Racing moved along at a brisk pace during the Enduro. No bitching about the track s miles of fire road just pure racing.
Adam Craig rocking the Giro Air Attack Aero lid... Wind tunnel proven to be X amount more aerodynamic than a standard helmet. That and a fanny pack are the it Enduro specific racing items for 2014--get yours now or risk being ostracized for being out of fashion.
Return of a legend Marla Streb racing the Enduro.
Marco Osborne of WTB Cannondale getting some Pre EWS Chile loose over hard practice in today.
Didn t you get the memo The Enduro won t be raced on a closed course. Ali Goulet practicing his passing skills on stage two of the Sea Otter Enduro.
Fat bikes were everywhere--including the Enduro. Maybe they are the new hot thing but the sheer number of them being raced was a bit overwhelming. The do certainly roll faster than one might expect but they re just not the bike most mountain bike riders are willling to admit to owning.
Teal Stetson-Lee of Luna Chix going Enduro. Will we see Luna return to fielding a gravity team alongside their XC squad
Marshall Ames raising the whole skinsuit gravity racing dilemma all over again during the Enduro at Sea Otter. At least he wasn t rocking a full face to complete the giant condom racing a bike visual that Rob Warner used to expound on at length back in the Freecaster days whenever a racer busted out a skinsuit.

 The sport/event has outgrown this venue. Laguna Seca is in many ways an ideal spot to have a mtb get-together, but its geography lacks any proper DH or Enduro trails.

Tahoe needs to develop a competing event.

 Road helmet with goggles might be the greatest thing I've ever seen. I'm gonna wear it on the trail today and try to keep a straight face.

 The only part that was "enduro" was kind of the Dh section. Then it was around 3 miles to the next transition on the pavement. Second Stage was fire road then more uphill and an easy single track. Then it was another bunch of climbing to next stage which was more fire road and a tiny bit of single track that was fun. After that we had to climb back out 5 miles on a pretty good pitch back to Sea Otter. The beer at the end was the best part. Sea Otter needs to shuttle racers out next year. Didn't need a six inch travel bike really.

 Boy did racing that suck! Next year I will just race the DH without doing the XC course! Christ that thing could have been won on a CX bike!
