    Plattekill

    My buddy and I rode the Plattekill Test Enduro for the ESC this weekend.

    The guys at Plattekill put together a pretty rad course that will definitely fit the big-balled and big-lunged fella who has some handling skills on a trail bike. A lot of the trails are FAST with just enough bumps in there to keep you on your toes. There are plenty of places where the trail was 10-12 feet wide and allows for some interesting line choice.

    There are a couple man-up lines where you can really shave off a few seconds if you have some skills and bravery. We were both on our Stumpjumper Expert EVOs and neither of us experienced any "Oh 5HIT there is no way I'll make it through this" moments. Most of the stages end with a quick, miserable climb to spread out riders before they time out and to make sure it doesn't turn into a downhill race.

    Just thought I'd share. I'm looking forward to tearing it up on race weekend.

    Sam, thanks for the kind words and coming out to help us fine tune our events. Enduro is new to the ESC and we learned a lot over the weekend. Everyone that attended gave us great feedback and great ideas to help our series for the season. We are taking a lot of the recomendations from everyone and hope to make the actual event on July 6th even better.

    Thanks again to all that attended and we really look forward to getting Enduro racing to the east coast.

    Steve
