Weapons of Choice | POC Scottish Enduro Series Round 1

This weekend the POC Scottish Enduro Series kicks off again for another exciting season. Once again the Innerleithen car park was full of excited racers looking to test their winter fitness, or just to see what enduro was all about. With muddy trails and ridiculously steep descents, it will be sure to be an action packed weekend. We did a quick pit walk to see what bikes the riders were racing this year.
