bigquotesI'm really excited to be part of the Specialized Global Enduro Program for 2013 and beyond, Specialized has put an amazing program together along with SRAM and Troy Lee Designs to give me the best equipment and support possible. I'm very grateful for the opportunity and looking forward to racing. The season can't get here fast enough - let's do this! - Curtis Keene

Defending 4X World Champion Anneke Beerten is also excited about the 2013 Enduro season stating:

bigquotesAfter a couple of successful seasons in 4-cross and winning the World Championships back-to-back I'm looking forward to defending my rainbow jersey and to change my focus to enduro racing. I am really excited to join the Specialized Racing Factory Enduro team, a team and brand that share the same passion as I do for racing and riding bikes. With Specialized on my side, and the best bikes to ride, I am convinced that it is going to be a great new season!
