    Enduro?

    So any news regarding the Sea Otter Enduro, other than they're having one? Will the DH course be one of the legs? I was going to skip this year, but am considering it for early season training...

    Yep looks like it. Not sure what Enduro means at this point. That course is pretty much XC no?

    one could ride it on an XC bike, but you'd be a lot faster on a 5-6" bike. There's a couple hits in there that wouldn't be xc bike friendly, a rough washboard-ish part or two. But yeah, the course is relatively tame.

    I think there was a hard tail category for the dh race in the past.... so people were racing their dj/slope bikes.

    Enduro course is up. First segment appears to be the DH course.

    Anyone ridden it before? Should a total noob enduro-ite avoid it or just take it slow?

    Rad they are using Goat Trail, but stage 2?

    That top section is pretty lame. Loose DG, plenty of places to break yourself off.

    This is such a deflation of my stoke bubble.

    Take a look at the XC course, it's pretty much CX. That would explain the Enduro course and why it is pretty much XC.

    Very disappointing course design having that much paved road.

    No way. I don't believe it. I mean, maybe it's true, but you should double check your confirmation. If you did get in, you are stoked! But I'd still double check it-

    Rode around Laguna yesterday and the "Enduro" less the "DH" and pretty much a HT29 will kill this event! IMO

    To much fire road climbing plus the nice 5 mile climb out after you finish on trail 41.

    The XC course is going to be nice this year with the changes
