With a new van and the same killer attitude, Santa Cruz Factory Racing once again hit the road. Over the weekend, the team of Santa Cruz Bicycles forklift drivers, wheel technicians, frame builders, and friends of the factory took on the Battle Born Enduro in Reno, Nevada.
The kick-off of the California Enduro Series was not for lightweights — the loose, fast course combined gut-busting climbs, elevations that left us beach boys wheezing, and rough, rocky conditions over 25 miles with 4,500 feet of climbing.
