Santa Cruz Goes Grinduro-ing

October 14 — 2015

The inaugural Grinduro took place this past weekend in Quincy, California, and Santa Cruz sent everyone from Syndicate members to Factory Racers and Free Agents (along with a couple photographers) up to the mountains for a crack at the all-new race. Highlights include:

Justin Robinson: 6th Pro Men
Scott Chapin: 7th Pro Men
Greg Minnaar: 19th Pro Men

Chris Seymour: 3rd Men 35 and Under
Will Ockelton: 9th Men 35 and Over

Scroll on for some photos of the weekend! 

With vistas like this, it's not hard to see why Quincy was selected as the venue

The enduro-style format meant that racers maintained a casual pace between timed stages, and fun was just as important as going fast (well, almost as important)
