The Jank Files - Season 2, Episode 1

September 02, 2020

It's hard to believe that the 2020 EWS season kicked off 344 days after the 2019 EWS season came to a close - but at this point we should probably be expecting the unexpected. It’s been a long year for everyone and the official enduro race season has only just begun.

For Jesse Melamed, Rémi Gauvin, and Andréane Lanthier Nadeau, committing to travel from Canada to Europe was both exciting and stressful. The long lead up to departure and added health precautions, in combination with maintaining the drive and focus to reach the podium, has made for an exceptionally challenging year. But in the end, the long offseason of training in the rainy Sea to Sky corridor paid off on race day, with Jesse placing first in horrendous conditions.

Racing is back, the team is back, and The Jank Files is back with Season 2, Episode 1. Enjoy!
