The Fuji Factory Team made the trek to the West Virginia, to Snowshoe Mountain, for USA Enduro National Championships, where last year team manager Lauren Gregg and rider Jimmy Smith serendipitously met at the very same race. Amy Morrison also joined the team, and in just one year this crew of previous privateers formed Fuji Factory. They've been busy showing off that with hard work, and some serious love for riding bikes, these riders and their new bikes end up on podiums and can have a damn good time in the process, too. The fledgling team was proud to have athletes on both pro podiums on the National Championship stage, taking home double silver medals. (Are gold medals in the team's future for 2019? We think so!) Watch as they tackle the wet, techy, West Virginia trails and smash USA Enduro National Champs.

The Shimano techs not only help the team dial in their bikes, but also dial in their GoPro lines.

[Snowshoe Mountain offers steep, tight and incredibly rooty terrain. It's super challenging to ride in the wet, but riders were lucky for a break in the storm on race day!

 Yeah right. 50,000 articles about British nationals and we get this. I guess Aaron Gwinns broken thumb is a big middle finger to all of us Yanks.
