MEANING OF ENDURO (to us)
Finale has been biult for enduro riding, or the other way around!
Since we started organizing enduro races here (8 years ago!), we've found that a lot of trails are perfect for this discipline. In 8 years, the Enduro World Series has always taken place on different tracks, which highlights the huge variety of trails that this place can offer to the riders. In these 8 editions, athletes have put themselves to the test throughout Finale's backcountry, because each trail is unique and requires different riding skills.
Since 2013 we host the Enduro World Series final round, another great opportunity to have new trails for the fun of the riders.
If you ride Enduro with us, it means that you need some more challenge than if you ride an All Mountain tour. If you like enduro, you like to ride ANY kind of trail. You have knees, elbows and back protectors, and a full face helmet.
Enduro it's also not worrying too much about pedalling a little to reach a great trail (so no DH bikes, please).

INFO ABOUT THE TOUR:
A typical Enduro tour with MTB Guide Finale is a single shuttle uplift to reach the top of the mountain (1.000m high), then a first long ride down, following one of the many trails that start from there, some of them part of previous EWS races. After the first ride down, we'll pedal up for 30/40 minutes to reach other trails, shorter and more technical than the first. After the second ride down, uphill (again for 30/40 minutes) to a third trail, and uphill to a forth, and maybe a fifth... until you get tired of riding! After this... a beer is hardly recommended. Consider that most of the enduro trails in Finale (especially those short and technical) are hard to reach with a shuttle, so think about doing some pedaling to have the chance to ride the best enduro trails!
You can book this tour without any shuttle assistance for uplifts (the real enduro challenge!), with a single shuttle uplift or with full time shuttle assistance.
