450 riders from 23 different countries got their first taste of dirt at the 2014 Enduro World Series in Chillean, Chile, and boy was it good! Mesmerizing, high-alpine vistas tower over singletrack winding through blazing fall colors to provide an other-worldly backdrop for a battle among the fastest mountain bikers on the planet. We can make fun of the Enduro craze until our chains fall off, but there's no denying that the scenery, terrain and riding at this race is unparalleled. Watch the show, then book a flight to Chile for yourself.
Thanks to Sven Martin and Dave Trumpore for their globe-trotting story.
