RUST#31 * KTM FREERIDE E-XC – electric is the future? * SIX DAYS TO GLORY – RUST’s Tom Sagar made the podium at the ISDE, here’s how * RALLY RAID PRODUCTS – bigger than you might imagine! * ENDUROGP – RUST goes to the races KTM helped save the planet in October, by putting on a launch with no riding. So no petrol consumed. Only the bike was electric… ahh, maybe we’re missing the point? Meanwhile Tom Sagar was consuming mucho fuel and tyres at the ISDE, but given he stood on the second step of the podium it was worth the cost. Rally Raid Products used to race, but now they put their expertise into helping adventure riders create stronger bikes. And EnduroGP came to the UK for an all-new format of enduro. Pretty impressive it looked too. All this and a little bit more in Issue 31. Happy riding and reading. Jon Bentman (Editor, RUST)

ust enduro Day Three: Broken springs (not strings) Day Three signifies the mid-point of the event. This day we got to cover new terrain and new tests, but still it was 7½ hours of riding and 250km. The day was much easier, but the heat still hadn’t give up. The tests were some of the best I have ever ridden, set on grass fields in the rolling valleys with steep hills and cambered turns. The French love their grass tests, as do us Welsh! The day for the team was good but there was something not quite right with the forks on my husky so I told my dad to get the spare forks ready at the final service along with the usual front and rear tyres and air filter. Somehow I managed the fork change and full service in just 11 minutes (it pays to practice). after putting the bike in the parc ferme I took the forks apart (with my good friend Frazer norrie who was riding in a club team for Scotland). We found the springs in the inner chamber had broken so we replaced them with some spare internals and put the forks back together ready to go back on the bike in the 10 minute work period allowed before the start in the morning.
