Well the weather outside looked frightful but Sunday was so delightful!
With a lack lustre forecast, buckets of rain earlier in the week, flooded streets, and heavy cloud cover, conditions for the 2019 Canmore Enduro looked like they'd be less than ideal. Come race day the sun was out, the trails had shed off the vast majority of the precipitation, and the fun knob was cranked to eleven.
These events are as intricate as putting on a wedding with a couple hundred guests... Only instead of focussing on two people leaving happy, two people and some incredible volunteers were making sure that everyone involved had a smile on their face by the end of the weekend.
Riders were treated to tech and flow on some of the best trails in Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park. Storms earlier in the week were now just memories, but some intermittent greasy bits of trail and a few thunder claps would keep riders honest and remind them of just how gruesome things could have been. When it counted most, the sun shone brightly, there were amazing good vibes in the park, and nothing else really matters. All's well that ends well!
