    Enduro bodies

    What is the general body type by height and weight for the top 10-30 EWS riders?

    I'm pretty skinny and come from an xc background but have really enjoyed the change up racing enduro's. So, I am curious on general body types of the fast guys. Probably need to bulk up a bit.
    Thanks
    If you do something often enough it tends to define you.

    On the shorter side i.e. 5'8"-ish, sinewy & athletic...

    Look at Sam Hill, Martin Maes & Jesse Melamed ^^

    There are a few bigger guys, Jared Graves, Richie Rude etc. but, they're more an exception to the rule.

    Majority of the top guys are as stated earlier. Average height & weight.

    You do get the odd taller guys i.e. 6'2"-ish... even then, they're barely pushing 90kg's

    Very rarely, do you get a Clydesdale i.e. 6ft or over & +220lb's.

    That's going solely on what I've seen of the EWS... top tier are on the smaller side.

    Having attended the most recent BME and Scott Enduro Cup events, I would agree with the sinewy/athletic comment. Richie Rude isn't super tall, probably 5'11", but he's built like a tank....he could be a running back, but he is the exception in the pro class. Fitness abound...the only "dad bods" were in the amateur classes....
