Canadian Enduro

Day 10 – Canadian Open Enduro presented by Kona Highlights from Crankworx on Vimeo.


Legendary racer Nicolas Vouilloz was 17 seconds down to Lopes following stage 2 climb--Lopes got some XC legs going this summer with BC Bike Race and was full gas on that climb--but Nico gained back 13 of those seconds in stage 5--a chunk of change for sure but not enough to take the win.

 The picture of Troy and Brendan makes me think "Reynolds twins transition from evil BMX villains to synchronized DH riders in order to impress Crew Jones' girlfriend Aunt Becky from Full House".
