Jun 17, 2017
by Ben Winder  

It’s day two here in Canazei at the second round of the Superenduro, and as the weather held off the tracks all started to dry out; with another day of sunshine here forecast it’s going to be a dusty dry race come Sunday.

With over 500 entries is one of the most populated races the Superenduro has ever seen. The variation in the trails here is going to make for a tough but exciting race, we have a mix of bikepark, technical, steep, fresh trails and short punchy climbs a well rounded riders will take the win on Sunday.

First thing this morning riders headed to town for the sign on.
