    That lad is without a doubt considerably more Enduro than most of the population, let alone me.

    Good on Matthew, first saw him riding in one of McTrail riders videos and he’s pretty handy on a bike.

    probably being an idiot but how does he make the Tailfin rack work without locking up his suspension?

    I knew he was leading it….

    In fairness though, he is a decent/high level EWS racer.

    MATTHEW FAIRBROTHER takes the win after 6 days of enduro racing, with his personal total of 582km and +17,300m of elevation, versus 165km and only 4245m of climbing for everyone else”

     

    This is absolutely ludicrous. I feel like this needs a bump on the homepage to get the views it deserves.

     

    Great PB article here:

    This is absolutely ludicrous.

    The stats of his riding vs what the others rode is utterly ridiculous! What an achievement, definitely deserves wider recognition for sure.

    I know people often say a rider is “a machine”, but has anyone checked that he isn’t actually an android or something?

    Absolutely ridiculous achievement.

    I was very, very impressed with him doing the Tour of Mont Blanc in a one-er last year – because it nearly finished me doing it in four days, so it gave me a brilliant perspective.

    But to cover that ground while also winning a bloody race? Respect is due.

    I had my doubts when he confessed he doesnt even wear padded shorts
