With Stage 1 complete and the riders coming back into the Silver Mountain Resort Village, we got out and checked in with some of the racers at the North American Enduro Cup to see what setup they were running for the race.
Tommy Magrath and his Evil Wreckoning
Tire Pressure: 28psi front, 28psi rear
Suspension Front: 76psi with a little extra HSC compared to normal riding to compensate for the roots at race speed
Suspension Rear: Push 11/6 with the two chambers set up for big hits and flow sections. Tommy is running a little extra rebound to help with the lips on some of the jumps on the course.
Carolynn Romaine and her Pivot Mach 6
Tires: Set up by feel
Suspension Front: Wide open: party mode!
Suspension Rear: 11/6 set up pretty much wide open
Kent Billingsly aboard his Rocky Mountain Altitude
Tire Pressure: 30psi front, 34psi rear
Suspension: 4th ride on the bike, so still tweaking a lot of things throughout the day! Case-in-point: Kent forgot to unlock his fork on Stage 1, and he thought he was running a 34t front chainring instead of the 36t he's pushing.
Kim Hardin and her Yeti SB6
Tire Pressure: 24psi front, 26psi rear
Front Suspension: Factory settings for the fork
Rear Suspension: Custom shim stack!

Tire Pressure: 30psi front, 35psi rear
Suspension Front: 110 psi and four volume spacers
Suspension Rear: 200psi with one volume spacer
Other: Running a full DH chainguide instead of a trail setup for the race today
Adrian Hopkins and Sarah Bender rocking their Carbon Transition Patrol's
Adrian's Tire Pressure: Set up by feel, but a little less air than usual for the race today
Adrian's Suspension Front: 55 psi, basically the same as a trail ride setup with some tweaks for race day by Lars at Transition!
Ardian's Suspension Rear: 35% sag
Sarah's Tire Pressure: 24psi Front, 26psi Rear
Sarah's Suspension: Set up according to Transition's suspension setup video!
Branham Snyder modeling his BMC Trailfox
Tire Pressure: 19psi front, 26psi rear
