Enduro World Series Media Squid Bike Checks 17

We were surprised they weren't showing off their e-bikes! The bike check goods from our favorite lens-wielding superfans.

Enduro World Series Media Squid bikes are the workhorses that get our favorite photogs up the liaisons and down the tracks to make EWS coverage possible. The athletes are hitting all the stages, but the squids are too, sometimes passing fools in the process. Their bikes are crammed into dodgy uplifts, crashed more often than not, and abused for days at a time, regularly carrying dirt from several different countries before they get a cleaning washing.

They're our indispensable tools of the trade, right up there with cameras and lenses, and while they may not always be shiny and new like the factory bikes they chase around different corners of the world we love them all the same. - Lee Trumpore
