddley and I would be a proponent of one blind stage. That way you get the complete rider doing well

NZ is renowned for its trails. I don't doubt it for a second. Only referring to what appeared in the actual video.

Those tails didn't look steep at all. I'm guessing there was a lot of peddling involved. I don't think you have to take his 3 times as steep comment literally but all enduro races should aspire to be on tracks similar to EWS. I think people need to get over the "Enduro is for everyone" attitude. It is a Race not a fun cycle. They are designed to find this strongest most technically gifted rider in the pack. To do this you need courses that challenge both skills and physical ability. Modern enduro bikes are perfectly capable for down hill even in its pure form. Check Jarred's world cup result. Last weekend here there was a winter league DH race and half the field where on enduro bikes. All the podiums contained a mix of riders equipped with either a Dh or Enduro bike. If anything there is a case that DH is being dummed down. . There are plenty of options out there for riders who don't like steeps or jumps.
