Video: California Enduro Series Round 1 Race Recap with Randy

Jul 22, 2021
by DirtFaceTours  


Here is an in-depth look at what went down at the first round of the California Enduro series at China Peak Ski resort. The race was also an EWS Qualifier, so riders had the opportunity to earn points to race in future EWS events. Randy gets his heckle on, interviews the riders and enjoys a rowdy weekend on track watching everyone send it.

China Peak Ski resort is in the central Sierra Nevada Mountain range just east of Fresno and has been on the CES tour for the last nine years. Top-level pros showed up from all over the western united states to battle it out over five loose, physical, and rowdy stages.

The goal was to show the vibe and atmosphere of this special event. Capture the camp scene, parking lot parties, swimming, fishing, and everything else that makes this event so unique.

I hope you all enjoy.

There was an excessive amount of carnage on stage 5 as it was the gnarliest and most challenging track on the entire course.

 China Peak, Big Sky, Silver Mtn, and Angelfire would make for the firemost U.S. Enduro series.

 I was wondering the same thing. I guess the author doesn’t know what a lot lizard really is.

 The middle rock in the final pic of Cody looks like a serious wheel grabber.
