Many mountain bikers are missing racing right now but, for the younger generation, the loss is especially poignant. After getting their first taste of racing in the last couple years, many of Victoria, B.C.’s Dirt Squad were looking forward to stepping up to race the Norco Canadian Enduro Series this year.

While that series is on hold until 2021, coach Adam Walker is keeping his crew of youth focused and hungry to improve their riding.

As Walker says, it’s more than just results that makes racing so important to young riders. It’s the community, the friends, and the goals that draw youths into the world of enduro racing.
