The Enduro World Series occurs on the stunning Italian Riviera, in the commune of Finale Ligure, nestled against the Gulf of Genoa.
This location is iconic to enduro riders. This round of the series, the Bluegrass Finale Enduro powered by SRAM, will take cyclists through some of the most challenging, exciting courses the Enduro World Series has to offer.
This visual guide will provide a brief preview of these trails, as well as those responsible for making them what they are. In this article, we preview the 1st day stages the racers will experience, starting with Poste, a trail brought back to life.
Finale Enduro Stage 1
Poste is an old trail that was often frequented by hunters in the past, over-grown and out of use. With the Enduro World Series returning to Finale Ligure, the decision was made to clean up and rebuild Poste for this stage of the series.
It begins with a steep descent from a hill, drawing a singletrack in the grass. The mid-section of the trail features a narrow series of four rocky corners, that will challenge riders. Finally, the trail breaks into a chestnut forest, where the terrain transforms into a grippier, rockier layout with narrower lines for rider’s wheels.
