The fifth round of the Enduro World Series rolling into the high altitude mountains of Aspen-Snowmass for another exciting week of competition.
With it's signature big mountain terrain, white bark tree's and dusty loose corners the Snowmass mountain range was full of exciting trails for the riders to tackle.
The 'boss' aka Nico Vouilloz would have to sit this round out due to illness and not feeling 100%. Although good news for the team as New Zealander Rae Morrison was back to full health after suffering a shoulder injury during the previous 4th round in La Thuile.
With a few days practise the riders were pumped on the trails and looking to the skies as the weather clouds rolled in.
Solid performances for Rae Morrison on her first ride back from injury, Rae battled the fierce Womens field with a few 11th place stage finishes. However a strong ride on Stage 3 put Rae back into the top 10, riding strong and finishing with either overall.
More amazing results for U21 racer Adrien Dailly who stomped his authority on the season again putting in impressive results that would put him into a top 20 overall.
Adrien took two big stage wins on the first day of racing which would see him maintain his lead over main rival Sebastien Claquin with strong 2nd placed stages for day 2. Stoked for Adrien who extends his lead in the overall u21 rankings.
