Recon was the name of the game today during the Enduro World Series race at Les 2 Alpes, France. Riders had this single day to inspect the four stages that will be raced on Sunday. Some of the courses had never been touched by tires until today, minimizing any advantage for the locals. The courses are ridiculously steep, technical and natural. Not much *bike parking* going on, as riders tackle the Les 2 Alpes tracks. Stage 1 features a very stiff climb, which will be an advantage for strong climbers, but the rest of the stages run like a downhill race. Riders are upping their rotor size and thinking about braking points as best possible. Sunday is going to be exciting to say the least! Enjoy the action and insight from Sven Martin and Lee Trumpore. They're rallying the hills capturing the best shots of this dramatic MTB race format.
