Erzberg 2015: Sportsmanship at its finest

In case you missed it, the picture below sums up the 2015 Erzberg Red Bull Hare Scramble - the most memorable moment from the event and one that demonstrates true sportsmanship and teamwork at the pinnacle of our sport. Just a small part of why we love enduro!

Jonny Walker, Graham Jarvis, Andreas Lettenbichler and Alfredo Gomez all crossed the finish line together after their magnificent manual ascent of the "Downtown" section of the course to become the first riders in history to share 1st place between 4 riders.

They man-handled, dragged, roped and scrambled their way up the section by forming a human chain in this fantastic spectacle. The weather is always harsh at Erzberg, this year it was extremely hot. The riders even stopped for a picnic half way up the section and could be seen sharing a bag of M&Ms in the heat of the race - where else do you see that?!
