Did that make sense?

What model and size Gas Gas do the National Enduro riders ride in the National Enduro series? Any info available about their set-ups?

And who are these guys, they're doing quite well!

A good place to start is www.ggna.com

This is the US importer's web site. For starters, his two sons campaign the bikes on the national circuit. One on the 200, one on the 300.

Jim Cook at Smackover Motorsports (www.smackovermotorsports.com) is pretty up on what the boys from LA are doing too.

I've ridden with Rich Lafferty during his riding school last month. I can tell you his "factory backed" '01 XC250 is stock except for personal preferance items (bars, handguards, suspension, etc.), GPR damper, and a spark arrestor.

If you have any questions not answered by the GG riders in the forum just call Jim Cook at SMS or GGNA directly.

You can read a 'test' on Rich's bike in the current issue of Dirt Rider.

They good things to say about his bike.

Hey Big Dog(bgdawg); didn't think a teacher should be phonetic:

On a different subject, you mention you ride with Nathan during the week. Just how often does a National caliber Enduro rider train? Are the during the week rides play rides or is he out just busting laps on a MX or HS course. Just curious!

I have ridden with them in the past and they all have their local woods courses to play on. They are fun to watch for the first 20 seconds. Then they are out of site........

Sorry ClW , I am a teacher,(Agriculture Production) Not an English
Teacher , hope you are able to understand my Ms. typing!
When we ride, sometimes 30minitues on a grass track hard and fast!
Sometimes we practise certain turns, same tight section.
Other times we hit the enduro trails and ride a 2hr. harescramble!
We try to have fun while getting in shape!

we do try to ride twice a week Mon.--Fri.,
work out three!
riding is of all kinds, Moto-x , harescramble type, grass track , and trails ..... yes we practice balance and quickness a lot!
:think

We ride or race on the week-end :cool: Hope this is helpful!!
Train hard ! Ride hard! win , win , win!!! :D bgdawg
