There were two Whistler events in the Sea to Sky enduro series. Those were this years version of "The Beast" and "Funduro" from last year.

Bike Park Enduro at the end of this month. It could be considered fun, as a chairlift is provided.

Im thinking about doing it on a modified DH bike:lol:

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

funduro was a 1-time deal. crankworx enduro is closest you'll get to it, though with far less timed pedalling.

tried to mix things up with our 2 enduro series events, but attendance was still low whether the courses were long or short, easy or hard.

lots of race burnout these days, too much going on. we're going to simplify next year, got something cool and unique in the works…

I liked the moto Enduro/trials style climbs
just have to get up them with out putting a foot down, time doesn't matter

hey, that sounds like fun. i'm there that weekend to boot. transitions are pretty superfluous so i don't see any reason not to run a big bike (apart from going slow, of course). last time i did totw was on my small bike; sledding it would be a fun change of pace. will see if i can duct tape a dropper to the dusty dh rig…

I could throw a 32t ring with 11-42 cassette on the big bike. A Reverb could give the proper extension. Get one of those rubber bungie cords to lower the fork for the climbs.

Comments such as, "Aye mate, hes takin da piss outta Enjuro"make sure to emphasize the invisible hard J in Enduro;) Might be heard all day

i did it on the big bike; wasn't expecting having to pedal to the peak from the roundhouse. not a bad warmup though, and worth the bonus totw run. a fun morning rip.

Stage 1: Top of the World
Stage 2: No Joke to Little Alder
Stage 3: Duffman to Golden Triangle.

It was a fun event. Worth the admission just for the TOTW ride. I would like a do over though…. :)

Stage 2 was to be In Deep, but was switched due to the rain
