The Enduro World Series may have come to a slightly premature end, but that doesn’t mean the discussion is over. Chris Ball said at the outset that this inaugural Enduro World Series would weed out the big-name racers and that the rider atop the podium at the end would truly be the world’s best all-around rider. That man, for 2013, is Jerome Clementz. Is he truly the best rider out there? How about Tracy Moseley, who wound up winning the women’s half of the competition?
While it’d be easy to say Clementz was a ringer for the overall series win, the truth was that he had stiff competition throughout. Who were the best racers this year? Who could take it all in 2014? How about Jared Graves? What will happen to the Enduro World Series next year?
See…There are a hell of a lot of questions still floating about the ether, which is precisely why our hosts Tristan Merrick and Seb Kemp weed out the answers in today’s podcast–with the help of series photographer, Sven Martin, who phoned in from South Africa while trapped on a tennis court, surrounded by angry monkeys. Well, maybe the monkeys weren’t angry, but they were there.
Sit back, listen in and enjoy the best mountain biking race coverage on the planet.
