Norco Factory Racing team member Sam Blenkinsop is a familiar face on the World Cup DH circuit, but he's also starting to appear at more and more Enduro World Series events. He's no slouch on the smaller bikes either, a fact that his 4th place finish at this year's Crankworx Rotorua enduro, and a 7th place finish at the Samoens EWS round last year demonstrate. This year he'll be competing at five EWS races, along with racing the full World Cup schedule. That may seem like a lot, but Sam drew comparisons to Supercross racing, where athletes compete in 17 races over the course of a season. For this weekend's race, he's aboard a carbon Norco Range outfitted with parts from Race Face, Shimano, Fox, MRP, Novatec, Formula, and Schwalbe.
