From talking to clark about the style of race stages he has planned it's the polar opposite of what I know about the TOM (never ridden it too much road for my tastes).
I guess I never equate TOM riders with lovers of gnar dh on trail bikes.
Shirk I (kind-of)agree. The percentage of TOM riders wanting to ride enduro's is probably quite low.
However, the north shore/sea to sky/sunshine coast creates many riders that are competent in many formats. I was just trying to influence Clark to not put it on the TOM weekend.
The best example of riders that broke the mold, were the two riders who did the Whistler Gran Fondo, and 4 kings last year. Unfortunately they were just a bit late for the DH.
