    Awesome... it is a true enduro. Definitely would not want to ride this on a DH bike. My GPS showed over 1500' of climbing and the actual timed sections both have a ton of climbing in them combined with lots of fun technical bits finishing with Bear DH course which is actually a ton of fun on a 5" bike.

    The Vedder Enduro was really a DH race with almost zero climbing but this is totally different. I suspect you would enjoy it... you in?

    I am riding it thurs after work w Aleksa if you want to come? Not sure on time yet. I was going to take the FB but maybe the Lush is a better choice??

    I got kid duty Thursday night so no ride for me :( ...

    Tough call on the bike. The Firebird is probably a better choice since you will be much faster on the timed stages (except the first part of the first stage). The climb up will be harder work but probably worth it.

    The Lush is a little too XC... I will ride my Mach 5.7 which sits in between the Lush and the Firebird.
