You can get 90-100% of your pace in three runs
Andrea Bruno’s statement above may sound like a bold call, but the reality of racing in enduro events is that one must learn and remember a trail’s ins and outs to a high enough degree to ride it both fast and, importantly, safely, in a relatively short amount of time.
Why should this apply to everyday trail riding? The answer being that we could all do with studying the trail when we ride it in order to recognise the danger points, fast spots etc. so that we can ride more safely and with more flow (which of course means more fun!).
