The second stop in the 2013 Specialized SRAM Enduro Series took place in Riva del Garda, Italy. With harder tracks, longer climbs and a stronger rider's field than in Treuchtlingen the week before, participants had a great challenge ahead of them. In the end, three time Downhill World Champion Fabien Barel (Canyon Factory Enduro Team) and Fourcross World Champion Anneke Beerten (Specialized Racing Enduro Team) were the fastest riders of the day. Leading in the overall series now are Nicolas Lau and Anneke Beerten.

 HOLY Sh*t, Dan Atherton is smiling must be awesome... but the whole 2 helmets thing is lame, do you really need to wear your XC helmet road riding uphill to the trailhead ( with your DH helmet on your back ) ??

 I agree, two helmets is over kill. I just rock a bandana to the top of the hill.

 Most cycling events I've been to require you to have a helmet on at all times if you're a participant and you're on your bike. If there's a 30 minute climb or however long, I'd carry two if a FF is required to race.

 I'm not talking about Dan with regards to the 2 helmets, yes I remember, he's a tough guy. I was making a joke about a rare smile in the vid. Other riders had the 2 helmet thing going.

 You can go with One helmet, if it is Full Face. But you Must Wear it then all the Time. Manufactures should bring Real enduro helmets. Click on Full Face Protection. The uphill was on a narrow road. Much Car traffic. Sometimes between car mirrors and wide mtb Bars was only a few inches left.

 Yah, there could be a convertible helmet full face just push a button and the full face drops down and vise versa to lift up and out of the way!!!

 The terrain is really rough and rocky but it's so much fun to ride there. You can't really control where to go on the Trail, just the raw direction but that's soooo much fun. Props to Fabien and Canyon for the win...and you see, you don't need a full Carbon Enduro Bike for 8000 € to be good Wink

 Santa Barbara has the elevation, terrain and views so simular to this. I just wish the powers that be would open their eyes and minds to the world and entertain the idea of a true World Enduro event of worthy terrain here in the states. Unfortunately I dont see it happening any time soon. One can dream.
