MOUNT ELBERT EXPEDITION 4401M

WHAT DO ENDURO RIDERS DO BETWEEN TWO NORTH AMERICAN LEGS OF THE ENDURO WORLD SERIES? THEY RIDE. PAULINE DIEFFENTHALER TAKES UP THE TALE IN AN ENID BLYTON STYLE.

You think that enduro racers rest between races, right? Or maybe they train hard? That might be the case if they were merely competitors with their eyes on the stopwatch, but lifelong chums Jérôme Clementz, Pauline Dieffenthaler and François Bailly-Maître aren’t just racers – they’re also driven by passion, an eye for a challenge and a love of adventure and nature.

There is no question of wasting time during a trip and twiddling their thumbs for two weeks between the Aspen and Whistler legs of the 2016 EWS. The fancy ski town of Aspen, Colorado, is in the middle of the Rocky Mountains and after studying the map of Aspen’s surroundings, Jérôme points out that the team is staying a mere couple of hours drive from Mount Elbert; at 4,401m the highest peak in Colorado. One of the fabled ‘Fourteeners’.

Not afraid of a challenge, and with that French penchant for conquering summits on mountain bikes, our three companions set off to attack Mount Elbert the day after the race, once they’ve carefully checked the route and worked out that it’s OK for bikes.
