Rain, mud, crashes, comebacks. Practicing lines, dialing in gear, and taking some moments to appreciate the beauty in faraway places like Tasmania. This is the life of a pro enduro racer, and it sums up the past weekend for Giant Factory Off-Road Team riders Mckay Vezina and Rae Morrison.

Mckay started off strong with a top-5 pro men’s finish in Stage 1, and finished the weekend 21st overall on his Trance Advanced team bike. Rae, representing Liv in the elite women’s category on her Hail Advanced team bike, battled back from a few crashes to finish 8th for the weekend. Here’s our latest behind-the-scenes look at the team from Round 2 of the 2017 Enduro World Series.
