Last week was gnarly. Had such a blast racing but it was definitely challenging. The mix of fast downhill stages and extremely physical flats made it anyone's race. It was a really good feeling to see all the time training pay off when it counted. Shout out to @terriintransit and @seamuspowell for absolutely killing it. Much respect 🙏. #paincave
Well folks, that's it! The #kuatduroteam had done it again! We've yet to have a race this season without someone on the podium! @jesse_mtb_livingston is bringing home a 3rd place finish in his category at stop #4 of the @nationalenduroseries! @its_jimmy also landed 4th for his category! Now it's time for the long trek home :) Back to the trusty Küat van we know and love. /// @lo_liv @theslick80 #enduro#mountainbikes#vanlife

Valmont is way too conveniently located on the way home from trail rides and the #PivotMach6 has been a blast on them jumps.
