If your after the best enduro race bike money can buy, or just want a bike that can hit road gaps, smash dh runs and climb almost as fast as it goes down hill then this is the bike for you, Having a real blast on this bike and smashing some strava times every time i throw a leg over it seems to be standard, The bikes stock other than sponsors parts (Kore bar and pedals, 66 Sick grips and saddle), The bikes fully loaded and ready to rip right out the box and lets not forget this bike looks so hot! Very cool bit of kit, full details hit this LINK .

Well last year was my first Bike Fest and we got third in the paired 12 hour event and the plan was to come back stronger, Sadly even getting to the start was a long shot as i picked up a bug the weekend before what would keep me house bound all week, no riding, no work and proper ill it looked like i would not start, night before i made my mind i was going to the event and see how it went, well we did race and it was hard, the wet start made it a lot harder race than last year and the teams were a lot closer as we battled all day long, I might not have been as strong as i wanted but we kept putting out the best laps we could and we ended up 3rd again.
above: 3rd place, epic race..
Bellow: rocking the retro @rocky mountain bicycles top on the last lap.
We raced the Thursday night Iton race and it lived up to its rep as a crash fest, mid race sprint would see three riders hit the floor and then on the last lap a crash mid way around would see more slide along the floor, as for me i stayed near the front and jumped off the front a few times and had a great workout, Next up Stags head road race with some good climbing it was a real good race, i ended up in the chase group and one of the strongest riders, Maybe my strongest showings so far this year as we gear up for BikeFest!!
