my wife just got me on a mountain bike and i'm really enjoying it a lot. i was wonderering what an endurance race is. do you win an endurance race by being able to complete the course only? it would seem that there would naturally have to be a person crossing the the finish line first . on sunday i biked 29 miles on my kikapu and i only took 2 very short breaks for a drink of water. maybe if it's what i'm thinking it is i'll begin to train for an enduro race. there's one in particular i'm interested in and that's in the desert at terlingua tx this fall, i believe.
