Walt - the California Enduro Series races still include pedal transfers, even at the bike parks.... 20-30 mile day on the bike, and have some long 12+ minute stages. I think it's a good day of racing on ebike or regular bike.Hell, a lot of the enduros around here have given up on even having the transfers ridden at all and people just ride the lift. It's just a multi-stage DH race at this point.
You can put your e-bike on a chair lift. Saves battery power!Hell, a lot of the enduros around here have given up on even having the transfers ridden at all and people just ride the lift. It's just a multi-stage DH race at this point.
I would assume the point of the race is to have fun and be part of the community.TrainWreck -- there is a failed logic here... why do anything?On strava you can do that for free
You can say "Why race? I can do it on Strava for free."
Why race at Sea Otter, or the Downieville Classic, or an EWS? I can ride at these places on my own for free.
Why travel to Sea Otter,or Downieville, or Whistler, or New Zealand or anywhere? I can ride at home for free.
And if you go to the extreme....
Why ride? I can watch videos online for free - don't even need a bike.
Why do anything?
The answer -- It's for the experience and fun of doing it.
Super stoked the CES is coming to Mt Shasta on July 13th, the eBike class is an added bonus.the more the merrier. This sport is about community, camaraderie and fun - bring on the season ... we can't wait !!!!!
