Spoken like someone who's never tried to be competitive at an elite level enduro. The weekend is long and stressful AF. It takes an incredible amount of logistics AND fitness just to get your practice laps in, and then you've gotta worry about leaving enough in the tank to race well. It's certainly not what I'd call "relaxing," and these guys want to offer a care-free weekend where you're still finding out who ripped the descent fastest. Why does that insult your sense of bike-gaming so much?

Look, this format will never be considered a test of pedaling fitness combined with descending skills. But luckily we have this format call "Enduro" to find the best riders in that regard.

Don't even get me started with this "earn your turns" XC bullshit, though. Go enter a DH race and tell me how fresh you feel after 4 mins of racing.

He's a great rider, but it's also really clear he's dialed those tracks in with lots of time spent at N*. Most of those turns are totally loose and crazy on the main lines.
