Bluegrass Trophy of Nations
Bluegrass was at the roots of the Enduro, pushing this format with a tour that remains for all famous.
Once again, Bluegrass was at the roots of the first race that awarded UCI jersey: the Bluegrass Trophy of Nations powered by SRAM.
And what a first! Tackling the iconic stages, the teams of nations, industry and amateurs battling hard.
Drama and joy!
Drama when Kevin Miquel (SUNN Enduro Team) broke his hand the day before the race while training.
Joy when Isabeau Courdurier (Intense Mavic Collective) proudly received the gold medal, her Legit Carbon at her feet!
This hard race was also the expression of what makes the Enduro so special: fellowship and sharing.
In that spirit, we were pleased to reach the 11 spot with our Bluegrass Factory Team! Composed by two journalists and Liam Moynihan, we’ve spent a weekend sharing and living an unprecedented experience.
Tom Garcia (Endurotribe) and Brian Gerow (Singletracks) were supported during the race by Julien Mandin, the mechanic of Alex Fayolle in DH World Cup.
You can already find the article on Singletracks here.
Stay tuned for more – and mark the date for next year.

Brian Gerow into stage 1.
Liam had a flat early stage 1. He did manage to fix it and do stage 3 with a torn tire.
But he had to swap it back in the pits.

Tom did a strong performance and was still pushing hard during the last meter of the race.
Ace race! Brian Gerow.
