WATR – 2016 Green Marble Enduro

Over a dozen members of the Washington Area Trail Riders contributed to make the 2016 Green Marble Enduro the best ever. There was a record turnout of 246 riders. The club has worked on this enduro with the R&T Club since it was re-established four years ago. As always, proceeds from the event benefit the community.

WATR out in the GWNF scouting for the S500

Several WATR members have been out scouting areas to ride for the upcoming Shenandoah 500. The forest is looking great! Found some water and some rocks. The crew put in a long day. On the bikes at 0730 and didnt get home until 1900. GPS says we did 365 miles and a guest of ours did 435 miles. Had 1 flat, a torrential down pour and a day of fun on the bikes.

Three Springs Enduro


Bob and Troy cool off in the water crossing, after doing some Three Springs Enduro course work/prep.  The water crossing is a spectator favorite during the enduro, for obvious reasons.  Unfortunately Chris was shooting stills and missed catching a YouTube classic when Troy grabbed a bit too much throttle on one of the passes through the creek.  🙂


Clearing trail at Taskers Gap

Dan, Vince, Andy and Thom headed out to Taskers Gap last week to clear a pretty good size tree.  Dan made short work of it and we were able to hump the gear up the hill and to the vehicle just in time to miss the lightning and hail.  Fun was had by all.
