What is Mondraker Enduro2 Davos?
It’s a multi-day alpine mountain bike enduro race for teams of two in Davos Klosters, Switzerland. The focus is on having fun on the region’s first-class trails on the high alpine trails with entrants from an international field.
This is the third edition of Mondraker Enduro2 Davos taking place from Thursday, September 5 to Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Wideopenmag will be fielding a pretty solid team with Hutch and Christo making up the pair, racing together. They’ll be racing in the under 77 category and must always ride together with the timed run beginning from the moment the first rider crosses the starting line until the second crosses the finish line. Team work will be key with each rider pulling the other down the trail and picking lines as they race blind.
What should they expect?
The total course distance is around 120 kilometres, with approximately 1500 metres of elevation gain including transfers and around 12,000 metres of downhill. Over the three day race anywhere between 15 and 20 stages are raced so it will be a demanding event with long descents and a variety of superb terrain. Expect to see 450 people racing (225 teams of 2) from a very international community. 14 nations from Europe and overseas were represented in 2018.
· Two men, ages added, under 77 years
· 77+: Two men, ages added, 77 years or more

The trails in the area deliver real alpine, big mountain riding. With stunning views to the Swiss lakes below and mountain peaks protruding and dominating the sky line. This is real mountain biking country.
