NRG hosted the second toonie enduro race of the year here in Nelson last week. Exactly 50 riders came out to try their luck at this new “enduro” thing that everyone is talking about. One solid climb and two timed descent stages made up the course, which also featured two brand new sections of fresh loamy trail! Good times were had by everyone, check out these photos for proof.
Huge thanks to the volunteers, photographer, riders, and NRG crew for making this event a success. All proceeds were donated to the Nelson Cycling Club.

1980’s Norco Bushpilot was out in full force. The Dude put down a solid first run on this fully rigid beauty.
Three German guys passing through town on a riding vacation caught wind of the local event and came out to get their enduro on. When times were finalized, all they cared about was if they beat each other. Half way around the world and the mountain bike culture is the same. Riding bikes, having fun, and trying to be faster than your friend.
