Being hailed as “the best hard enduro in the US”, we take a look at Round 4 of the AMA Hard Enduro Series at Silver Mountain in Kellog, ID. A super, tough course gave both participant and spectator that next level of thrill. With more than 470 total riders participating things shaped up to be an epic race. There were 15 women signed up for the Women’s class and 2 women also signed up for the A class. The course itself had several steep rocky hills that went both up and down, riverbeds, creek crossings and some foggy weather played into the mix. Chairlifts were available to bring spectators from different vantage points. Part of the course included an Endurocross track and a pit that was referred to as the “Struggle bus” that included tires, logs and rocks. Hold onto you seat and take a look at some of the action from Idaho with FXR athletes, Melissa Harten, Stephen Foord, Monique Johnson and Branden Petrie who took on the mountain.
