Check out the video of Harlot shredder Patty Lenz cleaning Hidden Canyon trail (Syncline) – a technical single-track located on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. The dirt has been stellar here in the gorge until this recent monsoon of rain, ice and snow hit. Hope you all are getting out and enjoying the trails!

The final race of the Oregon Enduro Series was also the North American Enduro Tour finals and in turn, a stacked field of riders showed up to take advantage of the points and prizes. Day one included three stages at Sandy Ridge that was rocky and technical, full face helmets and pads required. Day two was another intense and technical day of riding the slopes of Mt. Hood and the notorious Ski Bowl downhill course.
