Apologies for the lack of postings of late – it turned into a mental end of season with a ridiculous amount of racing – I hit up the Superenduro Sprint round in Tolfa, then a week later was racing at Aston Hill for the 3rd round of the Enduro 1 X-Fusion Southern UK series, then a matter of weeks later was off to race the Enduro World Series final in Finale Ligure!
The great news is that I finished 15th overall in the Enduro 1 series in Masters, with one round missed due to the EWS final, and I had a pretty good race in Finale, finishing mid pack among the world’s best Enduro racers, which I was well pleased with! I was also featured in the awesome Enduro Magazine – click the logo to read my feature:
