So we have had the Enduros Worlds, footage i thought was great, it looked amazingly fun riding, but also something i could maybe do, ie their were not any huge jumps, it was just great trails, yes ridden faster then i can, but ultimatly stuff i could ride,
it also looked great as a spectator sport, watch a stage, then move to the next one in a car whilst compettors are bringing up a lung on the climbs.
also interesting that the DH stars who went to ride appeared to struggle, so maybe more to the whole thing then just speeding down a trail, or is it that Enduro trails unlike DH trails are natural, so do not have the same flow, speed carrying capacity.
anyway the riders , the trails, i certainly found it exciting. and so want to goto italy
He is a boy (we only found out on Monday though and if he'd been a girl she would still have been a mountain biker) and is 5lbs 9oz so there's every chance I could pop him in my camelback. Might try...
