This is Avalanche!
Enduro style DH!
+20 min at 100%! You`ve got to have go technical skills, great lungs... and also luck.
Mojos, Meta 666, Nomads, Prophets MX, Lapierres new Zesty, etc they are all great bikes to compete on this type of races.
180/160 or 180/180 brakes
2,35 front and rear (normally highrollers kind in the front and some higher rollers like the Larsen 2.35 on the rear).
Chainrings in the 36/38 t
Bikes for wining must weigh below 14,5kgs
Ohh... and of course the truly and only Seatpots adjustable! (maverick, CB, GD, AMP... what ever!)It`s essential!
Up... to pedal HARD!
Down... to do technical stuff!
Done some DH marathon races... and LOVE IT! Quiet different from DH, a lot more fun!
Crowded trails...ehhehe it`s completely insane!
