Enduro Racer Marco Osborne on Winning the Mammoth Mountain Pro GRT

Marco Osborne thunders down the rocky Pro GRT course at Mammoth Mountain - rocks that claimed many victims over the weekend's racing

Marco Osborne surprised everyone, and may have blurred the boundaries between DH and enduro, by handily winning the Pro GRT at Mammoth Mountain last weekend on the same bike that he uses for his day job as a professional enduro racer. Enduro bikes had already been used with some success at the pedally Pietermaritzburg World Cup DH course, and while the Mammoth downhill also featured a stretch where riders had to get on the gas, it also had plenty of technical and steep - with a couple of rock gardens that gave big bike competitors the shivers. Watching Osborne come down caused more than a few doubletakes. For one thing, you don't see too many DH racers sporting Leftys, and it's almost as rare to see one aboard a lightweight carbon machine like his Cannondale Jekyll. We caught up with the WTB/Cannondale rider to get the back story.

I brought my new Cannondale Jekyll 27.5, equipped with a SuperMax Lefty and I knew that it was capable of riding this course.

I used the same bike setup for the downhill as I did for the enduro race the next day. I didn't have to change anything. My bike is equipped with a mix of Shimano XT and XTR group-set and the new VX series pedals from VP components. I ran a WTB prototype Carbon front wheel and an aluminum WTB frequency I25 wheel in the rear. The WTB tires I have been racing enduro on all season are about 1050 grams, so I never have to worry about flats. I use the new WTB Breakout in the front and the WTB Trailboss in the rear. Both tires have thick casings and roll very well.
