I already ride enduro, will this be easy?
Some enduro riders get quickly disappointed as you are going slower, you don’t have a seat for an anchor and the bike is completely different. As long as you are willing to learn, come to social rides and simply persist, you will improve both your trials and enduro riding. Just take Graham Jarvis or Tim Coleman for example.
