California Enduro Series Announces Registration Details and New Initiatives
Awesome! I love the Cali Enduro races! As a "Pro" trying to make a career of it, my only complaint is that I can only go to two of the six events (China Peak and Northstar) because ALL of the others directly conflict with the EWS dates. Can we change dates next season so there are no conflicts with the EWS? Thanks! -Evan

North American Enduro Cup 2016
It sounds great, but I have one unanswered question...How much prize money is there? This detail is not on the site. The potential to earn a title is great, but if enduro racers are to actually be able to make a living as "professionals" there needs to be prize money especially at what is supposed to be North America's premier event? With $140 entry fees at this event there should be a LARGE cash payout. California Enduro Series is already making good progress towards this. I know first place at the China Peak Enduro last year was a cool $1,000 and the purse pays out healthily all the way through 15th place in both Men's and Women's categories. Equal pay too! A friend of mine got second place in pro women and received $700 for her efforts. Pretty sure they are doing the same thing this year for China Peak as well as Northstar and Mammoth.

Santa Cruz Hightower - First Ride
No Float X2 clearance issues. The low setting combined with a longer (57mm) stroke shock does not work though. The rear tire bottoms out on the seat-tube before full-travel. Currently at full bottom-out in the high position there is about 3-5mm of clearance between my 2.30" Highroller II and the seat-tube which isn't much. Running it this way definitely voids the warranty and is NOT recommended. This is a temporary experiment to satisfy my own long-travel curiosity.
