A beautiful sunny day greeted everyone to the rolling fields and tight woodland trails of upstate New York for round 3 for the J Day Offroad Sprint Enduro series. Trail Jesters Ben Kelley, Josh Toth and Jason Klammer were out in force and focused on only one thing … the top step of the podium. By 1:00pm when the AA/A/B race started temperatures were up in the 80’s. After a short riders meeting John Day sent 147 of New Endland’s best enduro riders out to do battle. Spectators flocked into the trails and fields to see the riders going all out in Woods, Extreme and Cross timed tests. Each rider had to run each test 4 times with all 12 timed results adding up to their final score. In the end defending series champion Ben Kelley stood a top the podium with team mates Jason and Josh next to him.
Sprint Enduros are a great format for our guys to continue to train and improve their speed in preparation for the 2016 International Six Days of Enduro to be held in Spain in October. A final treat for this day was to have MSR brand manager Brent Harden in from California along with New England MSR reps Keith Hiser and Paul Goyette to join us in celebrating the jester podium sweep.
