I wanted to share how I have gone about getting ready for the Enduro World Series in the Tweed Valley next week. Last week I collected a new Santa Cruz Bronson which is the first Enduro bike I have had since 2018. With the race being so close I decided I needed to fast-track my riding so that I can enjoy the race and be satisfied with my performance.
You can find out more in the vlog, but a couple of tips people might find useful are:
I decided to ride trails I was familiar with so that I could feel how the bike was reacting and make any changes that were needed
I rode the same track 4 times back to back to build confidence
I started off slow and build pace as my confidence improved
I rode on my own so I didn't need to make any compromises
I focused on the process and not the outcome
I hope you find this video useful and entertaining. If you'd like to see more then please like, subscribe and comment!
