I went for this one for day 1. The diametric opposite of my regular enduro rig this thing is both so fast and so sketchy. My body has rarely felt so abused!

Post race + not many minutes: assume the position. Ice for my poor abused wrist and a handy concrete block for draining my acid filled legs. I laid here for some considerable time!
Getting loose on the hardtail paid off. Fastest Overall Enduro Female Day 1!
