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.
