Maunsell Team joins #cbearian community - June 2016
Impressed with C-bear BB92GXP no creak Silent Speed Performance bottom bracket,
Team Maunsell is upgrading with more #cbearceramicbearing, getting ready for Enduro World Series in La Thuile Italy.
Father Cieran taught #Jonathan Maunsell(22) Leah Maunsell(16) to cycle at a very young age. Both now intensely involve in Enduro racing. Leah took her first win in an U12 event and quickly began racing against very experienced women who were often more than twice her age. Leah Maunsell - Irish Enduro wunderkind, currently Number 1 in enduro world series women U21.
Go back in history a bit, here is a glimpse of them both in action. https://youtu.be/WfwKhHPZjP8

Enduro is a form of Mountainbike racing in which there is a number of timed downhill sections of trail, and a number of uphill transfer stages, which are not timed, but might have time limits to complete. It is a stage-race format where the winner is the rider who accumulates the lowest combined time from the various timed sections.
Enduro differs from XC cross-country cycling racing (which historically has more emphasis on cardiovascular fitness and less emphasis on technical ability) and pure downhill cycling racing formats, which may contain little to no climbing or cross country skills.
Enduro's 'All Mountain' discipline therefore favours riders with a breadth of skill, on multi discipline cycles; lightweight XC bikes may lack sufficient suspension travel for fast downhill control, whilst full DH bikes may not allow a rider to climb the uphill sections.
