Hi everyone! I came here looking for some information. I am just getting into mountain biking and I am already heavily into motocross. I love watching supercross and I know all of the riders and all the big races. I want to say the same about MTB but I don't know where to start. I only know Aaron Gwin and Cam Zink but I want to know everything about the professional side of the sport. I want to follow all the big races and pros. Help me! Thanks!

You can start by looking up the major race series; Enduro World Series, World Cup Downhill and Cross Country, Crankworx. Now for racers Troy Brosnan, Sam Hill, Jared Graves, Sam Blenkinsop, Wyn Masters, Eddie Masters, Loic Bruni, Greg Minnaar, Danny Hart. Those are just to name a few, and you can always go look up the Vital RAW playlist.
