Ten Fidy Endurance Throwdown
the Vultures Knob Double Down Endurance Race
SEPTEMBER 27 | You asked, begged and screamed for the return of this titanic, immensely memorable and hefty haul of VK courage so we paired it up with some Oskar Blues half-baked & fully roasted Ten Fidy for the af-ter-math or what we call the rehydrate and recovery party. The endurance throw-down returns to Vulture's Knob with double the laps of a normal cross country race on the mighty VK course..this is no race to lollygag, cruise and dawdle, here you gotta push, pedal, jump and corner! ...you best be rid'n and not hid'n. See you September 27
