The Kempsey enduro course consisted of two tracks. Riders have all morning to practice the tracks with timed runs starting in the afternoon. I had one practice of each track but went back to attempt A lines that I originally bulked on. The tracks were well balance having B lines that allowed riders of all skill level to race while A lines that provided spectator entertainment and a brief reward of speed. After a little bit of coxing I was hitting the big double on the first track and the big platform gap on the second track. I was impressed with how well the xc bike made the trails seem quite easy to ride. Riding the xc bike also gave me a little advantage on the pedaling sections. I'm very surprised to achieve third however, 2.4 tyres will be on next time. After my position in the first round, I have also managed to sneak up to second place in the Elite Men's Ranking. Should I do the third and final round?
Thanks Duncan from DIY for the Xfusion forks and Pat for showing me how to ride enduro!
Thanks also to Rockytrail for running such a fun event and the Kempsey club for keeping their trails in awesome condition.
