While the Enduro World Series is on pause and the world’s top enduro racers stuck at home waiting for the series to get back underway, we’ve been glued to athletes’ social feeds, rewatching event highlight videos, and rereading old tech articles… and many of you are likely doing the same. To put all that Enduro World Series knowledge to use, we’re running Fantasy Enduro Trivia while we wait for racing to kick off again.
Over 10,000 of you participated in the first round of trivia. We, unfortunately, had to scratch one of the questions due to an error, but we had an impressive 140 people get all 14 remaining questions right. In the draw, it was @hambone2585 that came away with first place and a Shimano XT drivetrain while @stratum came in second, taking the Shimano XT Brakeset, @Kerki taking third place in the draw for a Shimano PRO Cockpit and @rosithedog coming away with the final Round 1 prize of a Lazer helmet. Congratulations @hambone2585, @stratum, @Kerki and @rosithedog. See how YOU did in the standings by clicking here.
