Because you love riding and because you know the buzz of a great race is always better, when shared.

Enduro2 is about living in the moment, not living your life through recounted stories and images, not through social media and Strava.  It’s about sharing that experience on a personal level, with a group of riders from around the world that are all right there with you and participating for the same reason as you are. Not necessarily to win, but to participate, to enjoy, and to remember…..

With the new world of big sponsorship deals and huge media attention brought by the E.W.S. and other ultra-professional, global events, we felt that the idea of ‘just having fun’ & ‘shredding great trails with your mates’ has been somewhat diluted.

We missed the idea of simply adventuring with your best riding buddy;  in starting & finishing together on all the fun parts, not merely on the liaisons. We wanted to return the focus to camaraderie and friendship, of high fives, of man- and girl-hugs, and of stopping mid-stage to help your mate (rather than riding straight over their flailing body as they block your path to a fastest-finish).

But how could this goal be achieved, whilst maintaining the key elements of any race: Challenge, Adventure, and Competition?  The solution is simple:  complete the whole event in teams of two riders!

Bringing a fresh approach to the well-established Enduro format, this 3-day ultra-social stage race is quite different to all other Enduro Races you’ve seen before.

On each stage you must start together and finish together, and thus you will following your partner throughout the stage.  It’s still blind Enduro racing, but you’re very much in-it-together, you’re experiencing all the thrills and fun of the race, and at the same time.   All those hilarious race-run near-misses and runs-of-your-life that no-one ever saw?  Now your riding buddy is the only one who can judge, and this will perhaps be even more important that what the clock says at the end of the event.

Teamwork and tactics on how to work together become a factor in getting the best results, and we’re always excited about seeing each pair’s unique interpretation of this strategy during our events.

Davos Enduro2 (Switzerland)         NEW in 2017

As well as the 3rd edition of Les Arcs Enduro2, new for 2017, we’re incredibly stoked to announce Enduro2 Davos/Klosters (to the theme of ‘the hills are alive with the sound of music’, Lederhosen, and blonde farm girls named HEIDI skipping happily through the pastures).  Little did you know that the famous location of the annual World Economic Forum, as frequented by the world’s most powerful leaders and business celebrities, and the preferred ski location of the British royal family –  is also home to limitless natural singletrack that is just begging to be ridden straight off the top of their extremely Swiss-efficient lift system.    Danny Macaskill certainly agreed, when he paid a visit to Davos in October and we gave him a sneaky preview of some of Enduro2’s race stages:  Watch Danny Mackaskill’s Davos video right here.
