    Enduro / Super D vs Endurance XT

    Please school me on the difference of Enduro/super D and Endurance XT? I currently to 4-6 hr endurance races in Texas... I ride a 29er, Tallboy carbon Santa Cruz... Plan on doing this Enduro in Durango..Do I have the right bike, equipment , training... ? I simply thought this was going to be 2 days of a 6 hr MTB race with a lot more inclines and declines... No?

    An Enduro is a race where you have multiple un-timed uphill sections, and multiple timed downhill sections.

    A Super D is just one long ass, predominantly downhill race.

    An Endurance XC (cross country) race is what I think you mean, and there is a section/sub-forum just above this one for that.

    Over the weekend only about 1-2 hours of the riding will be timed- the mostly downhill sections. For enduro you're going to want 5"+ travel bike ideally but you can ride it with any bike. Training is focused somewhat less on endurance and more on quick effort (interval)
