Do You Train Like This?
Thursday, December 22, 2011
I don’t know many people, none actually, who would intentionally head out in drizzly and snowy weather to play around on wet rocks with a two-stroke dirt bike as part of their “training regimen.” You’d have to be some kind of masochist to get off on that stuff. It makes sense then that the top extreme enduro rider of 2011 would spend his time honing skills in the nastiest conditions on the nastiest obstacles.
Screw big doubles and fat whipz (no, I can’t do those either). They’re great for attracting two-wheeled groupies, but when it comes to showcasing bike skill for an audience who knows anything about the intricacies of riding, this crinkle-eyed Brit on a Husaberg is far more impressive.
