EWS Training in the City of Jank

Date Jan 28, 2018

Brendon Edgar has been hard at work putting in the pre-season miles for the 2018 Enduro World Series in some of the sloppiest conditions imaginable. If you can make riding the Seymour techgnar in heinous weather look this easy, the competition doesn't stand a chance.

Awesome riding! You almost need a mirrored video of regular joes riding the same trail to fully appreciate the pace and commitment.

Tim Coleman, I hope you are not referring to yourself as a 'regular joe' rider, you were known to throw it down in your day, or still do!!!!

But, ya he is in fast forward for sure.

Thanks Whisper, I'm blushing. I was more saying that most riding videos from the Shore look slow and boring because our trails are often so janky. So to fully appreciate the skill of the rider in a video like this almost needs your regular joe riding the same section.

what's meant by jank in this context? Is it a container for the technical/gnarly trails that the shore has to offer?
(The term usually has a perjorative tone but I've never ridden on anything other than trails that make me ridiculously happy and grateful).
