Max made the switch to enduro racing from DH three years ago in order to experience more than just the DH track while riding. Calling Geneva, Switzerland, home he has an abundance of terrain nearby for training.Since the last EWS in Finale Ligure, Max took a good bit of time off to recover from his crash (video of that here
), and hang around home with friends. After all, it had been a very strange season, and with the shortened schedule Max chose to leave it all on the track and go all-out rather than play it safe. Unfortunately that tactic didn't really pay off this time.
For the offseason, he has a few media projects in the works and is staying flexible to see what the schedule looks like next season. Now? He's just spending all the time he can on his Stumpjumper.
