 After a long winter's rest you can see this special genus of biker gather near the narrow tracks in the woods. These peculiar creatures of the forest battle for position in the troops hierarchy by flaunting their matching neon colored garments and by competing for the lowest tire pressures. They spend most of their time working on their bikes with primitive tools, but when they have finished the repairs they set off on the trails again to break those very same bikes. They usually ride these forest tracks as a troop, shouting much like apes do. These brightly colored forest dwellers are a specialized genus of mountainbikers, they are endubros.

 More vids like this please. As someone who is super Endurocurious this was very informative. And that's one hech of a loop from town and back just for a casual ride. Racing it would be brutal.

 That drop in to start stage one looks super gnarly. Nice welcome back to race season. "Welcome to the Jungle" played in my head watching that start.

 @jor4s: @Maverickdh00: Richard Cunynghame decided to call it quits after 3 seasons. Ric McLaughlin and sometimes Tracy Moseley will handle commentary. I'm sure we will see @Cunny again.
