Enduro MTB

The boys and girls were ripping down the hill—NICE WORK!!! Here are the recaps from coaches: "Shredding occurred!”

  1. Stages 1 and 2 were slick, rooty, and physically demanding fitness.
  2. Stage 2, the longest stage of the day, top times from 10:19. (we ride uphill for a reason!)
  3. Stages 3 and 4 followed a long pedal transfer, the crew rolled together and the vibes produced fast times out of Javier Reynaud Kalb ’26 (3:36.25), and Finn Haskett ’25 (3:36.602) on stage 4, which shook down to places 6th and 7th on the stage for the age category.
  4. Stage 5 brought us back across the road for a technical slippery descent over roots, rocks, and off-camber. It challenged all riders by putting down the team's top time of 6:05.5.
Finn missed the box by one spot (6th) and Javier ended up at 10th. Henry Grohman ’26 was 17th, Jack Furneaux ’26 was 20th. 28 folks in the U15. Awesome shredding, mint tracks, and a proper challenge were embraced with solid attitudes, lots of pasta, and speedy mechanic skills in the pits!
