ENDUROCROSS- HOW THE WOMEN CONQUER THE SPORT…

Thanks to Diahann Tanke for pics and words

The EnduroCross season was a short one, but squeezed to the bursting point with action. One of the unique factors about EnduroCross is that amateurs get to race the event!  And this includes the Women’s Pro class. Here’s  the three ladies who took the podium at the Glen Helen series and their thoughts on the event.

Shelby on training for EnduroCross: “I practice for EnduroCross by doing as many laps as I can on an actual EnduroCross track. It’s a style of riding this is hard to mimic but takes a lot of work to perfect.”

 

Morgan Tanke on bike setup for EnduroCross:  “An EnduroCross setup for me is night and day different than my off-road race bike. We always run a good Kenda gummy tire in the rear for extra traction in the obstacles. I’m not a very tall person so my EnduroCross bike is always lowered at least one inch. And I also like to setup my suspension pretty soft and forgiving to help out in the rock section.”

 

Louise Forsley on what is the hardest part of EnduroCross? “I think the hardest part about EnduroCross is staying consistent. There are many opportunities to make mistakes between the obstacles and the amount of laps we’re doing. The racers are all pretty close together too so if you go down it’s easy to lose a position.”

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The pits at Valley Cycle Park (Muntz) circa 1974. My steed was ’72 CZ 400, I fit it with a plastic ‘coffin’ tank, moved up the shocks (helped by the guys at Horizon’s Unlimited) and after blowing up my Arnaco rear dampers the first time I tried the ‘moved up’ technology, I fit it with Yamaha ThermaFlo shocks. Behind me is my girlfriends (soon to become the boss) green Torino. That’s how we got to the races, I tossed it in her trunk!
