DeVo – 22.06.24 – Rushmere Timed Runs

On Saturday mornings DeVo we ran a session of timed runs to practice and prepare for a downhill or enduro race. With  a timed period of practice and then timed runs on the trail known as Curly Wurley at Rushmere Country Park. It’s a great track short but tight and twisty  that provides more than enough challenges for around 30 seconds of riding.
