Pyrenees Enduro MTB Trophy: EnduroBearn

Last Week-end, I participated to a mountain biking race. It took place to Issor, nearly to Oloron-Sainte-Marie. Over these two days, 107 competetors confront one another.

We were 4 of my moutain bike club to participate. To increase our pleasure, we were placed us from slowest to fastest. All 30 seconds we went one after another. Like this, the challenge was to catch up the person who was before us. Fortunatly nobody catches up me!

What is Enduro moutain Biking?

This sport is booming. Over these two days, there were 9 downhill runs call “Spéciale”. Shortest runs last 4 minutes and longuest runs last 20 minutes. 20 minutes is very long when you are at your maximum capability. The objective is to do the best time. But that not all. Once you are arrived, you have a limited time to meet up the next start! Generally you climb up between 100 to 800m vertical gain for each line calls “liaison”.

This sport is very attractive. There are a lovely atmosphere, real fairplay and you take a real pleasure.

I let you discover my last championship where I finnished 24 th because of punctured front tire…
