2010 Gordexola Xtreme Returns – Video
This July 3rd the 2010 Spanish Gordexola Xtreme enduro returns. At a casual glance this looks like another one of those “you are not worthy” type of extreme events, rough on the competitors but fun to watch.
So why are the Euros just killing it on these extreme events while over here we are continually serving dumbed down versions of what used to be great races? Our philosophy has turned into “every one gets a trophy for just showing up”. Basically we are just becoming a bunch of whiners and pansies.
What is even more amazing is that for the average Euro rider, a modern enduro bike costs anywhere from two to four times as much to buy (as a percentage of income). VAT alone adds thousands of dollars to the purchase price. Yet here they are tossing it all away just to compete in some gnarly race. I have to laugh when I think about people complaining because our local enduro was so tough that they dented their pipe!
Anyway, enjoy this little gem and remember: you are not worthy.
