Behind the Scenes | The EWS Women of Instagram
The cool thing about Instagram is it lets us connect with people we find interesting, whether they are our close friends or famous celebrities. With a quick follow you can get a look into their personal lives. In this case it often involves a lot of jealous scrolling through travel photos and race-spec bikes but there’s also some humour and random lifestyle shots thrown in. We had a look at the Instagram accounts of the top enduro racers and found a lot of them worthy to follow. Enjoy!
