The international race season is over, the pressure’s off. With a week of downtime before the National Enduro Championships, defending champ Chris Panozzo and his protege Ben McIlroy head to their home turf for an arvo of roosting dusty Mt Beauty berms.
We’ll be following this pair, along with the rest of the Shimano Australia supported Enduro crew as they head to Adelaide for the Enduro National Champs too, so keep an eye out for all the coverage soon.
Mt Beauty is one of the original Aussie mountain bike towns, and it has probably produced more top quality riders per capita than anywhere else in the country. The trails play a big part in this – raw, loose, technical, and challenging to ride fast – if you can rip here, you can ride fast anywhere.
