With the help of some friends, we built some bikes, packaged ourselves in these yellow linen shirts and shipped ourselves across the Atlantic to the Italian Riviera in order to experience the 1st ever MTB Enduro Trophy of Nations. We’re not professionals, far from it, but we did the math and it turns out that most of you aren’t either. So this was our chance to see what the race–more than that–the whole thing would be like to experience. We did our very best to document the experience. On this page, you’ll find a nearly endless amount of words, hordes of pictures, and a short but delightful video recapping the whole thing. Now did we forget to hit send and put this into the world? Let’s say yes. The important thing is that it here now, in the middle of winter with some bright sunny moments to get you through the dark days. Just know the joy of being is a Tourist is as much about the recollection as it is the moment.
